The quality of education in Mexico ranks among the lowest in a list of 124 countries according to a 2015 Human Capital Report, which makes it difficult to develop a workforce that is healthy, educated and productive. The report was elaborated for the World Economic Forum (WEF).
Mexico’s principle weakness in developing its talent is the low-quality opportunities the country offers students under 15 years old, according to the report.
According to the study, Mexico ranks 102 out of 124 in primary school education (specifically, education offered to children 15 years and younger). Finland ranks first. This caused the nation to fall to 72nd place in the ranking for opportunities offered to children 15 and younger.
For those between the ages of 15 and 24, the quality of the education system ranks 107th, which means that the opportunities offered to that segment of the population ranks 63rd.
According to the index of Human Capital, Mexico ranks 58th out of 124 countries, which means that on a table measuring an employee’s economic worth based on their abilities and the population’s capacity to generate economic growth, it ranks in the middle. Mexico ranks behind Panama (49) and Costa Rica (53).
The study measures the capacity of a nation to promote talent through education and the development and deployment of abilities through the different stages of life.
The Human Capital Index, which has 46 indicators, considers all levels of education, grades and job opportunities in different structures that encompass people from 15 to 65 years old. After measuring the effect of previous investments and current human capital, it discerns the potential for each economy with the capital base.
