World Teachers’ Day has been observed on October 5 to commemorate the signing of the 1966 ILO/UNESCO Recommendation Concerning the Status of Teachers. It outlines the rights and responsibilities of teachers, as well as the requirements for their initial preparation, ongoing professional development, hiring, and employment, as well as the conditions under which they teach and learn. Quality education systems are built on the strength of teachers, who also play a crucial role in creating societies that are fair and inclusive. COVID-19 has the potential to undermine efforts and reverse progress, despite the fact that the deadline for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals is less than ten years away. Teachers must be at the centre of every effort to support a sustainable education recovery.
This can only be accomplished by closely monitoring the global teacher targets. While indicators of teacher quantity and quality continue to be important, more research is required to comprehend teacher training programs and qualifications, as well as the pedagogical, health and safety, psychosocial well-being, and compensation support provided to teachers. After all, the profession’s advancement and social standing are heavily dependent on these factors. In 2022, the theme is: “Teachers at the heart of education recovery”. Teachers work hard to inspire, guide, educate and mentor us every day.
When a child arrives in this world, they have no knowledge. He learns everything from society and the environment. He acquires knowledge and education from the teacher, which is impossible without guidance. Teachers also play a significant role in our lives, just like our parents do. They teach us to do everything with wisdom. They provide moral support and inspire us to treat everyone equally and live in this society. They show us the right way to ensure that we are capable of surviving in this society and teach us the value of life. A teacher is more than just someone who teaches students the syllabus. They play a crucial role in shaping students’ futures from preschool to higher education. They act like a strict teacher inside the classroom, but once they leave the room, they act like a friendly friend, share space, and even have fun with us. Children begin to emphasize their surroundings. In our lives, teachers are more than just tutors. They play a role that goes beyond the classroom and the school. The world is a better place because of teachers. It is fair to say that teachers serve as excellent personal role models. We pay them respect and greet them before entering the classroom. In addition, teachers perform numerous other duties in the classroom. They mentor, educate, and well-nurture students while also setting the school’s tone. Because of this, the teacher’s role as a moral example is so important in one’s life.
Edu world celebrates the day with all due respect for all the teachers across the world. Today, we should be aware that only teachers can alter an individual’s social, moral, and financial lives. We ought to have to show them respect by appreciating everything they do for us. And show them how much you care by giving them the opportunity to become good people. As a result, teaching is regarded as a profession that teaches and creates all other trades.
