UNESCO’s EFA WEEK 2006: Every Child Needs a Teacher

Teacher shortages threaten quality Education For All. ‘Countries across the world will need to recruit more than 18 million teachers over the next decade. The greatest challenge lies in sub-Saharan Africa, which will need to expand its teaching force by 68% over this period. By 2015, countries like Chad will need almost four times as many primary teachers, from 16,000 to 61,000, while Ethiopia must double its stock to achieve a universal primary education. The Arab States will need to create 450,000 new teaching posts, mainly in Egypt, Iraq, Morocco and Saudi Arabia. Another 325,000 teachers will be needed in South and West Asia, primarily in Afghanistan, where the teaching force must grow by almost 9% a year over the next decade, according to UIS estimates.’
