This paper studies the effect of globalization on educational attainment. Using exports as percentage of GDP and globalization index to measure globalization, I use a series of panel regression models that includes agricultural exports, skilled manufactured exported and low-skilled manufactured exported as explanatory variables of schooling. Using a panel of 63 countries, 47 years (from 1970-2016) and OLS model, my results suggest that reduction in tariff or increasing in exports lead to increase in years of schooling. Moreover, WTO member does not play roles in education achievement. Educational attainment decreases with agriculture exports, low-skill-intensive manufactured exports and skilled manufactured exports.
