Discovery Education Celebrates UNESCO’s International Day of Education

Day of Education Gen

Exploring the global education revolution being powered by Discovery Education’s state-of-the-art digital curriculum resources.

Education Is A Human Right

In 2018, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed January 24 as International Day of Education, recognizing that the key to a sustainable future is inclusive and equitable education for all the people of the world, regardless of current affairs or historical context.

It’s troubling enough to consider even a single young person being denied the right of an education, yet, according to UN figures, “about 265 million children and adolescents around the world do not have the opportunity to enter or complete school” (2018).

Thus, International Day of Education is not just a celebration of the universal power of learning, but, more importantly, it is a reaffirmation of our responsibility as global citizens to ensure that each and every person receives agency through adequate education. And in the year 2020, there has never been more opportunity to do just that!

The Power of Discovery

As the global leader in standards-based digital curriculum resources for K–12 classrooms worldwide, Discovery Education is thoroughly committed to providing user-friendly, standards-aligned resources that empower young people all over the world on their personal journeys of learning, by providing educators with a rich library of resources that make coursework come to life.
