2013 theme - Every Child Needs a Teacher

This year the GCE Global Action Week (GAW) theme was Every Child Needs a Teacher. CBM along with other members of IDDC produced a leaflet outlining what ‘quality education’ for learners with a disability means.

Please see leaflet (Link to leaflet on IDDC website, along with translations into other languages).

The gap between the need for a teacher and availability of qualified professional teachers is great. In order to achieve the promise of the EFA and MDGs, there is a need for 5.1 million teachers. In order that every child realises their right to education an additional 1.7 million teachers.

This GAW is the opportunity to mobilise, raise awareness, lobby and campaign side by side with educators, parents, teacher trainers, teachers’ union and many more supporters.
