Teachers for Tomorrow's Schools: Analysis of the World Education Indicators. 2001 Edition.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Montreal (Quebec). Inst. for Statistics.; Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
This book is the second in a series that analyzes the education indicators developed through the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD)/UNESCO World Education Indicators (WEI) program. It brings together data from countries participating in the WEI program with comparable data from OECD countries. Its main objective is to shed light on the supply and demand of qualified teachers in WEI countries in the face of increasing recognition of teachers' roles in improving education systems and ensuring positive learning outcomes. The book examines trends in educational finance and governance, focusing on how they relate to teachers and teaching conditions; reviews patterns of access and participation in education systems to signal changes in the demand for teachers; compares what is demanded of existing and prospective teachers in terms of qualifications and workload with existing financial and other job-related incentives; and reviews the policy choices and trade-offs that governments face when balancing expanded access to education against the need to attract and retain good teachers. A statistical profile of important determinants of the supply and demand of qualified teachers together with a comprehensive statistical appendix covering both WEI and OECD countries are included.
