Urban Education: The benefits of urban education, the argument for decentralization, and the impact on the local economy

Brief

Urban students typically gain better global access to education, receive a bigger quality education, and outperform their rural counterparts. This "urban advantage" varies across territories, but is present in both the developed and developing world. A student's socio-economic background partially contributes towards the difference in performance but a number of advantages including superior access to materials and human resources widen the gap.

As the urbanization trend continues around the globe, education will be impacted in a number of ways. Theoretically, as an increased share of the world's population move to urban areas education will become more accessible to an increasing majority. However, in the developing world there are more meaningful barriers to education than merely residing in a rural setting. Notably, both the formal and informal costs of attending school prevent the poorest children from gaining access to education. Additional problems are also created; as rural to urban migration continues there is a rise in informal settlements, this makes the provision of education a better challenge and can increase inequality within schools.

A disparity between urban and rural education is a common trend witnessed across both the developed and developing world. There is evidence for an "urban advantage" across OECD countries,[1] while children in the developing world are more likely to have access to education if they live in urban areas. In Nigeria, 80.0 percent of school-age children who do attend school reside in rural areas.[2] Rural schools commonly have less adequate resources (both human and material) and facilities, greatly hindering students' achievement potential.

An increasing majority of the world's population are now urban dwellers, a trend which has been closely correlated with a rise in incomes and an increased focus on services in the contemporary economy. However, the developing world is experiencing significantly faster rates of urbanization than developed countries; it is predicts that city populations in Sub-Saharan Africa are anticipated to grow on average 16.0 percent between 2016 and 2025.

Urbanization in developing regions can improve global access to education facilities and provide superior resources to a larger share of the population. On top of, an increased urban population reduces the number of children making extremely long journeys just to attend school, as urban children will likely live closer to a school than their rural counterparts. These long journeys have been shown to negatively impact children's health, safety and educational achievement.

Overview
