Education and Skills
Education is both a human right and a productive asset. A quality education allows young people to gain skills and become more knowledgeable and productive citizens. However, millions of children and youth across the world remain out of school or unable to meet reading and numeracy proficiency standards. The King Center supports students, faculty, and emerging scholars who aim to improve educational outcomes and boost access to quality education systems through research.
