    Global Action Week: Equal Right, Equal Opportunity
    Sunday, 4 May, 2014

    An estimated 1 billion people live with a disability – comprising approximately 15% of the global population. It is estimated that 93 million of these are children – or 1 in 20 of those aged up to 14 years of age – living with a moderate or severe disability. In most low- and middle-income countries, children with disabilities are more likely to be out of school than any other group of children; even if they do attend school, children living with disabilities are often more likely to drop out and leave school early. In some countries, having a disability can more than double the chance of a child not being in school, compared to their non-disabled peers.

    Global Campaign for Education's Global Action Week on "Equal Right, Equal Opportunity: Education and Disability" will run 4-10 May 2014.

    Unite for Quality Education Conference
    Montreal, Canada
    Monday, 26 May, 2014

    On 4 October 2013, Education International (EI) launched its Global Action Year in Paris and New York. The theme for EI’s mobilisation initiative is “Unite for Quality Education – Better Education for a Better World.”

    The three pillars of the Unite for Quality Education campaign are:
    • universal and free access to quality teaching;
    • modern teaching tools and resources; and
    • supportive and safe environments for teaching and learning

    The Unite for Quality Education Conference will provide an opportunity for EI member organisations, and organisations with a similar commitment to quality education, such as the Global Campaign for Education (GCE) and other civil society organisations, NGOs, the OECD, UNESCO and the Global Education First Initiative (GEFI), to join forces in support of quality education for all. The conference is organized by EI in collaboration with UNESCO and GEFI.
