Sparking economic progress through education
Through Q&As with luminaries in a number of sectors across the world, interviews aim to surface insights for policy makers, business leaders and other stakeholders as they consider actions to improve the quality of, and access to, education, to fortify their country’s economic, social and geopolitical fabric.
The series is supported by The International Commission on Financing Global Education Opportunity, which just presented a report urging governments to expand access to education to the UN Secretary-General, Mr Ban Ki-moon, and the Commission Co-Convenors during the UN General Assembly in New York.
The report, entitled "The Learning Generation: Investing in Education for a Changing World,” underscores the importance of quality education to address the social, economic, and security challenges of our time. For more on the report please go to educationcommission.org
