The teachers we need for the education we want: The global imperative to reverse the teacher shortage

Since 1994 World Teachers Day is honored every October 5. This is a time to celebrate teachers on the anniversiary of a 1966 UNESCO Reccomendation on teachers. From unesco:

With the theme “The teachers we need for the education we want: The global imperative to reverse the teacher shortage”, the 2023 celebrations will aim to put the importance of stopping the decline in the number of teachers and then starting to increase that number at the top of the global agenda. Through various activities, they will advocate for a dignified and valued teaching profession, analyse their challenges, and showcase inspiring practices to attract, retain and motivate teachers and educators. It will also examine the ways in which education systems, societies, communities, and families recognise, appreciate, and actively support teachers.
