With the spirit and love for quality education, The Educator's Network(TEN) dedicated to promoting progressive, researched based teaching methods to advance teaching and learning in Ghana organised a conference that welcomed hundreds of people from Accra and beyond.

The conference was held on Saturday 25 November at the Lincoln Community School in Accra.

Addressing participants at the conference, keynote speaker and principal of SOS-Herman Gmeiner International College Israel Titi Ofei raised concerns about the need for stakeholders to put priority on the quality of teachers churned out to handle students.

He explained that a good curriculum is as important as the teaching staff.

"You’ve visited a school and established that you like the headteacher. They have a clear vision for their pupils, and the place has an orderly and friendly culture. Now it is time to consider taking your ward there? The quality of teachers should be the premium concern".

People will definitely talk about putting up good structures, better feeding of students amongst other but the element of good education will be missing if teachers are not of good quality,he added.

Participants also expressed gladness for being a part of such a powerful conference.
