Malala calls on World leaders to invest in books, not bullets

OSLO: Speaking at the Oslo Education Summit in, Norway, the 17-year-old Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai said, every child deserves access to 12 years of free education.


“The poorest girls get just three years of schooling because of a lack of will and vision by our governments,” Malala said ahead of her Tuesday speech. “This is unacceptable.”

In a paper published by the Malala Fund called Beyond Basics, Malala calls on low- and middle-income countries to commit a minimum of 20 percent of their national budgets to education, compared to the current average of 15 percent.
