Global Campaign for Education

The Global Campaign for Education (GCE), founded in 1999, brings together major nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and teachers’ unions in more than 120 countries. GCE promotes access to education as a basic human right and mobilizes public pressure to create the political will for governments and other leaders in the international community to fulfill their promises to provide a free, quality public education for all children.

NEA is an active member of the U.S. Chapter of the Global Campaign for Education, a broad-based coalition of more than 70 non-governmental and religious organizations, teachers unions, foundations and child advocates to ensuring universal access to a quality education.

Global Action Week (GAW) is an annual worldwide campaign on Education for All (EFA) to raise the awareness of the urgent need to provide quality education for all children, youth and adults. Each year, GAW focuses on one of the EFA goals to adapt to policy changes nationally, and works mobilizing additional political and financial support internationally for the same cause.
