The global literacy rate has spun nearly 180 degrees in the last two hundred years: in 1820 only 12% of the world’s population could read, while today only 17% are illiterate. Mass education has been a great success, creating what David Baker calls “a schooled society” with unmatched power to promote ideologies. Education has become a transforming social, economic and political force that is also impacting foreign policy.

Dr. David P. Baker is Professor of Education and Sociology at Pennsylvania State University. His research focuses on the impact of education on individuals and societies. He is a visiting fellow with the Center for Universal Education at Brookings Institution and editor of the journal of the Population Association of America. He has authored three books.
