(02-11 12:20)

Former Australian prime minister, Julia Gillard, has been named to lead the Washington-based organization Global Partnership for Education.
The international initiative is made up of nearly 60 developing countries, donor governments, international organizations, teachers, the private sector and civil society groups.
In a statement announcing her position as Chair of the group's board, Gillard says she's alarmed by the recent sharp decline in donor support. --RTHK
