The possibility of lifting 171 million people out of poverty is astounding. (“Local efforts can ensure that low-income students, here and worldwide, stay in school” by Linwood Carlson and Bob Dickerson, RC, June 11, 2014) No wonder 81 members of Congress signed a letter asking President Obama to pledge $250 million to the Global Partnership for Education to help make this happen. That pledge will inspire other donors to join in changing the world in a peaceful way. Why not add your voice and call the President (202-456-1111), requesting he announce this pledge immediately. Millions of children will be glad you did!
