Praise for the Liberals on global education money

By Letter to the Editor on January 30, 2018.

Full kudos goes to the Trudeau Liberals for their recent pledge to the global Partnership for Education of $180million over three years. This couldn’t have come at a better time, with U.S. president Trump’s recent slashing of two-thirds of America’s funding to the United Nations agency that runs schools for Palestinian children. Education, especially for girls, is critical for improving lives in the developing world.

Canada still lags behind all other developed nations in terms of this kind of funding, but this new investment increases hope for a new direction for the Liberals and that we will begin carrying our fair share.
