Following the success of the International Conference on Teachers for EFA held in Nairobi, Kenya in January 2011, the policy dialogue forum in Bali, Indonesia in September 2011, and the workshop conducted in Hanoi, Vietnam in November 2011, the Secretariat of the International Task Force on Teachers for EFA in close conjunction with the government of India will organize a two-day long conference which will focus on a range of issues related to teacher challenges for EFA.
The conference, Teacher Challenges for Education for All in India, will bring together members of the Central and State governments as well as a wide range of stakeholders from non-governmental and civil society organizations at the national level as well as international organizations and will provide a platform of discussions on the five following areas:
-Continuing professional development for teachers in India
-Decentralization: challenges and steps forward
-Feminization of the teacher force
-Public-private partnerships to address the teacher gap
-Monitoring & Evaluation of teacher policy reforms
The objective of the policy dialogue forum is to deliberate over the five aforementioned areas and the issues that fall under their premise with a view to generate recommendations that could inform future policy decisions at the central and state level. The conference will also allow for an opportunity to share policy-related experiences with other members of the International Teachers Task Force to facilitate both South-South and North-South cooperation on these key issues.
