Dear Santa Monica Mirror:
Before this Congress heads home at the end of the year, they have a chance to make a lasting difference in the lives of millions of children.
As Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala reminds us, “One child, one teacher, one pen and one book can change the world.” But right now a staggering 263 million children and youth around the world are still out of school.
The bipartisan Education for All Act (S. 3256/H.R. 4481) will enable the U.S. to do its part to help tackle this crisis. The House of Representatives came together to pass this bill earlier in the fall, and now it’s the Senate’s turn to do the same.
On the heels of a divisive election, this is Congress’ change to come together in support of a brighter future.
