On 5 October, World Teachers’ Day, tens of thousands of students, parents and activists around the world will pay homage to all teachers who have been directly, or indirectly, affected by a major crisis.
Be it a humanitarian crisis, such as the earthquake in Haiti and China, or the global economic crisis that has devastated many developed economies over the past year, the role of teachers and other education personnel is vital to social, economic and intellectual rebuilding. Recovery begins with teachers!
All those who are fighting to provide quality education to children of the world can join teachers and their representative organisations to celebrate the profession and show them their support.
The website for World Teachers' Day, www.5oct.org, is now live, and offers a wealth of possibilities to mark the day:
