We prepare teachers to educate the next generation.

250 million of the world’s children cannot read. Most of them are in school. 
Teaching children to read and write is essential, but not enough. 
Modern societies require higher levels of thinking and communication skills.
To be successful as students, and also future parents, citizens, and workers, girls and boys must become active, thoughtful, adaptable, inventive, and civic-minded learners and problem solvers. 
Teachers need new priorities, more effective methods, and better materials to prepare the next generation to live productively and peacefully.
