A survey asking parents in 15 countries revealed that 89% of them want their children to go to college.
Although parents around the world have different views on what a good education should provide at different stages, they are united in their high educational aspirations for their children, with nearly nine in 10 (89%) parents wanting their children to go to university. More than three in five (62%) want their child to go on to study at postgraduate level.
As the chart shows, 55% of American parents want their children to go on to postgraduate school.
“College for all” seems to be a common wish all over the world.
