Equitable Learning: Our Common Objective

Improving the quality of education in developing countries is a complex challenge that requires input and cooperation by a multitude of stakeholders. As the frontline facilitators of education, teachers play a unique and important role in education; yet their voices and perspectives have not been well represented in the global dialogue to ensure equitable learning for all.

On December 8, the Center for Universal Education at Brookings hosted a private luncheon discussion on the role that the teaching profession plays in ensuring equitable learning for all. Susan Hopgood, president of Education International, and Angelo Gavrielatos, federal president of the Australian Education Union, provided opening remarks. Senior Fellow Rebecca Winthrop moderated the discussion with representatives of teachers’ unions, multilateral organizations, professional development organizations and alliances, advocacy groups and academics.
