A country is considered developed when citizens have the knowledge and skills they need, and most of them are highly educated. When the rate of literacy is high, people can have better jobs, thus increasing the GDP and per capita income in addition to provide a decent life. The government can concentrate on the solution of problems in other fields, such as education, instead of trying to solve the problem of poverty. There will be less human rights violations, as many can read and understand the law. If the rights of people are violated, they can defend themselves. the government can, then, save, time, effort, and money in the implementation of its laws, therefore maintain, if not increase, of the GNP.
