Global Campaign for Education 2014

Letter from the Global Campaign for Education:

As you may already be aware, the EFA-GMR team has been running an online
discussion with teachers around the world every Tuesday using Twitter.
During Global Action Week, #TeacherTuesday is being dedicated to education
and disability, and Siti, a teacher from Indonesia who works teaching
children with disabilities, will be the person answering questions at 9am
GMT, Tuesday 6 May. To take part in the discussion, please follow
@EFAreport or You can ask questions or just view the discussion. I have attached an image we will be using to advertise the
chat - please feel free to share this on your social networks.

We have now added a large number of statements for members and supporters
of the campaign to use on Twitter. We will be sharing these with the full
GCE supporter database, and we hope you can all forward these to your own
networks. These can be found here:

We have added three photo images with campaign messages which can be shared easily on Facebook - scroll down the page until after the Twitter messages. Again, please feel free to send these to your own networks

We are keen for members to share their images of Global Action Week with
us! If you want to send us your images of Global Action Week activities,
please email them to with the title of the

the email unless you want it to show as part of the description of the
