This report is based on a review of literature on primary, secondary and primary teacher education in Malawi. The main emphasis is on primary teacher education and how it is related to primary education. Issues of pupil failure, teacher supply, quality of schools, quality of teachers, curricula, curriculum delivery and the associated costs have been highlighted as key to further understanding of what contributes to a teacher's effectiveness in the Malawian context.
