Many of the world’s major problems stem from ignorance, poverty or prejudice. War. Disease. Racism. Many of the ultimate solutions to these problems involve education. At ExtensionEngine, we don’t have a mission statement. We have a mission.
We’re on a mission to help every person get a great education, which ultimately will make the world a better place. We want to see dramatic improvements in K-12, higher education and corporate / lifelong learning.
- 7,000 students drop out of K-12 in America every day. We can do better.
- Less than 7% of the world’s population has a college degree. We want the other 93% to have access.
- Even in the US, just 40% of adults obtain a college degree. Everyone should have access to education beyond high school.
- 70% of universities believe their graduates are adequately prepared to compete in today’s job market, but less than half of employers think they are prepared. Let’s close this gap!
We want learning to be as fun and addictive as Minecraft or Call of Duty. We want to help the best learning institutions be better, we want to help struggling institutions be the best and we want to help launch revolutionary new ways of learning. That’s what we want. That’s our mission.
