If you like the language of numbers ( I bet qualitative researchers do ) then the infographic below will be of great interest to you. It features some interesting facts about the state of education in the world like the number of students, number of teacher in pre-k to high school...etc. I am sharing with you this infographic first because the data it contains is really amazing and second because this work has been realized by Microsoft Education which is a reliable source .
Here are some of the things that stuck out for me from this graphic :
- 1.23 billion students in pre-kindergarten to highschool
- 170 million students in higher education
- 35 million students in just pre-kindergarten through grade 8
- 14.8 million in grades 9 to 12
