Teachers are the critical factors behind education quality. The studies find that several consecutive years of effective teaching can offset the learning shortfalls of marginalized students.

High performing education systems attract and retain best talent into the teaching force, provide tailored, focused, practical, and ongoing pre-service and in-service trainings and empower teachers through increased autonomy and exciting career trajectories to lead improvement in education quality in their classes, schools, communities, and the country.

Expected Results
Discussion of key issues in the field of teacher development and the teaching profession, in particular:
- policies for attracting and retaining the best talent for teaching;
