It All Starts with Education

around the worldâEUR"from community-based programs to teacher training workshops to national

Over 100 million children, however, are still not in school. Access and quality are fundamental.

With all of these benefits in mind, the twenty organizational members of the Basic Education
Coalition created our alliance out of a belief that education is the building block for development.
Alternatively, a lack of opportunity created by the absence of education can cause despair. Many of
the rest should meet it by 2025.

A quick review of the benefits shows that basic education is essential for economic growth. The
children of educated women have higher survival rates, better health and nutrition, and are more
likely to attend and succeed in school.

Providing access to a quality education does, however, have ripple effects that matter to all of us.
We can, and must, do better. In April, the British government announced a new initiative to provide
$15 billion over the next ten years to meet the goal of Education for All. Since then, we have made
significant progress, with tens of millions of additional children receiving access to basic education,
learning to read and write, add and subtract, and develop critical thinking skills. Yet, we are falling
short in meeting the promises we have made. government has provided only about half that amount.
An adult with a primary education earns twice as much as an adult without any schooling, and a
farmer with just a few years of education is more likely to understand the causes and treatment of
crop diseases and how to introduce new farming techniques. Access to quality education is one of
the best ways to prevent child labor and trafficking in children. Basic education can transform the
lives of girls and women, providing them with a greater appreciation of their own potential and
rights as well as expanded employment opportunities. Young people with little or no education are
more than twice as likely to contract HIV as those who have completed primary education, for
example. The proportionate U.S. In southern Sudan, for example, four of the Coalition's members,
working with local NGOs and other partners, are implementing a program that will rehabilitate 290
primary schools, increase equitable access to education, improve teacher training and materials, and
also provide non-formal education for 20,000 out-of-school youth and adults.
In 2000, at a conference in Dakar, Senegal, 164 nations committed to achieving the goal of
Education for All (EFA) by 2015. In many places, children don't always go to school, stay in school,
and learn while they are there. The United States has an important role to play in providing the
resources to help countries help themselves to achieve and sustain EFA. The United States has yet
to match this vision. share of needed resources is over $1 billion per year, but the U.S. Without us,
the goal will not be met. The future of the world's children is riding on our success.

Basic education is one of the most effective preventive weapons against HIV/AIDS. Close to half of
these countries have either met, or are on track to meet, EFA by 2015. Basic education is
empowering for individuals, their families, communities, and nations. Many of these children will be
the hardest to reach because over half of them are in countries in conflict, or recovering from
conflict. Hence, basic education is a sound investment that provides economic, health, societal, and
civic returns that will last for generations.. An educated citizenry that is capable of making informed
decisions, voicing opinions, and holding elected officials responsible is essential for democracy to
survive and flourish.

including insufficient resources, lack of political will, and numerous barriers to getting and keeping
childrenâEUR"particularly girlsâEUR"in school. Finally, basic education promotes
democratization and stability
