are in line with the (United Nations) call, through the theme “A Call for Teachers"
celebrating the "World Teacher's day 2013", which falls on Monday,
Oct. 5th. The UNESCO celebrates this day along with the “International
Labor Organization”, the “United Nations development program”, the “United
Nations Children's Fund” (UNICEF) and the “Education International”.
This theme stands as
a call for providing quality education, which brings hope, and holds the
promise of better living conditions, and provides strong foundations of durable
peace and sustainable development. This type of education provides enthusiastic
and well trained teachers that have support and appreciation. The world is
suffering from a severe shortage of professional, trained and well supported
teachers; the challenge is not limited to
the recruitment of sufficient numbers of teachers, but hiring qualified
teachers. A large proportion of teachers worldwide lack training and suffer
from low wages and declining prestige in society.
The UNESCO is
focusing this year on the problem of the shortage of teachers, and the
obstacles to improving the quality of education, and the role of teachers in
preparing global citizens. According to UNESCO statistics, at the global level
(5.24) million teachers need to be recruited to achieve universal primary
education by the year 2015. Also the employment of (3.66) million teachers to
replace teachers who are leaving their work. And the development of (1.58)
million jobs, to be able to access (57) million children not attending school
while they're in the age of enrolment in primary education, on the one hand,
and on the other to focus on the performance of teachers and quality of education,
according to the same statistical source (250) million children cannot read and
write grade four although they are enrolled in school.
