Cox’s Bazar Education Sector: COVID 19 Response Strategy, 2020 – Reaching Every Learner – Bangladesh

Needs Overview

On 24th March 2020, the Refugee Relief and Repatriation Commissioner (RRRC) (based in Cox’s Bazar) released a statement defining the essential and critical activities in all 34 camps in Cox’s Bazar for COVID 19. The statement defined education as a non-essential activity. This resulted in severely restricted access for UN and NGO staffs and the closure of learning facilities. This closure means that the education sector closed nearly 6,000 education facilities across the camps for the foreseeable future, disrupting learning of over 325,000 children (of which, 49 per cent are girls and adolescents; aged 3 to- 24 years) and cutting off their access to education.

The pandemic-induced economic downturn is taking a toll on America’s educators. 

Job gains during the month of September, as reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics Friday, were weaker than expected. One of the main drivers: job losses in public education. 

Employment in local government education, or jobs largely in the K-12 public school system, dropped by 231,000 last month, the BLS reported.
