Global Teacher Shortage - Teacher's Gap Map

As reported by UIS, the supply of teachers is failing to keep pace with the demand for primary education. According to the latest UIS data, the world needs to create 1.6 million new teaching posts by 2015 in order to reach universal primary education and to replace 3.7 million teachers leaving the profession. In total, the world needs 5.2 million new teachers.

The situation is most extreme in sub-Saharan Africa, where the school-aged population continues to rise. More than 900,000 new primary school teaching posts are required by 2015.

Access the interactive data to see where the demand is most acute.
