Education lessons for Egypt

Pearson Education's report "The Learning Curve" helps identify the key factors which drive improved educational outcomes.
Pearson Education | 15.01.2013
Pearson is today publishing The Learning Curve: a new landmark report designed to help policymakers, school leaders and academics identify the key factors which drive improved educational outcomes.

The report holds special significance for North African countries looking to reform their education systems in the wake of social, economic and political upheaval.

The report and accompanying website hold answers for governments struggling to implement effective educational policy, and help improve the overall standard of living of their populations.

Christine Ozden, President of Pearson’s Middle East, Africa and Caribbean division said at the region’s launch of the Learning Curve:

“This report shows there is a link between personal and national income and a country’s education standards, emphasising just how important it is to get an education system right. We hope North African countries harness the Learning Curve findings in their policy decisions, as the report holds qualitative research and data that demonstrates what works in education, what doesn’t and most importantly, why”.

Egypt’s education input and output indicators can be viewed by visiting http://thelearningcurve.pearson.com/country-profiles/egypt. Socio economic indicators are also listed to demonstrate the effect these indicators have on the daily life and well-being of Egyptians. Key information listed on the site includes:
• Egypt’s public expenditure on education as a percentage of total government expenditure is 11.93%;
• the country’s overall PISA grade for reading, maths and science is 8 and;
• Egypt’s GDP per capita is US$6,010.
