Universal Education for All. This is the second of eight Millennium Development Goals made by the United Nations in the most broadly supported, comprehensive and specific development goals the world has ever agreed upon.  It’s big. It’s important. It impacts us all. Lack of education contributes to world instability, inability to make informed decisions, spread of HIV, inability to develop full potential and lead productive, creative lives in accord with interest, among others.

After making great strides in this effort around the world in the past decade, progress has slowed down. There are still about 57 million primary aged children out of school. Conflict, gender policies, natural disasters, poverty, and location are some factors keeping children out of school.

The Campaign for Global Education, United States Chapter offers resources including the Lesson For All, a free series of units focusing on the fact that education is a human right, but one that nearly 132 million children worldwide do not enjoy. Each Lesson is mapped to Global Competence Matrix and the Common Core State Standards.

Find out more about these resources, the session of the Global Education Conference runs Monday, Nov. 18th  at 7:00pm GMT -6 during the free and online Global Education Conference. Find the time in your location here.
