Andreas Schleicher: Getting Teacher Development Right

Andreas Schleicher: Getting Teacher Development Right:

 "Teachers are being challenged to transform educational outcomes, often under difficult conditions. They are asked to teach in increasingly multicultural classrooms. They must place greater emphasis on integrating students with special learning needs, both special difficulties and special talents, in their classes. They need to make more effective use of information and communication technologies for teaching. They are required to engage more in planning within evaluative and accountability frameworks. And they are asked to do more to involve parents in schools. No matter how good the pre-service education for teachers is, it cannot be expected to prepare teachers for all the challenges they will face throughout their careers."
