DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Urban Education: The benefits of urban education, the argument for decentralization, and the impact on the local economy" report to their offering.
The report "Urban Education: The benefits of urban education, the argument for decentralization, and the impact on the local economy" provides detailed analysis to help the reader understand current and future educational matters likely to affect both developed and developing urban markets.
Urban students typically gain greater overall access to education, receive a higher quality education, and outperform their rural counterparts. This urban advantage varies across countries, but is present in both the developed and developing world. A student's socio-economic background partially contributes towards the difference in performance but a number of advantages such as better access to materials and human resources widen the gap.
As the urbanization trend continues around the world, education will be impacted in a number of ways. Theoretically, as an increased share of the world's population move to urban areas education will become more accessible to a growing majority. However, in the developing world there are more significant barriers to education than merely residing in a rural setting. Notably, both the formal and informal costs of attending school prevent the poorest children from gaining access to education. Additional problems are also created; as rural to urban migration continues there is a rise in informal settlements, this makes the provision of education a greater challenge and can increase inequality within schools.
A growing majority of the world's population are now urban dwellers, a trend which has been closely correlated with a rise in incomes and an increased focus on services in the contemporary economy. However, the developing world is experiencing significantly faster rates of urbanization than developed countries; it is predicts that city populations in Sub-Saharan Africa are expected to grow on average 16% between 2016 and 2025.
