Gordon Brown, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, calls for the formation of a Global Fund for Education, alongside a strong business coalition, that places education at the top of the international agenda. He discusses the vital place of teachers in providing good quality education and as the foundation of a strong society. Mr Brown emphasises the urgent need for 1 million more teachers, better training for teachers, and an overall elevation in the status of the teaching profession. The message is clear: the more society values teachers, the more society develops.
