Let $\cal A, \cal B$ be a non commutative Banach algebras, and $\cal A$ be weakly amenable and has a quasi central bounded approximate identity. Let $T:\cal A\to \cal B$ be an algebra homomorphism which is norm decreasing and surjective. When ker(T) has a quasi central bounded approximate identity?

In particular, when I can conclude that $\cal A/ \ker(T)$ is weakly amenable?
