Andreas Schleicher: Don't give up on ‘Education for All’

"The Global Monitoring Report puts the focus on what matters most. Good teaching. The quality of an education system cannot exceed the quality of its teachers. That is why top performing education systems pay attention to how they select and train their staff. They watch how they improve the performance of teachers who are struggling and how to structure teachers’ pay. They provide an environment in which teachers work together to frame good practice. And they provide intelligent pathways for teachers to grow their careers. They invest resources where they make the most of a difference, and they attract the most talented teachers to the most challenging classrooms. The lesson for policy and practice from these countries are clear, and it is time for the world to take notice." Click to read the full blog post at OCED Education Today
