Why we celebrate teacher’s day
World teacher’s day celeberated 5th October every year in all corners of World. In India we have one more teachers day celebration on 5th September every year in the honour of Dr. S. RadhaKrishna.
We are here in the world, whatever we are now, whatever we will be in future is all contribution of our teachers. From Gandhi ji to Swami Vivekanand and from sundar Pichai to Elon musk everyone has a backbone of their teacher.
Something similar like Dumbledore was there for Harry Potter. We all have some special teacher behind our succes. Despite of father and mother, they are the teachers who work hard and without any personal profite 24*7 available for you.
HISTORY of World teacher’s day
In 1994, October 5 was declared as the World Teachers’ Day, by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and since then it is celebrated globally on 5th October.
This day marks the anniversary of the 1966 adoption of the ILO UNESCO Recommendation that highlighted the status of teachers. It was in Paris that this was adopted during a special intergovernmental conference.
The official website of UNESCO iterates: “This recommendation sets forth the rights and responsibilities of teachers as well as international standards for their initial preparation and further education, recruitment, employment, teaching and learning conditions.”
In 1997, after this adoption, UNESCO General Conference also adopted the UNESCO Recommendation for the status of higher-education teaching personnel.
Theme for 2021 teachers day
This year’s theme is “Teachers at the heart of education recovery”. This theme is very apt because of the fact that the world is dealing with a major crisis. In the middle of a pandemic, teachers truly are at the heart of education recovery.
With the world going digital during Covid-19, teachers have faced various challenges but have come out stronger. Since the beginning, teachers were seen facing issues like connectivity, not being able to focus on the screen at once with so many children and there were teachers who were not very techno friendly inspite of all these challenges our teachers tried their best and make them updated with new technology for us. All these challenges were very common among teachers of old age.
