British Archbishop launches education initiative

Speaking in New York alongside British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and former US President Bill Clinton, Dr Sentamu said: “We are half way to the 2015 MDG targets and yet 75 million children remain out of school completely. Twice as many, mostly girls, go for a short while but then drop out.

"We may think we are making progress on education but the facts are that too many children around the world are receiving inadequate education and in many cases, no education at all.

"This is a scandal for many reasons. If we do not educate our children, what hope can there be for the future? But it is also a scandal because it shows just how wrong our priorities have become.”
