The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are unprecedented in their scope and level of ambition. But has the investment in tools, time and confidence for teachers matched these ambitions? The campaign for Education for All (EFA) and the massive wave of recruitment it provoked, with the hiring of unqualified and untrained personnel, have contributed to the erosion of the status of teachers in many parts of the world.
