The Africa Federation of Teaching Regulatory Authorities has challenged all African leaders to build a united continent by putting education on a higher level.
Naija News learnt that the charge was made at the Conference organised by the umbrella body for education regulatory councils in Africa .
The conference attended by member countries in Africa in the Education sector is expected to gather ideas on the implementation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 4 and how to move the teaching profession forward.
The participants charged African leaders to see to the funding of the sector, if the SDG 4 is to be achieved, for the betterment of the Africa Continent. Teacher development and enhanced professionalism is also of priority in the conference.
Participants believe that to achieve the SDG4 which stresses the need for quality education for all, the ratio of teachers to students in class rooms must be addressed. It is hoped that the outcome of the Conference will address common challenges faced by member countries in the education sector.
