With children worldwide struggling with school closures and many adults faced with the task of reskilling, education has been immensely impacted during the pandemic. But the COVID-19 crisis has been an alarm for more than just equal opportunities; it’s also a plea for greater equity in the distribution of respect and status. The future of education lies in providing valued and recognised paths for everyone, whether it is through higher education or professional training programmes.

 Organised on the back of the release of the OECD's Education at a Glance 2021, the panel will explore these topics, and ask the most pressing questions--How can we ensure that the COVID-19 crisis reshapes both our practices and attitudes toward education at all ages, for all career paths, and how can we create lasting solutions to address education inequities?
