Teachers Day is celebrated today, 5th October, 2020.
There is no national reconstruction that can be successfully possible without their active participation. They are nation builders.
God, naturally, bestows to them the gift of molding children’s character as well as imparting enduring knowledge to them. If there were no teachers to teach lawyers, doctors, engineers and other professionals, right from their basic education to secondary, their dream would not have been realized.
Unfortunately, almost all their products earn more money as salary than they do because government has not realized that, no national reconstruction is possible without the active participation of teachers. They nourish the souls of children for life. They present the past, reveal the present and create the future. They have big minds to shape little minds. They are like candles that consume itself to light the way for others.
In celebrating the teachers across the world, UNESCO, UNICEF, ILO, had applauded them for their immense efforts to build the world.
A joint statement by Audrey Azoulay, Director-General of UNESCO, Guy Ryder, Director-General, International Labour Organization, Henrietta H. Fore, Executive Director, UNICEF and David Edwards, General Secretary, Education International, said Teachers’ Day is a reminder of the critical role teachers play in achieving inclusive, quality education for all, adding that this year’s event has a greater significance in light of the challenges that teachers have faced during the COVID-19 crisis.
“The COVID-19 crisis has also affected over 63 million teachers, highlighted persistent weaknesses in many education systems and exacerbated inequalities, with devastating consequences for the most marginalized. In this crisis, they have shown, as they have done so often, great leadership and innovation in ensuring that #LearningNeverStops, that no learner is left behind. Around the world, they have worked individually and collectively to find solutions and create new learning environments for their students to allow education to continue”, part of the statement read.
World Teachers Day is a special appreciation day to honor them for their special contributions of building up lives.
