The World Bank’s Making Teacher Policy Work report!
The report explores why, despite the growing evidence on effective teacher policies, we still do not observe high-quality teaching and learning in action in every classroom.
The report argues that we need to go beyond the theory of what works in teacher policy to how to support teachers in different contexts to adopt what works, while making sure it is implementable at scale and can be sustained over time.
This event will kick off by introducing the key messages from Making Teacher Policy Work. Following this, a panel including policymakers, teachers, and researchers from around the world will discuss the importance of putting teachers at the center of education policymaking and to share challenges, opportunities, and promising innovations in teacher policy.
We will explore new perspectives on questions such as: Why do pay for performance programs often fail to improve student learning? How can policymakers address global teacher shortages? How can teacher professional development most effectively support teachers to adopt new practices, including the use of technology, to improve their lessons?
