University of Pennsylvania, Penn AHEAD

Penn AHEAD Visiting Scholar Dr. Yergali Dosmagambet from Nazarbayev University presented on how an accelerated increase in educational attainments in many East Asian countries derives from a dramatic augmentation of working population with vocational relative to general education. Dr. Dosmagambet's research explores an analytical approach to open up fresh insights into the composition of secondary education and proves the existence of an optimal trajectory that ensures a highest expansion rate of secondary education at an early stage of development.
