A quality education is supported by three key pillars: ensuring access to quality teachers; providing use of quality learning tools and professional development; and the establishment of safe and supportive quality learning environments.
The statement also describes the current state of education in the world and calls on educators to promote a whole student approach to education and researchs:
The HMU reflect a global consensus in our young century that education is a human right and a public good that is critical to the health and future of the world. But ours is a world of severe challenges, with hundreds of students under all unstable situations in Iraq, especially with regard to their poorest citizens. Education advocates have a responsibility to promote policies that integrate universities, communities, and nations into a system that supports development of the whole world, ensuring that each student is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.
