New BEC website! 

We are delighted to announce the arrival of our brand new website. The new site went live on August 23rd and the URL is

We have four main goals for the site: 1) provide clear and compelling information to policy makers, 2) inform current BEC members of emergent research and events, 3) appeal to and connect with prospective members, and 4) increase awareness among the general public about the importance of international basic education.

How to engage: The new website is mobile-friendly! It includes integrated social media buttons for Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin to foster improved communication with members. The news and events page will be continuously refreshed with government relations updates, the latest international education articles from around the web, and announcements of upcoming events. The Success Stories blog and this Impact page illustrate how our members are effecting real change for children around the world. 

We are incredibly appreciative of everyone who contributed to the development of this site. It has been a highly collaborative effort and we have enjoyed working with all of our members to source the beautiful photos and compelling stories that are so appealing to visitors. We look forward to ongoing collaboration to ensure this resource remains responsive and leverages our best evidence. We strive to tell a collective story, to motivate policy-makers and other champions in support of international basic education. 

We encourage you all to explore the site and share it widely. The broader our reach, the greater our momentum!
