Sub-Saharan African countries face unique challenges relating to teacher support and management; the single biggest factor affecting teaching quality and therefore, learning outcomes. The current pool of teachers in many countries is a wide mix of trained and/or qualified teachers who have an extremely variable grasp of content knowledge and skills. In addition, schools in Sub Saharan Africa are plagued by chronic absenteeism or ‘ghost teachers’ on the government payroll.

Reflections of a teacher whose understanding of and attitude to inclusive education was transformed.

This volume focuses on the various aspects of teacher education which need to be addressed in order for the wider Millennium Development Goals to be achieved but, more importantly, so that each African child living within sub-Saharan Africa will have the right to a quality education: ensuring they, too, experience their right and entitlement as children to reach their full potential - often taken for granted in Western countries - giving African children the necessary tools to build a better future for themselves. Of particular interest to the educational researcher and policy maker, this volume's contributors look at the various issues and challenges around the teacher profession, particularly in relation to resources and practices within sub-Saharan Africa. The contributors examine the issue of building research capacity for educational research within teacher education colleges and explore the concept of education for sustainable development with the view to improving the development of quality teacher education within the global South. In this volume, research reports are presented, highlighting the various challenges within the structure and provision of teacher education within certain national contexts, including assessment and curricular issues, which need to be addressed.
