Using Tech to Invest in Education

Globally, we – governments, private sector, families, individuals – spend more than $5.6 trillion a year on education and training. Countries spend 5 percent of GDP on education or 20 percent of their national budget. Education employs about five percent of the labor force. Global average cost per child for full course of schooling, including pre-primary education is 5,806.6 USD.

Nature and Context

There is a definite economic loss of developing countries due to the lack of population with secondary education. The value of human capital – the share of human capital in total wealth – is 62 percent.  That’s four times the value of produced capital and 15 times the value of natural capital, meaning countries lose out economically when they don't invest in education.
