The gender of teachers in schools can influence the success of the "Education for All" movement, particularly in the context of girls' education in developing countries. That's what a recent report compiled by UNESCO's Education for All Global Monitoring Report (EFAGMR) says.
A sustainable society stands on four pillars -- people, planet, prosperity and peace. Education is the seal that binds these pillars individually and jointly. Sadly, today less than 4% of global aid goes for education. We need US$22 billion to send every child to school. This equals 4.5 days of annual military expenditure. Do we need soldiers more than teachers, armies more than educated citizens?
