Teacher policy

Teacher regulation, training, and management are fundamental to the learning experience and outcomes of education systems – and yet, in many areas, teacher training and policy is an undervalued area of research and knowledge generation. Teacher policies can help to address existing equality and equity concerns in education, but can equally serve to exacerbate them. NORRAG’s work in the area of Teacher Policy deals with the intersection between teacher policy and equity issues in the Global South with the goal of encouraging the management of teachers to address existing structural human rights concerns.
