Access to education is a right, not a privilege and the Global Partnership is striving to ensure that this right is protected for children across the world. Access to education is not a privilege, it’s a right. And yet, 61 million children are not in school, most of them girls.

Why education is a right?
This means that all human rights apply to everyone. International human rights law guarantees the right to education. Both individuals and society benefit from the right to education. It is fundamental for human, social, and economic development and a key element to achieving lasting peace and sustainable development.
