For years, burnout has been a serious issue for the teaching profession around the globe. According
to a 2014 report by the Alliance for Excellent Education, a teachers’ advocacy group, roughly 50

Further advances in critical infrastructure will create important growth opportunities for developing countries via e-commerce, mobile paym
