Only 51 Words but a Significant Step for Education

The G20 Leaders' Declaration in Hamburg, Germany on July 8th included a commitment to step up and improve education financing.  Now, all that is needed is commitment, innovative thinking, and leadership to deliver.  A first step for Canada is to commit $260 million to the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) replenishment (2018-2020) scheduled for the beginning of 2018.
