The United States won more medals than any other country in the 2012 Olympics. But where do we stand in the competition that really matters –the competition to prepare the next generation to succeed? The U.S. is slipping compared to other countries. In fact, by 2030, China will have 200 million college graduates—more than the entire U.S. workforce—and by 2020 India will be graduating four times as many college graduates as the United States.
This infographic illustrates the findings of a joint report by the Center for the Next Generation and the Center for American Progress, The Competition that Really Matters: Comparing U.S., Chinese, and Indian Investments in the Next Generation Workforce. Results from the Center for the Next Generation’s accompanying public opinion survey are also featured.
