In an effort to prevent the transmission of Covid-19, governments around the world have closed schools. School closures are negatively impacting the well-being of children and young people and, in some contexts, might not be effectively reducing transmission. The INEE and the Alliance call on policymakers to: 1) Consider the impacts of school closures on the education and protection out-comes of children and youth; 2) Balance these impacts with a considered review of the health impacts; and 3) Make informed, child-centered decisions on when and why to reopen schools.
