Here are some key advocacy messages of the Task Force:

- Education is a fundamental human right and public good. Qualified, motivated and empowered teachers play a central role in providing this education.

- Every learner has the right to be taught by a trained and qualified teacher.

- Teachers are one of the most influential and powerful forces for equity, access, and quality in education and key to sustainable global development.

- The prominence of teachers in the SDG4-Education 2030 framework reinforces the need for sound knowledge and data about the situation of teachers.
