Yasmin Qureshi comments on Plan International UKs report into the Impact of Covid-19 on Adolescent’s Education

Yasmin Qureshi MP, Labour’s Shadow International Development Minister, commenting on Plan International UKs report into the Impact of Covid-19 on Adolescent’s Education, said:

“All over the world, education has been drastically impacted by the pandemic. Home schooling has been a particular struggle for the most marginalised, and some students have received no education at all.

“As Britain hosts the G7 and the Global Partnership for Education summits, we have an opportunity to show true leadership to support access to education.

“The Government must reverse its decision to cut the aid budget and reaffirm its commitment to spending 0.7% of national income on supporting the world’s poorest and most vulnerable.”
