The National Coalition on the Education Emergency is a group of individuals, organisations and networks across the country which have come together to ‘resume and renew’ school education. The NCEE working groups produce research studies, curricular resources, guidelines to support governments, teachers, parents and communities to address the Education Emergency.



Three working groups have been set up after the first consultation of the Coalition, on 16th July 2021, to take the work of the coalition forward. If you would like more information or would like to join our efforts, e-mail us at

The Working group on “Education support to communities” is working on producing a compilation of NGO interventions providing meaningful learning opportunities to students during COVID. The template for compiling the intervention experiences is available here.  This group has created a policy brief laying out principles for education support, developed/curated  simple resources with ideas and activities for teachers and for parents (to aid caregivers in engaging with children and support their learning), etc.

The Working Group on Social Mobilization” organizes meetings with interested individuals and groups in different states to build a larger discourse on the education emergency, and create social pressure across the country for careful/phased school opening.  The group organizes translations of materials including the note on education emergency into other languages to reach the message to parents, worker groups, communities. The group is also aiming to create small/simple video messages, posters for a wider audience.

The Working Group on Research has created a compendium of research studies; prepared a policy tracker tool comparing states/ districts on their actions/decisions relating to school education. The group is conducting rapid surveys to collect data from the ground
