Social Inclusion and Corporate Responsibility Workshop Proceedings 21 November 2008

All developed countries are seeking to improve their international competitiveness. As the nature of their competitive basis changes away from traditional manufacturing and agricultural industries to services and more sophisticated manufacturing and value-adding industries -knowledge-intensive - industries the perceived need for greater skills development and educational achievement levels has grown. Thus a key underpinning of international competitiveness for many countries is the competitiveness of their educational levels and in turn, their education systems. In many cases educational achievement levels have stalled in the wake of successful mass education programs in the last century and countries are seeking to reinvigorate educational growth. However they do so within a climate in which those countries are also facing major new challenges of economic and social adaptation and competing investment needs. As a result, different routes to educational investment are being sought and used. This paper will outline these, together with the major policy issues associated with them.
