World Teachers' Day 2023

OCTOBER 5, 2023 — Every year on October 5th, the world celebrates World Teachers’ Day to highlight the responsibilities, rights and the value of teachers. UNESCO introduced World Teachers’ Day in 1994 to draw attention to teachers’ contributions and achievements, as well as to teachers’ concerns and objectives in education. The date of October 5th was chosen as the international day to honour teachers since it was on that date in 1966 that a special intergovernmental meeting accepted the UNESCO Recommendation on the Status of Teachers.

The theme of World Teachers' Day 2023 is "The Teachers We Need for the Education We Want: The Global Imperative to Reverse the Teacher Shortage."

Thank you to teachers for everything they do!
