Ensuring educators and students have the resources they need is an investment in our future. Promoting education sets the stage for higher lifetime earning potential for individuals; stronger, more empathetic communities; and a safer, more peaceful world.  

According to the National Center on Educational Statistics, the increasing course completion rates and high school graduation rates in the United States indicate good news. But, unfortunately, many children (and adults) around the world still struggle to reach their full potential due to barriers in education including tuition, the cost of books and supplies, extracurricular fees, and lack of access to technology resources.
