Latin America - Fund what is fair: Right to education campaign for Latin America and the Caribbean
The Latin American Campaign for the Right to Education has launched this week a campaign for the correct financing of Sustainable Development Goal 4 on the occasion of the 72nd United Nations General Assembly. Fe y Alegría, a movement present in 22 countries of popular education and social promotion, 17 of them in Latin America and the Caribbean, joins this mobilization to underscore the importance of tax justice for guaranteeing the human right to education. FyA expresses its commitment to free, inclusive public education as a fundamental human right and demands that States fulfil their responsibility as guarantors of the right to quality education for all. The statement of support for this campaign summarizes the four main demands of the campaign, including full free public education and a minimum of 6% of GDP in education and a minimum of 20% of public budget executed in education.
