Program on September 25 Spotlights Importance of Teachers in Developing Countries

Every education system is only as good as the teachers who are in the classroom. With that in mind, Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4) calls for a major increase in the supply of qualified teachers and more support from the international community for teacher training in developing countries.

The Society for International Development (SID)-Washington Education for Development Workgroup is sponsoring a series of programs on the Importance of Teachers in Developing Countries. From 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM on Tuesday, September 25, a session on Teacher Professional Development – The Disruptors: Innovative Programs and Promising Approaches will be held at 1129 20th St. NW, Suite 500, Washington, DC.

Alison Pflepsen, Reading Program Specialist for Reading within Reach/Global Reading Network, URC-CHS, will be one of the speakers for the event. The other speakers are Rachel Cristina, Team Leader, Basic Education and Literacy Team/Senior Literacy Expert, EDC, and Anne Smiley, Associate Director, Research and Evaluation, Global Education, Employment and Engagement, FHI 360. The moderator for the session will be Robert Burch, Deputy Director, E/3, Office of Education, USAID.
