250 million. According to a new UNESCO report, that's how many children were out of school in 2022, the number rising by 6 million from the previous year. Utterly unacceptable.
The READ Act Reauthorization of 2023 seeks to address this global education injustice. The READ Act was introduced in the House and Senate (H.R.681, S.41). It reauthorizes the original 2017 READ Act which governs U.S. global education policies and ensures equitable access to quality education for all vulnerable children. Ultimately, the READ Act helps move us toward achieving key global education goals. It builds strong partnerships. It changes lives.
Take Action in the media. Let your community know how we are failing many of the world's children and ask your members of Congress to do something about it. Name your senators and representative in your letter to the editor and ask them to co-sponsor the READ Act today.
