teachers report thumbEvery Child Needs a Teacher: Closing the Trained Teacher Gap Global Campaign for Education and Education International 2012

This report is part of GCE's Every Child Needs a Teacher campaign and identifies the gaps in the supply of teachers needed to achieve quality education for all.
