Education Reimagined

COVID-19 Emergency Response for Migrant Education

For the educators working in Migrant Learning Centers (MLCs) on the Thai-Myanmar border, teaching was already a demanding profession. Resources were already scarce. Uncertainty was already a constant.

Now, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, education as we know it is being redefined. For Education Reimagined, 64 MLC headmasters participated in a rapid assessment focusing on school readiness, home-learning support and safety in response to COVID-19. As part of the assessment, all learning center classrooms were measured to determine student capacity with social distance guidelines. Most MLCs will need to implement a rotating schedule or reallocate students in order to accommodate all students in the 2020-2021 academic year.

The upcoming academic year will look and feel completely different. New solutions, strategies and support mechanisms will be essential in helping migrant educators to navigate the “new normal” of their classrooms.
