The Big Change: Investing in the Educational Environment of the Future
4 June 2021

The 21st century economy is a knowledge economy. According to the World Bank studies, human capital accounts for 10% to 30% of the difference in per capita GDP between countries. The quality of school education plays an important role in its development. Increasing the educational results of students in the long run gives an increase in GDP by 0.2-0.7%, depending on the scenario. Thus, improving the efficiency of school education creates direct prerequisites for economic growth. In 2021 a large-scale program of building new schools was launched in Russia. By 2024 at least 1,300 modern schools for 1 million places will be created with the support of VEB. This is not just an infrastructural project: the creation of a modern educational environment leads to a 16% increase in the educational results of students, and thus increases the quality of human capital. What should the new educational environment be like? How can we make learning truly fun? What is a textbook for the 21st century? How can we make education a soft power of Russia at the international level?
