Stand #UpForSchool

132 innocent children killed in their classroom. Here's how we can respond: every child has the right to go to school, without danger or discrimination. Honour the children of Peshawar by helping create a message no government, politician or leader can ignore and demand that every child can go to school safely.

THE PETITION

"We, the world's youth, teachers, parents and global citizens, appeal to our governments to keep their promise, made at the United Nations in 2000, to ensure all out-of-school children gain their right to education before the end of 2015.

We are standing up to bring an end to the barriers preventing girls and boys from going to school, including forced work and early marriage, conflict and attacks on schools, exploitation and discrimination. All children deserve the opportunity to learn and achieve their potential.

We are #UpForSchool." Please sign the #UpForSchool Petition. Act Now.
