This policy brief focuses on the significance of care work in the global economy and the complexities of measuring its value, given its unpaid, invisible facets and the gendered nature of these forms of work. We seek to highlight the challenges educational professionals currently face and emphasize how the dynamics of paid and unpaid care work shape prominent issues in the sector. It targets audiences in national level education unions and their members, international policy makers, as well as state and non-state organizations advocating for gender equality, quality education and decent work across the world.
