Letter: Educating every child good for everyone

Jul 26, 2017

Congratulations to the Mukilteo School Board for adopting an equity policy, which really contributes to the success of every student (“School board adopts equity policy after years of study,” Nicholas Johnson, July 19).

On a larger scale, the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) has been working to make sure every child has an opportunity to have an education, in a world where 263 million children and youth are out of school.

America has supported this multinational group since 2011. But with many proposed cuts, our representatives need to hear how important education is in our world. With education comes better health, higher earnings, lower birth rates and less conflict – truly a great payoff on our investment.

Each of us can join in this important work by asking our representatives and senators to support a bold pledge to the GPE. Your call or letter can help make all the difference to millions of children.
