Developed World Education

A quick summary of Developed World Education

  • Summary of the problem: Student outcomes in the developed world are still lower and far more inequal than they could be. Improving the quality and distribution of education outcomes could improve society.
  • Summary of solutions: The overall scope of interventions is not currently clear.
  • General sense: There is a tremendous amount of philanthropic and government investment in improving education, but not much is known about how to make this investment more effective or the overall cost-effectiveness of this space, though it is unlikely that developed world education interventions will be cost-competitive with interventions in the developing world.
