Lesson Plans Supporting Education for All
By Erin Madsen on Thursday, April 8th, 2010
We are pleased to note that universal basic education was chosen as one of the National Peace Corps Association’s 2010 advocacy priorities. As part of this advocacy effort, we’re supporting the Global Campaign for Education, which is promoting the kick-off of the 1GOAL: Education for All campaign during their Global Action Week April 19-25.
We encourage you to participate in Global Action Week by taking advantage of their Lesson for All toolkit, which features a collection of lesson plans and activities that you can use to raise awareness of the global education crisis and get people involved in advocating for education for all.
If you are interested in further supporting this effort you can join our Education for All Advocates group on our Ning social networking site, where updates about activities and events will be posted regularly.
Legislation regarding Education for All will be introduced in Congress later this month, so look out for more information on how to take action in the next few weeks. If you live in the D.C. area, there will be a Capitol Hill kick-off event during the day on April 21st to mark the introduction of the Education for All Act, featuring Congresswoman Nita Lowey, actress Jessica Alba and others. Thank you for your support!
