The Power of Teachers: Supporting Teachers in Tackling the Global Learning Crisis

September 16, 2019

Washington DC

  • In schools, teachers are the single most important driver of how much students learn. Teachers impact the lives of their students every day by enabling them to learn, gain new skills and grow.

    Join us for a lively discussion with global experts, featuring Peter Tabichi, winner of the 2019 Global Teacher Prize, on how to harness The Power of Teachers.

    The event will explore how to best support teachers and drive the change needed to tackle the global learning crisis and eliminate learning poverty.

    Panelists will focus on the global learning crisis and the efforts to tackle it by increasing the quality of investments in people, with a special focus on the role that education, particularly investments in teachers, can play in these efforts.
