Teacher quality: Kenya focus
This paper was presented at the Distance Education and Teacher's Training in Africa (DETA) 2011 Conference, in August 2011, Mozambique. Quality teachers greatly contribute to students’ achievement and they are the system's principal resource. Teacher quality is critical in determination of quality of education which is a country’s engine of development. The teachers’ effect and influence on a child’s learning is much greater than the effect of school organization, leadership and financial conditions as teachers are an important means of passing on knowledge, skills, values and attitudes required for democracy, citizenship, intercultural dialogue and personal development (European Union 2010).The teacher effect is positively correlated to pupil achievement as together with the parents teachers 2 design the destiny of a child.
