But one reality needs to be faced more than any other; that is the desperate shortage of teachers. In rural communities across Africa, Asia and Latin America it is not unusual to find more than 100 children crammed into a single classroom with a single teacher. International statistics tend to disguise this fact by measuring average pupil–teacher ratios, but even these can be revealing. The average pupil–teacher ratio (PTR) in developed countries is 14 children to a teacher (and in reality this works out to mean class sizes of about 30).
Sending a child to school is often not seen as being of immediate value in itself, here and now. 14 Yet, for a child like Somchai, the most crucial part of going to school would be the experience of being there – day to day. Of course it could be a terrible experience if children discriminate and bully as they did before. But if the school focuses on creating a safe and creative environment then the experience would transform Somchai’s life. It would not just transform his future prospects but also transform his daily life experience, how he relates to others, how he feels about himself, and increase his own sense of value and purpose.
The status of the profession has diminished. Pre-service teacher training courses that once ran for three years have been cut to two years or just one year. 17 The World Bank has played a confusing role in this, suggesting on the one hand that governments should invest in education but on the other hand that there is little point in investing in teacher training. 18 It is no surprise then that the World Bank has actively promoted the introduction of non-professional teachers in many countries, particularly in west Africa – in other words, students who have completed secondary schooling, or sometimes just lower secondary, are recruited as teachers in primary schools without being given any training at all.
