Remarks by Doreen Bogdan-Martin, ITU BDT Director, at the International Day of Education – Panel on Promising Innovations to Transform Education

The Third International Day of Education stressed the necessity to protect and mobilize funding for education, give voice to “community heroes” (who acted to leave no learner behind during school closures), and present innovations that pave the way towards more resilient and inclusive education systems.
