In 2012, 58 million children of primary school age were out of school – but are those in school getting the education they need? For our national progress in education blog series, Purna Kumar Shrestha looks at the lack of quality in teaching and consequent poor results of those children who have spent years in education, and the lessons we can learn from VSO and the Department of Education's work in Papua New Guinea in improving access to qualified and motivated teachers.
