Interview: Teachers in Forced Displacement Contexts: Persistent Challenges and Promising Practices in Teacher Supply, Quality, and Well-Being
Teachers are essential to any education system. For millions of refugee and internally displaced children and youth, teachers play an especially important role. With comprehensive training and ongoing support, teachers can help these children navigate unfamiliar settings and new curricula, thereby creating a protective educational environment in which all students can thrive. In this interview, Dr. Ozen Guven talks to Dr. Mary Mendenhall, Sonia Gomez, and Emily Varni about their research on teachers and teaching practices in contexts of forced displacement.
