Abstract [en]

The paper explores different definitions of quality in education and different reasons for the focus given to quality in education during recent years. The characteristics of a good teacher is discussed as well as what teachers can do to improve the quality of education. The following measures could be taken in order to improve the quality of education on �system level�; Improve the quality of teacher education. Ensure that all students will get at least one textbook. Increase the number of school libraries and provide schools with classroom libraries. Find ways to start to introduce new technologies into the schools on a broader scale. In order to improve the status of all teachers world wide, education authorities, governments and intergovernmental organisations must ensure that teachers: receive the moral and material recognition appropriate to their level of qualifications and responsibilities; have an adequate working environment; can do their work in adequately equipped school buildings; have a salary comparable with other professions requiring the same level of qualifications and responsibility; have the right to form and control their own representative organisations; have the right to participate in the process of formulating educational policies; receive a good initial teacher education and professional development. One possible line of actions could be to suggest to governments to form a kind of quality alliance where both governments and teacher unions promise to undertake a number of actions to promote quality in education.
