As the 2018 World's Teachers Day focuses on the right to education, we at @iammindfulafrica stand with millions of passionate teachers across the world to call the global education community to realise that the right to quality education and lifelong learning cannot be achieved without trained and qualified teachers.
As the UNICEF 's model of quality education illustrates, content and processes, which are two crucial components of learning and academic attainment, can be greatly influenced by teachers. The role of teachers, particularly women, in eliminating gender disparities in education as highlighted by Target 4.5 of the SDGs can not be overemphasized. The increased presence of female teachers within school systems has not only shown marked improvement with enrollment rates for female students, it had also infused more friendliness in diverse school environments and enabling girls to be retain more within conventional and mainstream education systems.
Undoubtedly, good teachers and quality teaching are two fundamental factors that contribute to improved learning outlines and the success of every nation's education systems. From low renumeration to deprofessionalisation of teaching, our educators are facing complex and multidimensional challenges that needs urgent attention if the SDG4 and SDG5, amongst all, will be achieved by 2030.
Like never before, our Governments and other stakeholders of the teaching profession must understand that as the global demand for teachers continue to grow as asserted by @educommission, it is pertinent that teachers are adequately trained, professionally supported and adequately renumerated to maximize the effectiveness of educational systems.
Happy Teachers Day!
