As a member of RESULTS here in Tacoma, we meet and discuss many issues. One of the most important and compelling for me is the lack of basic primary education in many countries. Fifty-seven million primary school-aged children are not in school worldwide. I feel sad to think what that means to their personal futures and the future of their countries.
The Education For All Act of 2013, introduced in U.S. Congress by Reps. Nita Lowey, D-N.Y., and Dave Reichert, R-Auburn, would add impetus to remedy this problem. We at RESULTS are very thankful for this and urge all to thank and support their representatives in our area – Derek Kilmer, Denny Heck, Reichert and Adam Smith – for supporting this bill.
We should all support communities of learning here and around the world.
