Write to Obama about Global Education

75 million children do not have access to primary education around the globe. Part of the problem is inadequate development assistance, and another part is a failure to use the assistance we provide wisely. We need new leadership to improved and increase aid, provide better coordination, and develop new mechanisms to support the achievement of Education for All. During his campaign, President Obama pledged $2 billion for a global education fund. Now is the time for the U.S. to realize this vision and lead the world in achieving the Education for All goals agreed to by over 180 nations by creating an effective Global Fund for Education. We have a real opportunity for bold action to stimulate real change.

Grab the opportunity! Write to President Obama and ask him to lead an effort to establish a multilateral Global Fund for Education.
