Policy Reports

All My Friends Need Teachers

Send My Friend to School is calling for the UK Government to launch a new global teacher strategy and work with international partners to recruit and train 1.8 million new teachers in low- and lower-middle income countries. Investing in qualified, well-trained, and well-resourced teachers is one of the greatest investments we can make in children’s futures and is key to unlocking a quality, inclusive education for all children.

The Right Climate to Learn

In 2021, the UK Government hosted the international climate summit, the Conference of the Parties 26 (COP26), where world leaders convened to discuss action on tackling the climate emergency. The Prime Minister has made clear that providing 12 years of quality education is a top priority, especially for girls, who are denied this right every day.

Turning the tide on the global education emergency

In 2021, the year of the UK’s G7 Presidency, co-hosting of the GPE replenishment, and hosting COP26. We looked at how the UK should lead others to turn the tide on the global education emergency.

Keep All My Friends Learning

A quality education is critical to children’s safety, opportunities and ability to reach their potential. However, education around the world, and the hope that it brings, is facing a generation-defining emergency: COVID-19.
