Raise teacher status to improve schools, says OECD
Teaching must be made more attractive for the brightest students, says a report from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.
At present, teachers across the industrialised world are not receiving levels of pay that reflect their importance, says the report.
It highlights that the most successful countries for education are often those that deliberately recruit the best students into teaching.
It says that good levels of pay, progression and training are necessary to keep high quality teachers.
