The outbreak of COVID-19, resulted in societies’ chaos and economies’ turbulence, necessitating countries’ collective action to address the impacted socio-economic devastation, and the pre-knowledge of the powerful forces, that make the school reforms a reality.

The pandemic has affected educational systems globally, leading to closures of schools, universities and colleges, around the world, affecting approximately 1.7 billion students. According to the UNICEF about 153 countries are implementing nationwide closures and 24 are implementing local closures, impacting almost 99% of the world's student population. Not only students, but also teachers, and families, have far-reaching economic and societal consequences, shedding light on various social and economic issues. 

In the Post Covid-19 education system, distance learning will transfer education from physical classrooms to virtual learning platforms. It is predicted that, COVID-19 will change the current way of life, as it will be defined as: “before COVID-19” and “after COVID-19”. This suggests that, some aspects of schooling, might not be the same way as before and education needs to change, to prepare young learners for what the future is holding for them. According to the World Economic Forum, 65% of primary-school children today will be working in job types that do not exist yet.
