Webinar: Global Education Basics: Where are we now, and what's next?

February 21, 2014
by Allison Grossman, Senior Legislative Associate

This spring, RESULTS volunteers will turn our attention toward this June's pledging conference for the Global Partnership for Education, the world's only multilateral partnership exclusively devoted to improving the provision of quality basic education. With 57 million primary school-aged children still out of school and 250 million children failing to learn even basic reading, writing, and numeracy skills, we are off track to achieve quality education of all. The June conference is a critical moment for the global community to come together and ensure that the Global Partnership has the funding it needs to reach its goals for children over the next four years, setting us on the right track to get all kids into school and learning.

This webinar sets the stage for our upcoming campaign work by reviewing progress to date toward global quality education, providing an overview of what the Global Partnership for Education is and how it operates, and discussing why investment in the Global Partnership is the best way to achieve education for all. You can find the power point used during the webinar here, and see the recording of the entire webinar below.
