‘COVID-19 and Education: Equality Considerations’ – New Policy Position Paper by Equality Commission for NI

A new Policy Position Paper has recently been published by the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland, entitled ‘COVID-19 and Education: Equality Considerations’.

It sets out 12 recommendations on dealing with the equality impacts of COVID-19 now and into the future.

The policy paper, along with other related documents, can be viewed and downloaded HERE.

It is the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland’s intention to develop this work further as understanding of the impacts of the pandemic grow and they would be very grateful if you could share this information with your networks.

Please also feel free to contact Deborah Howe, Senior Policy Officer, Equality Commission for NI, via e-mail (DHowe@equalityni.org), to further discuss the recommendations.
