Investing in Teachers is Investing in Learning

Ensuring that qualified, professionally trained, motivated, and well-supported teachers are available for all learners is essential for addressing today’s key education challenges in poor and rich countries alike. The quality of an education system can exceed neither the quality of its teachers nor the quality of its teaching.

Investing in teachers can transform education and will be crucial for the effective delivery of a post-2015 education agenda that focuses on equity and learning. Teachers who have adequate subject and pedagogic content knowledge, are effectively trained, and are sensitive to the diverse needs of learners can make a huge difference on the education of students, especially in the early years of schooling. Governments must ensure teachers are appropriately prepared and supported – and development partners must focus their long-term technical and financial assistance efforts to build the capacity of countries that lack necessary resources.
