EI has just published a report detailing the World Teachers’ Day 2006 activities of its affiliates around the world.
World Teachers’ Day 2006 had a special resonance, as it marked the 40th anniversary of the joint UNESCO/ILO Recommendation on the Status of Teachers. Many teachers’ unions drew upon the Day as an opportunity to lobby their governments to make Education For All a reality in their countries and to emphasise the importance of quality education. For others, it was a day of protest, taking place amid a wave of demonstrations, as in Portugal, Spain and Greece. The report is available to download via the link below.
