World Teachers’ Day
Since 5 October 1994, World Teachers’ Day commemorates the anniversary of the adoption of the 1966 ILO/UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers.
“This Recommendation sets benchmarks regarding the rights and responsibilities of teachers and standards for their initial preparation and further education, recruitment, employment, and teaching and learning conditions.
The Recommendation concerning the Status of Higher-Education Teaching Personnel was adopted in 1997 to complement the 1966 Recommendation by covering teaching and research personnel in higher education.” – source

Hello- Does the ILO/UNESCO Act of 1996 recommend any sort of fair pay for educators? It is a shame how teachers are being paid in the U.S. We need to do something to change this. Too many potentially wonderful prospective educators decide on different career paths because they know a teaching salary is not a sustainable income to raise a family on. Our children are quite obviously suffering. Thank you for pointing out World Teacher Day. I did not even know there was such a thing. Maybe we should all take the time to buy some supplies for the classrooms in our communities today. Donate so teachers have one less thing to buy with their own paychecks. Thanks again!
That is a very valuable question.
Most public services do not pay well and you really need to be altruistic to do the job.
So, many do not make a career in education indeed.
It has become a hard and unfulfilling job.
There was a time, every dime was counted. No waste. Only the best were allowed to study.
And people learned the job on the fly.
Today, I wonder if we do not need a public debate about education.
Going to school does not make you smart if you are not.
There are so many different ways to learn, and so many different types of intelligence.
So yes, there is a real problem
My dad is a teacher and he still works on teacher’s day, LOL
It is not an holiday (in my country) which is a shame. There is no effort put in place to celebrate properly our teachers, those who thrive to give us and our children knowledge. I think this institution still have a lot to do in order to make the teacher’s day a success everywhere because celebrating such a day can help create passion and vocation.
Yes… teachers need proper celebration like so many other civil services, greatly underestimated indeed. If we were to instore national days, there would be no days left, but perhaps a civil servants day would help. What do you think?
