Education Quality & Economic Growth
Our Students, Our Future
The impact of underachieving education systems has been the focus of attention of researchers for many years. Improving learning by 10%, according to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), can raise personal earnings significantly and if achieved across a whole country, will lead to vast improvements in GDP. Research shows that improved education not only leads to improved GDP, but better social cohesion and eventually to a virtuous circle of improved living and other standards.
With the stakes so high, Promethean is proud to reach over a million teachers and 100 million students every year. Through measured improvements of between 10 and 20% in student achievement using Promethean technologies (Marzano 2009, 2010), Promethean has significantly added to the economic and social wealth of the planet.
