More than 72 million children around the world remain unschooled. The global youth unemployment rate is now 13 percent. The challenges are extraordinary. But so is the passion to empower education.
There are 1.4 billion students and 65.2 million educators in the world. When you consider this immense student population, and the millions of educators dedicated to teaching them, technology becomes all that much more important. The right technology can literally become the engine for creating, sharing, exploring, individualizing teaching, and much more.
At Microsoft, we were founded on the principle that people can do remarkable things when technology is within their reach. Our mission is to empower every student on the planet to achieve more.
