ABSTRACT
Education is seen by virtually every social observer as essential to the success of developing countries in the global marketplace. Education helps the individuals within developing nations become better able to obtain jobs that will help them become upwardly mobile and helps the nations themselves obtain the human capital needed to be competitive in the postindustrial age. The education needed for developing countries comprises much more than basic literacy skills and general education, however. Also needed are vocational programs, job-related skills training, higher education, and professional education, as well as the skills that will make them successful citizens of their community, nation, and world. Education programs also need to be developed with the needs of all major stakeholders in mind so that developing nations can acquire the talent they need in a timely manner.
