Teachers and Educational Quality Monitoring Global Needs for 2015 by UNESCO Institute of Statistics pdf download. Massive teacher shortages are quietly looming over countries in sub-Saharan Africa, the Arab States and South Asia and could risk efforts to provide every child with a good quality primary education by 2015. But it is not only the imperative of translating a target into sufficient numbers of teachers, but the support for teachers and teaching quality which will finally lead to the attainment of universal primary education.

This report provides a comparative assessment on the state of teachers and education quality based on a wide range of data sources, including school censuses, assessments of student and teacher knowledge, and statutory teacher data. It uses these data to highlight trends in teacher quantity and quality and explores the policy implications of bridging the gap between the two, especially in developing countries. It compares the strengths and shortcomings in the recruitment and deployment of teachers in countries around the world.

The greatest challenge lies in countries in sub-Saharan Africa. According to estimates presented in the report, the region will need to raise its current stock of teachers by 68% – from 2.4 to 4.0 million – in less than a decade. For example, by 2015, Chad will need almost four times as many primary teachers and Ethiopia will need to double its stock of primary teachers. Additional primary teachers will also be needed in countries in the Arab States and in South Asia.

Moreover, countries needing the most new teachers also currently have the least-qualified teachers. In countries that consider about nine years of schooling as the absolute minimum qualification to teach, 43% of teachers in the Congo and 55% of teachers in Lao PDR fall short of this standard. The report stresses that policies must address both teacher quantity and quality. Countries like Niger or Cambodia cannot achieve universal primary education simply by hiring more teachers but by training them well and by supporting them in the classroom. Quality teaching brings children into school and keeps them there.
