An initiative of the
United Nations Secretary-General.
It is time for the international community to face the fact that we have a crisis in education. We must be clear that if children are forced out of school, their governments and communities are also failing. As we approach 2015, we must have unwavering support for achieving and exceeding the global education goals we have set for ourselves. It will take relentless and uncompromising focus on the most marginalized children and countries lagging furthest behind to finish the job. But we cannot stop until every child, youth and adult has the opportunity to go to school, learn and contribute to society. When we put education first, we see an end to wasted
potential – we unleash the human spirit.
