Education for All Act does matter

Many of us want to see something positive come out of the rancor of the presidential campaign. Future global peace and development depend greatly on the education of youth in developing countries. Currently 263 million children around the world do not have access to schooling.

The U.S. Congress has made a wonderful bipartisan effort to change those numbers by supporting the Education for All Act, recently passed by the House of Representatives (H.R. 4481). I hope that the Senate will now take action on S. 3256 and show the world that the United States believes in the power of education to make a positive difference in our world.
