Promoting quality education for all.

Recommendations for the U.S. Government Strategy Draft on International Basic Education

On July 18, 2018, USAID released a draft of the new U.S. Government Strategy on International Basic Education and opened up a window for feedback from the public. Global Campaign for Education-US (GCE-US) and our coalition partners collaborated to propose recommendations for the U.S. Government International Education Strategy, which outlines plans for the implementation of the READ Act.

Global Campaign for Education-US applauds USAID and all government agencies involved in the development of the whole of government education strategy. In particular, we applaud the focus on inclusion, specifically for children with disabilities, girls and marginalized groups, the references to alignment and coordination with multilateral partners, the focus on education in conflict and crisis settings, the inclusion of early childhood education, and the commitment to data and reporting. GCE-US has outlined key points from the U.S. Government Strategy on International Basic Education and incorporated our topline recommendations for the whole of U.S. Government Strategy on International Basic Education. Please view a full summary of GCE-US recommendations here
