The US Chapter of the Global Campaign for Education, in partnership with Save the Children and RESULTS Educational Fund, has put together a stellar panel of education experts to speak about the need for quality early childhood education here in the US and around the world. Save the Children’s Judie Jerald will be speaking about the value of early childhood education programs here in the US. Carol Bellamy of the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) will be speaking about the value of global basic education and GPE’s role in filling the access gap in education in developing countries.
