U.S. Government Strategy on International Basic Education
The goal of the U.S. Government Strategy on International Basic Education for Fiscal Years 2019 - 2023 (the Strategy) is to achieve a world where education systems in partner countries enable all individuals to acquire the education and skills needed to be productive members of society. To accomplish this goal, the U.S. Government has two principal objectives:
1. Improve learning outcomes; and
2. Expand access to quality basic education for all, particularly marginalized and vulnerable populations.
The U.S. Government recognizes that its investments in international education serve as a force multiplier for all of its work in international development. Strengthening education systems in developing countries advances U.S. foreign policy goals, promotes U.S. and international security, and helps accelerate economic growth at home and abroad.
