May 07, 2012

 

Date: 7th May 2012

India will host the Ninth E-9 Ministerial Review Meeting on “Inclusive, relevant quality Education for All” identified as the theme for the two coming years. The meet, scheduled to held on September 3rd, 2012 at New Delhi, would focus on shortage of teachers as it has been identified as a major challenge in the education sector today.

 

“With the government focusing on universalisation of secondary education and the Right to Education act (RTE) that came into force in April 2010, the emphasise in India is more on both the qualitative and quantitative aspects of the teacher deficit,” said Amarjit Singh, Joint Secretary, Human Resource Development Ministry. 

 

The International Task Force on Teachers for Education for All in collaboration with UNESCO will also organise a conference on Teachers for Education for All. The event will start with the meeting of the International Task Force on “Teachers for Education for All” – to be held for the first time in India—followed by a two day conference on, “Teachers for Education for All” in India and the E-9 meeting.

 

The meeting will discuss challenges and opportunities to address the issue of inclusive relevant quality education in pre-service and continuous professional development programmes, integrating excluded groups within the teacher force and pedagogical considerations for the effective delivery of inclusive quality education.

 

The participants will draft an action plan, including a monitoring mechanism, for E9 countries with regard to teacher training, provide a framework for increased cooperation among the E9 countries with regard to teacher training for inclusive quality education and identify key areas that need to be addressed within the realm of teacher education and training with regard to inclusive quality education.

 

The E-9 Initiative is a consortium of the nine most populous countries of the South was put in place in 1993, following the World Conference on EFA in Jomtien, Thailand in 1990. “E” stands for education and “9” for those nine countries. These are Bangladesh, Brazil, China, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Nigeria and Pakistan.



The E-9 countries identify an EFA-related theme and focus on it during a two-year period.
