Advancing Global Education Summary

Advancing Global Education by Janet R. Dickson

Education is one of the most fundamental prerequisites to economic growth and social stability in the world. It is also one of the most inadequately realised goals of development, with the average education of global adults remaining essentially at primary levels. Advancing Global Education is the second in a series of volumes that explores prospects for human development-how development appears to be unfolding globally and locally, how we would like it to evolve, and how better to assure that we move it in desired directions. The first volume addressed the reduction of global poverty. The third will turn to the enhancement of global health. Advancing Global Education presents the most extensive set of forecasts of global education participation and attainment levels to date-providing and exploring a massive, multi-issue database and proposing a scenario for accelerating educational attainment throughout major world regions and 183 countries.

Advancing Global Education Reviews

"A beautiful blend of data presentation and analysis for planning educational growth and its potential consequences."
-Henry M. Levin, William Heard Kilpatrick Professor of Economics and Education, Teachers College, Columbia University and Past-President of the Comparative and International Education Society

"This look at the future-the potential for human progress-based on a massive collection of data and a rigorous projections model produces instructive scenarios of both likely and ideal trends in population, education finance, and education outcomes, including attainment and gender equity. This study can serve as a valuable guide for planning and policymaking in order to enhance the benefits and avoid pitfalls of anticipated trends. The study makes a strong case that investment in education today will return positive economic and social benefits tomorrow."
-Annababette Wils and George M. Ingram, Education Policy and Data Center, Academy for Educational Development=

"This volume presents an insightful, in-depth analysis of the outlook for global education and the implications of a more highly educated population on society. This provocative text is a must read for policymakers around the world."
-Fred Swaniker, Founder and CEO, African Leadership Academy

"Advancing Global Education is a book that should be included in the library of anyone interested in issues related to social development...The book is a manifesto of the importance and the potential of education as an instrument of transformation in the global world, while presenting the reader with excellent statistical and analytical data to illustrate the educational changes brought about by globalization. This, together with a comprehensive bibliography and disaggregated country data sets, justifies this book's presence on the shelf of very library. It is a work to be read repeatedly and continuously consulted."
--International Review of Education (2010) 56:479-511
