Education May Never Be the Same After the COVID-19 Pandemic. The pandemic fostered significant growth among online learning communities. Following this pandemic school education changed profoundly. The European Commission calls for the mobilization and participation of all in shaping the futures of education. There are no acceptable ready-made solutions, technological or otherwise in Education, and it is evident that schools cannot return to the world as it was before this pandemic or even the recent outbreak of the Ukrainian war. At the moment, education faces choices and decisions that will redefine the futures of education. COVID-19 radically reshaped our world and the educational infrastructures globally. Education stakeholders cannot afford to passively sit back. Now is the time for making intelligent decisions and take collective actions for the sake of education, teachers and students.
