( CNN) If ours was a world where every child was in school and learning, then the two of us likely would have never fulfilled. But more than ten years ago, frustrated by education targets made by the international community defined and missed, we came together to push back in a world where far too many children go without a quality education. It’s up to all of us to make sure that children around the world have access to this essential right. Today, we finally have good news.

Included in the G20 Summit Leaders’ Declaration is an agreement for more and better education financing through support for the International Finance Facility for education. With this statement, world leaders are mentioning: Our sustainable development purpose of an inclusive and quality education for all can be met. Now, with imaginative thoughts and leadership, we can deliver.

The right to an education is imperative. Far scarier than the current reality of 263 million children out of school and not discovering is the Education Commission’s( an organization developing an investment instance and financing pathway for achieving equal educational opportunity for children and youth) prediction that, by 2030, half a generation — more than 800 million children — will lack basic skills necessary to thrive in tomorrow’s economy.
