Global Partnership for Education: Ask Congress to Cosponsor the GPE Resolution
Engage the Audience: I recently read the case for investment for the Global Partnership for Education (GPE). It made me realize how fortunate we are to have access to quality education from pre-school through college.
State the Problem: I’ve learned that 263 million children and youth around the globe who should be in school are not. I imagine what they all could achieve for themselves, their nations, and the world if they all had the opportunity to become educated as we do.
Inform on a Solution: The Global Partnership for Education (GPE) is working to give more children the education they deserve. From 2018 to 2020, GPE plans to get over 25 million additional kids in the classroom for the first time, and improve the quality of learning and the school experience for millions of others. But this must be a global effort and U.S. support will be critical to leveraging additional leadership from other countries.
Call to Action: We know the senator/representative understands the power of education.
HOUSE Request: Will you cosponsor the bipartisan Global Partnership for Education Resolution led by Representatives Dave Reichert (R-WA) and Nita Lowey (D-NY) in support of the GPE replenishment?
SENATE Request: Will you cosponsor the bipartisan Global Partnership for Education Resolution led by Senator Booker (D-NJ) in support of the GPE replenishment?
