Enter 2022 fourth annual global Blog Writing Competition, co-sponsored by the World Bank Group and the Financial Times! It is looking for your most inventive ideas, high-quality writing, and innovative solutions that would strengthen education going forward.

Almost all schools had to close for months due to the Covid pandemic.  During this time students and teachers discovered that education was suddenly possible only through remote learning. In many places schools have moved to reopen, sometimes through a combination of face-to-face classes and learning from home.

Everyone is now at some stage of getting back to normal. But the real question after this pandemic is: “What lessons have we learned to improve teaching and learning?”


  • aged 16 to 19
  • currently enrolled in high school

How to participate

Write a blog in the following question:

What insights from your experience during the COVID-19 pandemic do you think would improve education and learning? What should educators and policymakers do differently, including by leveraging technology and changing teaching methods?
