Executive Summary

With a major part of US education being public, the government is expected to spend US$165.36 billion on education and training in 2014, which will form 3.2% of the total government spending for the year. With 98% of the US schools having internet and 17.6% of the population using internet at schools, many educational institutions are embracing technology, and companies are investing in the educational technology space.

The US education space is witnessing several technological trends, such as increased use of massive open online courses (MOOCs), flipped classrooms, and gamification in learning. The education sector is also witnessing influx of many new technology companies, as well as activity in deal space.

The government is also taking adequate measures to promote technology–enabled learning. President Barack Obama, in June 2013, has called on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to improve the federal E-Rate program - which subsidizes broadband and wireless connections in schools and libraries across the US. With more than 99% of US schools expected to have high–speed broadband and wireless Internet by 2018, the demand for technology–based education in the US is expected to increase further.
