Call on world leaders to ensure education's central place in all new development goals after 2015.
On Thursday 19th September we held a tweetchat with a host of development experts for a tweetchat to discuss the transformative power of education for development. The tweetchat looked at how education underpins development and will be a great opportunity for interactive discussions around the topic. We invited people on Twitter to put their questions and views across on the subject using the #educationtransforms hashtag and our experts responded to them.
