Education is a right, not a privilege. RESULTS supports programs and policies that not only get children in school, but ensure they learn once they reach the classroom. The pandemic has dealt a major blow to education globally, particularly in countries already facing the consequences of decades of colonialism, resource extraction, and unjust global lending policies.
In 2021, RESULTS is pushing Congress and the new administration to make a $1 billion, multiyear commitment to the Global Partnership for Education, which is supporting more than 80 countries to transform education for over a billion girls and boys.
We celebrated COVID relief successes and looked at the 2021 campaigns on global education and nutrition. We learned about the appropriations process and tools available to us. We took action together online and prepared for taking deeper action with congressional staff.
Every year, Congress decides how to spend the money in the U.S. federal budget. RESULTS urges our lawmakers to support issues that build the foundation to end poverty – health, education, and economic opportunity. These are memos you can use to make FY22 requests of your members of Congress.
Dig deeper into our upcoming global education campaign – and learn more about why the Global Partnership for Education is a sound investment – in this first installation of our monthly issue briefings. Review the recording of the webinar and the accompanying slide deck.
