Around the world teachers share their commitment to their students’ learning. Their schools are very different, but they have much in common in their fight for things like class sizes, inclusion, teaching resources or elimination of fees. Many teachers share a strong commitment for democratic values and to educate their students in these values. Some even risk their own lives for teaching girls.
