Today, the world comes together to celebrate the annual World Teachers’ Day, a global event dedicated to honouring the essential contributions of teachers in shaping the future through education.
This significant occasion, observed every October 5, transcends borders and cultures as nations and communities join hands to express gratitude towards teachers.
Under the theme, “The Teachers we Need for the Education we want: The Global Imperative to Reserve the Teacher Shortage,” this year’s celebration sheds light on a critical issue – the shortage of qualified teachers worldwide.
World Teachers’ Day, also known as International Teachers’ Day, was established by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 1994. It is firmly rooted in the growing recognition of the pivotal role teachers play in nurturing knowledge, skills, and values in our societies.
Today, we commemorate World Teachers’ Day to reflect on the immense dedication and passion exhibited by educators across the globe. Their tireless efforts continue to shape minds, inspire innovation, and build a brighter future for us all.
