GBC-Education Stands #UpForSchool

The #UpForSchool petition was launched by more than 300 youth leaders to demand world leaders keep their Millennium Development Goal promise and get 58 million children into school by the end of 2015.


Every child has the right to go to school, without danger or discrimination. Help create a message no governments, no politicians or leaders can ignore. Nothing changes without pressure. Sign the #UpForSchool Petition. Act Now.


“We, the world’s youth, teachers, parents and global citizens appeal to our governments to keep their promise, made at the United Nations in 2000, to ensure all out-of-school children gain their right to education before the end of 2015.
We are standing up to bring an end to the barriers preventing girls and boys from going to school, including forced work and early marriage, conflict and attacks on schools, exploitation and discrimination. All children deserve the opportunity to learn and achieve their potential.
We are #UpForSchool.”
