Hello everyone!
Cecilia van Wijk (she/her)
17:21
Hi Karyne!
Victoria Wilscam
17:32
Hey Karyne!
Betsy Skipp
18:20
the 305 in the room, good luck Texans
Devin McClendon
21:47
Good Evening everyone
Rayna Castillo
22:37
Which grades are considered lower secondary vs upper secondary?
Hwa Young Lee
23:11
@Rayna, lower=middle school, upper=high school
Victoria Wilscam
23:29
@Rayna I assume lower secondary are two year institutions vs. university/private college?
Betsy Skipp
25:03
conflict and war zones are a factor
Betsy Skipp
34:00
is there data on migration/ children that end up in refugee camps or “ interment “ camps
Hwa Young Lee
34:16
What is a "basic story"?
Karyne Bury
35:02
Is our focus for the 59 million enrollment or completion? I imagine the latter is priority. Children would need a basic education, to a level where they can contribute to their country’s economic development and future stability
Sarah Izabel
35:17
What are we doing nationally? In VA the number of high schoolers has been decreasing and colleges (At least VCU is) are working to help keep students in school so they have students coming into college, etc. Independent of their reasoning they may be good partners for reaching out to legislatives since they already have close conversations with them. Specially state schools
Karyne Bury
36:20
To reconfirm, is it only 20 percent of the 59 million children out of school from countries in conflict or crisis?
Karyne Bury
36:55
so 80 percent are out for “other reasons” (economic factors, lack of access, lack of infrastructure or teachers? do we know what these factors are?)
Betsy Skipp
37:12
I imagine that health , stunting, is a major factor of ability to learn
Lanie Dougherty
38:34
@karyne - 20% of the worlds children are in crisis or conflict settings, but that 20% is half of the 59 million kids out of school
Karyne Bury
39:20
Much clearer, thanks @Lanie
Lanie Dougherty
40:09
of course!
Mary Thorp
42:54
Who's looking at what we have right now as access to fulfilling this intention? We are never going "back" to what was here before. Where is the innovation possible?"Create a new model that makes the current model obsolete." Buckminster Fuller
Betsy Skipp
43:03
0-5 are the most important years do our efforts support that age range?
Victoria Wilscam
44:04
I gotta take off - thank you so much for your service and for the information, I will be bringing the information to my local group this Saturday! If it's possible, i'd love to have a summary of this sent to email...! Thanks again guys, have a good night
Mary Thorp
44:05
Does what you're talking about fit into being part of a regenerative solution?
Karyne Bury
44:49
Is there a percentage of the Global Fund that could be used for investments in the “Human Capital Index” ?
Ken Patterson (he/him)
45:07
we are recording this and will have it available tomorrow
Ken Patterson (he/him)
45:24
You’ll find it here: https://results.org/volunteers/training-webinars/
Karyne Bury
46:29
“Human Capital Index” is tied to both health and education
Ken Patterson (he/him)
46:50
Is there a resource we can share that articulates the value of education?
Betsy Skipp
49:42
aren’t there any Latin American countries, Caribbean etc.?
Cecilia van Wijk (she/her)
50:29
they rebranded! I noticed when I went to their website last week 😲
Betsy Skipp
52:17

Allison Gallaher

The UK and Kenya
Cecilia van Wijk (she/her)
01:05:01
yay Kenya! <3
Tim Kropp
01:05:11
Great presentation, thanks!
Carol Kraege
01:06:14
how does GPE evaluate the quality of education that a recipient country receives?
Cecilia van Wijk (she/her)
01:06:41
I wonder if Malala being in the UK has contributed to their leadership on education and girls' education specifically
Hwa Young Lee
01:07:08
@Cecilia, there's something beautiful about that
Cecilia van Wijk (she/her)
01:07:42
yes! I love her
Ken Patterson (he/him)
01:08:12
Feel free to add questions here
Lanie Dougherty
01:08:24
What other policy measures have been used for global education and how would GPE fill gaps in these former policies?
Eugene Martin
01:08:26
Is there a particular nation that serves as a good example of how GPE has improved education, both in terms of enrollments and educational outcomes ?
Helen Henry
01:09:09
How many countries currently have GPE "grants?"
Martin White
01:09:15
What does GPE do to improve the quality of teachers?
Ken Patterson (he/him)
01:09:33
Here is a map of where GPE works: https://www.globalpartnership.org/where-we-work/partner-countries
Eugene Martin
01:09:45
Zambia is the very nation that I myself was considering as an example !
Ken Patterson (he/him)
01:10:02
Some Central and South American countries, but a lot in Africa and Southeast Asia
Hwa Young Lee
01:10:29
Seriously?
Betsy Skipp
01:11:42
Karyne, at least Haiti is on there map
Betsy Skipp
01:13:00
we can also use this as a security issue- and in country security
Cecilia van Wijk (she/her)
01:15:33
access to menstrual products keeps girls from going to school
Hwa Young Lee
01:16:17
GPE was part of an initiative that got Yemeni teachers paid after two years of nothing
Eugene Martin
01:16:49
Another issue is trained teachers who leave their countries to work in other nations with higher salaries ...a brain drain on the less wealthy nations.
Lanie Dougherty
01:18:41
Thanks John! That was greatly helpful talking points for congress and education policies that exist / have hindered this before.
Cecilia van Wijk (she/her)
01:19:39
yes, I appreciated the different contexts/angles that you provided, John, that we can use to discuss the importance of education. many ways to make the case for this critical funding
Roger Hudson
01:19:48
How does timing of approps process match up with pledging opportunity?

Leslye Heilig
