Regional Panorama of Teacher Policies
The regional panorama considers the current state of teacher policies across fourteen Latin American countries. The document suggests that there is much that we can learn from taking a regional view of teacher policy. This perspective allows us to answer such questions as: Where are there bottlenecks and in what areas has progress been made? Are there certain areas where a regional approach may make sense or where a shared effort could move the needle towards addressing persistent and confounding challenges? What are specific examples where countries have been successful at developing solutions that might work in other contexts? The Panorama considers five dimensions: initial teacher education, teaching career, school leadership, continuing professional development and teacher evaluation.
