The OECD has released their Education at a Glance 2020 report on the performance of education systems across member countries and partner economies.
At the official release event, Andreas Schleicher, Director of OECD Education and Skills, highlighted how the many inadequacies and inequities in our education systems has been highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
WorldSkills Champion Yousra Assali joined the global conversation to reflect on the impact of the impact on young, skilled talent.
“The COVID-19 has changed the lives of all of us; everyone is dealing with this pandemic in different way. As student it has completely changed the way of my studies, I started taking online classes,” said Yousra.
“At the beginning adapting to a new and different study method made me feel stressed and anxious, but after deciding to see things from a different perspective, or think outside the box, I realized how interesting it was to see how everything had become virtual yet effective. Thanks to this pandemic, it makes us think differently and takes us out of our comfort zone and also gives birth to blessing thing, a new innovative and technological method of study and work.”
