With 53 member countries and 2.4 billion people, the Commonwealth is a powerful force for positive change. For nearly seven decades, Commonwealth states have been global leaders on trade, female empowerment, natural-resource protection and many other issues.But as the Commonwealth moves to tackle new challenges in human development, its leadership is failing to place sufficient emphasis on the most important factor of all: education. Today, some 140 million children in the Commonwealth are not in school. The Commonwealth's leaders cannot afford to fail their countries' young people by failing to invest in education.The approach, called the International Finance Facility for Education, aims to leverage countries' own investments in education with support from public and private donors.Bold action is needed if the Commonwealth's educational shortcomings are to be solved.
