As we are planning to enter the COVID-19 recovery phase, it will be critical to reflect on the role of educational systems and particularly education in fostering resilient societies. It is apparent and well-understood that the COVID-19 pandemic is of a world-wide concern. The pandemic has occupied attention of individuals, communities and governments; it has been guiding policy-makers decisions on all levels. International agencies, national governments, local government and public services have all been faced with the need to adapt to the crisis situation. Indeed, academic institutes needed to do their best in the new unpredictable reality. In this context, the importance of collaborations between educational institutions and private sector, which could contribute to the education considerably in these extreme conditions, increased during the COVID-19 pandemic. The stakeholders like school administrations (FME, NUC, NCCE, NBTE, TESCOM, UBEC, SUBEB, LIE, Vice Chancellors, Provosts, Rectors, Principals, Head Teachers etc.) need urgent response to take different supporting activities with respect to the education system to survive in the post-COVID-19.
