When COVID-19 first emerged in Pakistan, state institutions began deliberating upon and enacting a series of emergency response measures, starting with school closures across the country in March 2020. For this report, the Pak Alliance for Maths and Science (PAMS) and Zindagi Trust (ZT) spoke to public school teachers to explore their views on the state’s immediate response and their recommendations on measures to be implemented once schools reopen.

Summary: Pakistani Teachers’ Response to COVID-19

The purpose behind compiling this report is to inform the debate around the desired state response to COVID-19 by adding opinions from teachers, who remain largely absent from the public discourse. The report is not intended to represent a academic study and does not claim to be backed by a robust quantitative and qualitative survey representative of teachers.
