Chapter 2, "The Changing Status and Profile of Teachers," includes the Recommendations Concerning the Status of Teachers (which was adopted by a special intergovernmental Conference convened jointly by UNESCO and the International Labour Organization in Paris in 1966); the global pressures of student enrollments; the changing educational policy environment; and the emerging status and profile of teachers. Chapter 3, "Teaching Contexts and Pressures," discusses the concern for quality and relevance; trends toward monitoring and evaluation; the pressure on teachers; teaching and learning conditions; teacher education; and assessing teachers' effectiveness. Chapter 4, "Teachers, Teaching, and New Technologies," discusses hesitation toward the new technologies; key technological trends and developments; toward virtual learning environments; and implications for teachers and teaching.
