Covid-19 had generated a profound lack of interest in education. In this study, we will try to investigate the category of school staff (teachers and educators) through a street-level approach. This approach recognizes teachers and educators as members of street-level bureaucracy characterized by the use of discretion in their daily work. Thanks to informal relationship with students, teachers and educators produce a constant innovation of rules. This innovation involves students and activates policy implementation processes. The pandemic revealed contradictions and problems of the work of teachers and educators, but our premises remain solid. Teachers and educators are valuable professionals to rebuild the global community after Covid-19.
