Congratulations to the University of Montana on their recent multi-million dollar donation ("University of Montana receives $10 million donation" by Keilla Szpaller, Missoulian, Oct. 13).
They invested in the education department, which will pay dividends on into the future. Like the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) helping countries to educate all children.
This is a big deal, with 263 million children and youth out of school in our world. Like the University of Montana, this investment will pay dividends in our world with less conflict, better health, higher earnings and lower birth rates.
We can help by asking our senators and representative to cosponsor the current resolution to back the GPE’s work. It is H. Res. 466 in the House, and S. Res. 286 in the Senate. The importance of education will be shown in the dividends paid in the future peace and prosperity of our world.
