As the coronavirus has rapidly spread around the globe just about every aspect of life is being disrupted – not least education, which was already in crisis. That begs the question: How do we educate students during a pandemic?

We get the view from the World Bank’s Global Director for Education, Jaime Saavedra, who walks us through COVID-19’s impact schools, students, learning, and the solutions countries are implementing.

We hear from two mothers in Colombia as they try to navigate the stress of working and now teaching at home.

It all comes to you from the World Bank headquarters in Washington, DC and from our colleagues around the world. Subscribe, listen, share, and review!
