The theme for this year’s global education action week (GAW) 21-27 April 2012 is “Every Child Needs a Teacher”. The theme is based on the acute shortage of teachers in many countries in the world and more especially in Africa.

As part of the GAW activities ANCEFA on 19 April issued a media statement which acknowledged a shortfall of at least 1 million teachers in Sub Saharan Africa.
In the statement ANCEFA also expressed concerns about presence of untrained teachers, poor motivation of teachers, and conflicts which affect the access to quality education in most countries. Without sufficient teachers, it will be very difficult for the estimated 30.5 million out of school children in Africa. to access quality education.
To address these challenges, ANCEFA has called on governments to among others intensify teacher training and recruitment, increase funding for teacher development, and improve teacher remuneration.
