The Global Campaign for Education-US has partnered with coalition member A World at School and youth around the world in their quest to produce the largest petition in history. Addressed to world leaders, it will be delivered to U.N. Secretary Ban Ki-moon in September and is in support of ensuring a quality education for all out-of-school children before the end of 2015.
We, the world's youth, teachers, parents and global citizens appeal to our governments to keep their promise, made at the United Nations in 2000, to ensure all out-of-school children gain their right to education before the end of 2015.
We are standing up to bring an end to the barriers preventing girls and boys from going to school, including forced work and early marriage, conflict and attacks on schools, exploitation and discrimination. All children deserve the opportunity to learn and achieve their potential.
We are #UpForSchool.
