Is a strong investment in basic public education the only way for a country to leave the "developing" status and become a "developed" nation?

Is there a proven connection between a strong investment in basic public education and a country becoming developed?

The South Korean case appears to show that the relation is very clear.

Is it even possible to conceive that a country can ever become a developed nation without a strong investment in basic public education? Has that ever happened?

For most cases the answer is yes.
For those small countries or non sovereign territories earning mainly from gambling , financial services and exporting oil and gas, education is less important, they can hire educated people from other places by offering high income to them. Most such small economies have many imported educated and labour workers.

There is no developed nation that lacks a highly educated, skilled populace.

Development requires literacy, industrial level skill, as well as habits of mind that promote promptness and attention to detail. Modern primary education can provide these to the masses of a population. Without this an economy cant advance beyond agriculture & raw resource export.

Real intelligence IQ is going outside of a formal education building. Although, a variant to really quantify the occurrence. In the final, matters just enough. Although, doesn't seem like this on some occasions. A road to foster further facilitate. Rather than a solid guarantee. Rising chances of success, minimal.
