Education Systems Around The World Are Failing To Prepare Students For The Workforce: Survey

Globally, education is failing to keep pace with rapidly changing economies, and is not preparing students for the workforce, according to members of the education community around the world.

The sentiments come from a new survey, “Connecting Education to the Real World,” being released today at the World Innovation Summit for Education in Doha, Qatar. The summit unites thousands of experts and innovators across global sectors to foster collaboration and innovation in education.

The study, conducted by Gallup, is based on responses from 149 countries, across 1,550 members of the WISE community – teachers, students, recent graduates, education policymakers, and members of the private sector connected with WISE on education reform issues. Survey results were previewed exclusively for RealClearEducation.
