School is an essential part of growing up and an important means of lifting people out of poverty and making their lives better. Did you know that in developing countries on average it costs just $1 per child per day to pay for their primary and secondary education? Although the world has made incredible progress in getting kids educated.
“The enrollment rate in primary education in developing regions increased from 83 percent to 90 percent between 2000 and 2012, and the number of children out of school has decreased from 100 million in 2000 to 60 million in 2007. After 2007 this progress stagnated and today, 59 million children around the world of primary school age are out of school.”
That is why Global Citizen is calling on the United States Government step up its efforts by asking them to:
- Adopt the Education for All Act.
- Increase funding to the Global Partnership for Education.
Help to make sure millions of kids get an education. For more information and to Sign the petition, click here.
