IX NIS International Research-to-Practice Conference, 26-27 October 2017: Keynote Speech

Returns to Investment in Education

Returns to investment in education based on human capital theory have been estimated systematically since the 1950s. The latest compilations show that the average global rate of return to schooling is 10 percent a year and very stable over decades. The private returns to schooling are highest at the university level, while social returns to primary schooling remain high. Women continue to experience higher average rates of return to schooling, showing that girls’ education is a priority. At the same time, automation implies a race between education and technology. In most developing countries, education systems are not providing workers with the skills necessary to realize the high returns to schooling, giving rise to growing skill premiums in much of the world. There is a need to focus policy on skills, equity and finance.
