There are 9 million teachers in India and we add another 900,000 teachers every year. Year after year, we have seen that only 1 out of 7 teachers in India clear the Teacher Eligibility Test conducted by the Government of India. Clearly, our teachers still need conceptual clarity. The training infrastructure in our country has failed our teachers who like any serious professionals like lawyers, doctors require regular and continuous professional development. This a big problem because the 250 million children currently enrolled in schools, completely depend on their teachers for learning.
The teacher app believes that offerting teachers access to progressive conceptual understanding over a smartphone will make significantdent for solving teacher education challenge in India. It aspires to address this gap by creating high quality interactive, digital content which can be accessed by any teacher or anyone interested in teacher education, for free.
