Facing multiple challenges in the midst of the pandemic and a green transition, government budgets have not prioritized investment in education in recent years, with two thirds of lower-income countries having cut their public education budgets.

Watch as Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship CEO Dr. J.D. LaRock explains the positive impacts of experiential learning, project-based learning, and entrepreneurship education at the 2022 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

The May 25 session, “The Economic Case for Education,” focused on the future of education and how businesses can prioritize education as a critical enabler of an equitable economic recovery. It was an important conversation on education, the economy, and entrepreneurship and provided an opportunity to lift up the impact community support from such corporations as Citi, EY, Mary Kay, PayPal, Santander, SAP, and Zuora has on NFTE’s work to ignite the entrepreneurial mindset in underserved youth.

The panel included LaRock; Dina Ercilia Boluarte, the Vice President and Minister of Development and Social Inclusion in Peru; Dipu Moni, the Minister of Education in Bangladesh; and was moderated by Anne McElvoy of The Economist.
