According to UIS projections, about 69 million teachers must be recruited to achieve universal primary and secondary education by 2030. Teachers have a huge impact on learning in the classroom and are natural mentors to help guide children and youth. To be impactful, teachers must be treated as professionals, supported throughout their career with training and provided with the skills and materials to do their job effectively.
