The Whitepaper on Tech-Led Education from CMR focuses on the challenges in education facing India. India is a young nation with favorable demographics. >60% of India’s population is in the age group of 15-59 years. By 2020, the International Labour Organization (ILO) estimates that India will have 116 million workers in the age group of 20-24 years, as compared to 94 million workers in China. However, such demographics can be a dividend or disaster, based on how India approaches and provides for quality education for the masses.
In preparation of this whitepaper, CMR focused on several themes, ranging from education to the key skills challenges, and the role for tech-led education. The whitepaper offers practical recommendations for the road ahead.
