The role of the teacher in every person life is vital and crucial for society. To pay rich tribute and remember your teacher in your prayer, World Teachers’ Day is being observed on Tuesday.

It is also called International Teachers’ Day and it is observed every year on October 5. The day is being observed since 1994.

The theme of World Teacher’s Day 2021 is, ‘Teachers at the Heart of Education Recovery.’

The theme recognises teachers for their tireless efforts to keep teaching even during hardships like COVID-19 Pandemic.

World Teachers’ Day is being observed since 1994. World Teachers’ Day was created in 1994 by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNICEF) to celebrate the role of teachers in the development of each individual.

The day acknowledges the anniversary of the adoption of the 1966 International Labor Organisation/ United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organisation recommendation concerning the status of the teachers.

The recommendation concerning the status of the higher education teaching personnel was adopted in 1997 in order to complement the 1966 recommendation.

The service of teachers and their contribution to education is acknowledged on World Teachers’ Day. It is an opportunity to consider the challenges related to the teaching profession. This day is an occasion to resolve issues regarding the teaching profession and to recognise the rights and responsibilities of the teachers.

The day is celebrated today in about 100 nations around the globe. On this day, programmes are organised in schools and colleges in respect of their teachers.

A joint statement from Unesco, ILO, Unicef and Education International said, “On World Teachers’ Day, we are not only celebrating every teacher. We are calling on countries to invest in them and prioritize them in global education recovery efforts so that every learner has access to a qualified and supported teacher. Let’s stand with our teachers!”
