AKIPRESS.COM - school_kids_640 A study report on “Teachers in Asia Pacific: Status and Rights” was launched to mark the World Teachers' Day, according to a UNESCO’s press release.

Mongolia is one of eight countries (Cambodia, Indonesia, Pakistan, South Korea, Samoa, Sri Lanka and Uzbekistan) whose rights and status of teachers have been examined.

According to the report, teachers in Asia-Pacific are obligated to work well beyond contracted hours, lack adequate resources and in rural and impoverished areas are too often few in number or missing altogether.

“World Teachers’ Day recognizes teachers’ core contributions to building sustainable societies and helping us realize the goal of quality education for all learners. We have entrusted teachers with the critical task of moulding the minds of future generations. They need, and deserve, our support to carry out their work,” UNESCO Bangkok Director Gwang-Jo Kim said. “UNESCO’s study, Teachers in Asia-Pacific: Status and Rights, is an initial step towards better understanding how teachers are regarded and supported in this region.”

The study focuses on 10 areas: entry requirements; pre-service training; recruitment and deployment; workload; professional development; salaries; retirement; assessment; unions; and school leadership.
