Contents Introduction : the focus on teachers -- Why is teacher policy important? -- Making teaching an attractive career choice -- Developing teachers' knowledge and skills -- Recruiting, selecting and employing teachers -- Retaining effective teachers in schools -- Developing and implementing teacher policy -- How the activity was conducted -- A framework for informing teacher policy
Summary Teachers Matter provides a comprehensive, international analysis of trends and developments in the teacher workforce in 25 countries around the world; research on attracting, developing and retaining effective teachers; innovative and successful policies and practices that countries have implemented; and teacher policy options for countries to consider. While documenting many areas of concern about teachers and teaching, the report also provides positive examples of where policies are making a difference. It spotlights countries where teachers' social standing is high, and where there are more qualified applicants than vacant posts. Even in countries where shortages have been a concern, there are recent signs of increased interest in teaching, and policy initiatives appear to be taking effect
