The condition of education in most parts of the world is a problem that must be addressed. In some developing countries such as India and Brazil, this is becoming more critical, because of some progress and reading indexes, the ability to understand logic and textualism that is still far from what is desired in world expectations.
Investing in education is important because it is directly related to a country’s ability to invest in the industry – because it will have a skilled workforce to handle complex projects. In addition, research still shows that injecting money into education is to read more quality of life in the future.
Global resources for Latin America and Africa are low. In these places only occur from 3% or less of the GDP of each country. Meanwhile, the average of developed countries is 5% or more.
How do you invest in education?
Although it is estimated that investing in the education sector, it is necessary to consider what strategies should be adopted so that they are actually clearly concretized so that the desired results can be adequate.
In Latin America, for example, out of 111 million school-aged children and adolescents, nearly 14 million did not even attend this formal education environment – a fact that emerged in the 2014 dropout survey. Some even attended elementary school (up to grade 8 ) without having the ability to interpret texts or do the most basic mathematical operations. This not only limits the abilities you have in the job market but in life as a whole – How will you calculate taxes?
How can you differentiate things or participate in the national and political context of the country?
In South Asia, the situation is not better even in many cases, what happened in Pakistan and Bangladesh is far worse.
Latin America has increased investment in education since 2014. UNESCO research shows that there are regions where an average of 5% of regional GDP in education is invested, an increase of 25% of the average investment rate for 2000.
The Commission, which aims to ensure that all children can have quality education by 2030, will need a plan to gradually invest in education to reach a total of $ 1.2 trillion per year by 2030.
Adaptation must occur in a gentle manner, first to guarantee basic rights and then to progress in learning methods and strategies which are considered today as a form of assimilation and the best pedagogical understanding of the subject.
Investing in education improves the quality of life
In developed countries halving fossil fuel subsidies and investing half of what is saved in education will generate $ 3 billion in capacity for the poorest 20 percent of the population. This alone will help to ensure that the majority of the population has access to problems that appeal to all citizens, which will not put them in a crisis of skilled labor – but with more world possibilities and perspectives and professional understanding.
What has been excluded from subsidies will certainly be harvested in the form of new and even more advanced technologies that do not even need this.
