Education is a critical step on the path toward new opportunities for both people and nations. But in a world where children are not getting the skills they need to live productive lives—250 million children cannot read or write, despite many having been to school—something clearly needs to change to fulfill this historic promise. Tune in to a high-stakes discussion between Finance Ministers, civil society representatives and private-sector representatives, and development partners as they explore how all stakeholders can work together to make smarter, more results-oriented investments that deliver quality education for all children and youth. The payoff? Young people who are equipped with skills for jobs, and sustained economic gains that will contribute to peace, stability, and equitable growth.
