Education Sole Response to Militant Violence – France’s Macron

(Reuters) – Education is the sole response to the global rise of religious and political extremism, French President Emmanuel Macron told a conference in Senegal on Friday where he pledged 200 million euros ($248 million) to support an international education fund.

Macron was attending a financing conference of the Global Partnership for Education, which seeks to ensure access to classrooms for 870 million children in 65 developing countries.

“The risk of terrorism that we have lived through that convinces children that their future is war … the risk of seeing actual human bombs continue to deploy in our societies, there’s only one answer,” he said.
