Need for World Class Teachers
We need more decent classrooms for our millions of public school pupils. We need more textbooks and other teaching materials for them. We need to increase the number of years in basic education to be at par with our East Asian neighbors. But above all, we need world class teachers. The greatest service we can render to the poor is to make quality education available to their children. Quality basic education for the poor is the most effective means of combatting poverty.
