Producing High-Quality Teachers in Latin America

Lea en español

By Jeffrey Puryear

We are pleased to share with you our most recent PREAL Policy Brief, “Producing High-Quality Teachers in Latin America.” The brief reviews the global debate on how to produce high-quality teachers, and connects that debate with conditions prevailing in Latin America. It discusses diverse approaches to the selection of teacher trainees, the content and regulation of training programs, and the assessment whether trainees are competent to teach. The brief summarizes some of the most commonly recommended strategies, and argues for an experimental, results-oriented approach.
