“It should break all of our hearts that hundreds of millions of children, in many parts of the world, are denied the opportunity to learn to read.” Julia Gillard, Chair, Global Partnership for Education

“If parents and teachers establish relationships based on trust, schools can rely on parents as valuable partners in the cognitive and socio-emotional education of their students.” Andreas Schleicher, Director for Education and Skills, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development

“Governments want all students to succeed on an intellectually challenging curriculum because their future quality of life, including their income, employment opportunities, and civic contributions are now so dependent on their educational success.” Viviane Robinson, Distinguished Professor, University of Auckland
