Getting an "A" in K Through 12 Tech with Schneider Electric’s Lineup

By Ed Moltzen

The K-12 education market provides consistent opportunities for solution providers, and trends will always seem to bend toward growth. 

Technology advances and trends come and go, but kids still have to go to school.

That’s why the K-12 education market provides consistent opportunities for solution providers, and trends will always seem to bend toward growth.

According to Mordor Intelligence, “The K-12 Education Market size is estimated at $4.23 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach $6.98 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 10.09 percent during the forecast period (2024-2029),” meaning that solid double-digit growth in this space is a solid bet.

The K-12 education sector is increasingly reliant on technology to enhance learning experiences, necessitating robust IT infrastructure to support these technological demands.

“Digital transformation in education will continue for the foreseeable future. It is now common for students in a classroom to carry an endpoint device, like a laptop, tablet, or smartphone,” writes. “Those devices and new classroom technology, such as touchscreen displays, will enable further digitization as educators continue relying on digital solutions in the classroom.

“Meanwhile, demand for data keeps increasing, further straining IT infrastructure and potentially causing downtime, connectivity, or latency issues,” Bogosian says. “As a result, schools still need to bolster their IT infrastructure with edge computing solutions as demand increases.”

This space is when where APC by Schneider Electric is an experienced partner. In particular, the company provides:
