Happy World Teachers’ Day 2020 @UNESCO #Education #Teacher #WorldTeachersDay #LeadingInCrisis

Wtd 2020 cover image

Every October 5 is World Teachers Day, a time to celebrate teachers on the anniversiary of a 1966 UNESCO Reccomendation on teachers. Among other things the recommendation recognized “the essential role of teachers in educational advancement and the importance of their contribution to the development of man and modern society, ”

With 2020 the importance of teachers has been pushed more into focus.

From UNESCO:

In 2020, World Teachers’ Day will celebrate teachers with the theme “Teachers: Leading in crisis, reimagining the future”. The day provides the occasion to celebrate the teaching profession worldwide, take stock of achievements, and draw attention to the voices of teachers, who are at the heart of efforts to attain the global education target of leaving no one behind.

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly added to the challenges faced by already over-extended education systems throughout the world. It is no exaggeration to say that the world is at a crossroads and, now more than ever, we must work with teachers to protect the right to education and guide it into the unfolding landscape brought about by the pandemic.
