Literature review: Teachers problem for Education

This “Ten Problems for Education in the 2020s” booklet identifies ten relevant areas from very recent contributions put forward at academic level in the form journal articles, conference proceedings and students theses. Ten freely accessible internet references have been selected for each area and direct links are provided at the end of each chapter for own consultation. Our selected references do not intend to mirror ranking indexes nor establish novel classifications. On the contrary, they are meant to represent peer-reviewed, diverse and scientifically-sound case studies for vertical dissemination aimed at non-specialist readers. They will also be able to scoop even more references through the bibliography that is reported at the end of each selected reference.

Without further ado, these are the ten problems that we are going to introduce in this booklet:

  1. funding, 
  2. safety,
  3. technology,
  4. standardization,
  5. teachers,
  6. lifelong learning,
  7. diversity,
  8. creativity,
  9. accreditation,
  10. new trends.

Each problem has its own dedicated chapter made of an introductory section, a short presentation of the ten selected references and a conclusions section.

The final chapter of this booklet will report the conclusions from each chapter again in order to provide a complete executive summary.

THE PROBLEM — All highly successful educational systems rely on the experience and expertise of teachers to shape teacher and education policies. Big regulated policies and little practical policies are needed for everyday classroom-based decisions. These include: workplace environment, digital technologies, continuous development, multicultural competencies, special needs frameworks.

CONCLUSIONS — The teaching profession must play a leading role in the design and implementation of the policies and practices necessary to create classrooms that are conducive to quality teaching and learning. Teachers’ professional development is a complicated long-term process and during the support from expert teachers is an important external source for novice-teachers. Teachers experience stress brought on by hazardous working conditions, a lack of materials and resources to do their tasks effectively, excessive monitoring and demands for outputs. Big top-down policies from regulators and little on-field policies coming from daily experience should co-exist for classroom decisions. Only a few early childhood educators in Turkey agree that online education is effective in supporting children’s development and learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. Educators had limited eLearning experience prior to COVID-19 emergency eLearning and express strong preferences for in-person sessions. The students express that the tutoring functions, tasks and beliefs of the teaching staff in e-learning are not satisfactory. Job commitments, family commitments, health mental issue and time management are the main challenges faced by adult learners with full-time jobs. Intercultural competencies and high-quality implementation of formation/teacher training are of key importance for supporting the inclusion of migrants in schools. Students with special needs or autism can benefit from the use of teaching visual aids that encourage their expression.
