into one small
1. Shortage of Teachers -
448 million children under 18
years and approx. 7 million
2. Untrained or Inadequately
3. A Systemic Absence of
Vision, Purpose & Urgency
It is what the teacher
‘believes and does’ in the
classroom that matters
The most important predictor
of student achievement is
“ Teacher represents the most
significant resource contributing to
academic achievement” (Hanushek &
The Impact of a
Dr. Martin Luther King's 50 year old speech
I have a dream
that one day India will rise up and live out the true meaning of its
intent: "...that every child has a right to ... education of an equitable
quality and relevance in a school which satisfies all essential norms and
I have a dream that one day, in our schools, children regardless of social
status,or economic status, caste, or creed, will be able to learn and play
together in an atmosphere of mutual respect and affection.
I have a dream that one day every Indian school, burdened by
bureaucratic neglect and guilty of inequity, inequality and lack of
opportunity, will be transformed into safe, sensitive spaces for learning
with freedom and fairness.
Dr. King's speech paraphrased....
I have a dream that our grandchildren will one day live in a nation where
they will not be judged by the circumstances of their birth but by their
competence and content of their character.
I have a dream today!
I have a dream that one day, in every school and classroom, teachers
will uphold with honour, their amazing power to do the right thing for
every child, every day, and to see that no child, however
disadvantaged, misses the education that is her right.
I have a dream today!
I have a dream that one day the best young men and women in our
country, will seek to be teachers, not just for the status the profession
offers, but for the satisfaction of nurturing India's human potential.
Holistic development of children's
physical, cognitive, creative, social
and emotional capacities....
Conducive and large classrooms as
spaces for learning
Humane Working conditions for all
The best teachers stay on in teaching
– leading from the classroom!

What we teach...... (Zoe Weill)
The world will NOT become
what we don't teach
To know about change is to
know about inertia, which
is to say that sometimes
the status quo needs a
wakeup call. You can’t wait
for success, you have to
kick start it. (Fullan, 2009)
Change needs a
hefty push !
Every teacher more enabled, more inspired!
