Education bill’s passage helps kids

To the Editor:
Great news: the READ Act was signed into law. This legislation that was called the Education for All in past years, focuses America’s efforts to help all children in our world to get an education. With 263 million children and youth not in school, there is plenty of work to do. The dividends from education are higher earnings, better health, lower birth rates, and less conflict. Our calls and letters helped to pass this legislation, which supports the Global Partnership for Education, targeting getting 25 million more children in school over the next three years. Imagine the voices of 25 million cheering children!
