India's teacher training crisis
Fewer and fewer young people are training to be teachers in India, causing real concerns for the future. Numbers have fallen by as much as 30% in recent years, according to Bharati Baveja, head of the Education Department at Delhi University.
The decrease in numbers is largely a result of poor pay and lack of welfare care provision. The Sixth Pay Commission has set pay increases at 40% which, it is hoped, will go some way towards remedying the situation.
