The Covid-19 pandemic has pushed many countries to seek solutions to provide quality distance education to all students. Some have used traditional media, such as TV and radio, while others have used more contemporary methods such as online classrooms and other online platforms. This variance in approaches has sharpened the divide for access to education among countries as well as among gender. While some countries have been able to provide education using sophisticated technology, children are experiencing the results of a massive digital divide in others. As a result, global crises are often followed by gender gaps in education, causing middle-and-lower income countries to fall short in their progress towards achieving gender equality in education.
