Attention Class! It’s World Teachers’ Day!

Attention Class! It’s World Teachers’ Day!

Let’s take today to show our genuine appreciation for the teachers who help empower our future generations.

First established in 1994, World Teachers’ Day commemorates the anniversary of the 1966 UNESCO/ILO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers.  This Recommendation established a framework for addressing the rights and responsibilities of teachers on a global scale.

UNESCO dedicates today to recognize the significant contributions that teachers all over the world have made towards global growth, development, and empowerment.  UNESCO identifies the goals of World Teachers’ Day as the following:

  • To create a support system and network of teachers around the world.
  • To launch public awareness campaigns to highlight the contributions that teachers have made to society.
  • To establish a standard for better employment conditions, including appropriate salaries.
  • To advocate for opportunities for career growth.
  • To support quality training for teachers so they can better lead their students.
  • To uphold inclusive education standards and teaching that respects human rights.
  • To give international and local support to teachers to ensure the quality of education.
  • To help teachers who are striving to make a difference in underdeveloped and developing nations.
  • To highlight the importance of teachers’ role in the growth and development of all nations.

These are just a few of the major goals that UNESCO wishes to accomplish with World Teachers’ Day.  To do our parts, it would be beneficial to show our appreciation for our local teachers and encourage our communities to recognize and honor the essential work that they do.
