This is how People around the World view Education

Sharing core norms and values
Posted Nov 14, 2017 | Pew Research Center , Laura Silver

Publics in advanced economies prefer creative education more than people in emerging economies do. Among advanced economies, half or more respondents in six of the 14 countries surveyed by the Pew Research Center said it is more important that schools teach students to be creative and think independently, than to teach students basic academic skills and encourage discipline. Laura Silver suggests in this paper that in in most advanced economies, educational preferences are ideological.  Here younger people are most supportive of education that emphasizes creative and independent thinking. More than a quarter of Chinese volunteer that schools should emphasise both creative thinking and basic skills and discipline.
