October 5 is recognized by UNESCO as ‘World Teachers’ Day’. Undoubtedly, the day is very significant for teachers. Because the day is celebrated in many countries of the world in honor of teachers. Teachers in various countries are honored for significant contributions to their respective fields of work. Indeed, teachers’ job is to prepare workers for building the future.

This is no ordinary job. It is undoubtedly a creative work. Because the teacher does not work with anything like bricks and stones. He/she works with flesh-and-blood students who have extraordinary minds. And by spreading a positive influence on this mind, the student has to be prepared for the future. The future is a dream come true. Especially to students.

And the realization of this dream means facing thousands of crises. Just standing will not work. To face the crisis and open the dreamy golden door. And the teacher does the challenging work of making it suitable for this work. Here is the difference between teaching and other professions.

The world-famous philosopher Socrates was originally a teacher. And although there was no worldly interest behind his teaching, he was sentenced to death by the ruling class of Athens at the time.

History Of World Teachers Day

5th October is celebrated as ‘World Teachers’ Day’. The day is also known as ‘World Teachers’ Day’ or ‘International Teachers’ Day’. World Teachers’ Day is observed on October 5 in recognition of the outstanding contribution of teachers in the field of education and development.

Teachers not only teach studies but also give various advice to succeed in life, teach morals, and teach to fight against adversity. And World Teachers’ Day is celebrated as a recognition and recognition of the rights of these teachers. It is also intended that the next generation also observes this day effectively and with proper dignity. To commemorate this day, UNESCO campaigns every year to better understand the world about teachers and highlight the importance of their impact on student development.

  On October 5, 1966, the Intergovernmental Conference on the Status of Teachers was held in Paris, the capital of France. It was there that UNESCO and the International Labor Organization (ILO) signed some recommendations for teachers. For the first time, these consultations dealt with the rights and responsibilities of teachers and various aspects of the global teaching profession.

In 1994, based on the decision taken at the 26th session of the United Nations body UNESCO, October 5 was declared as ‘World Teachers’ Day’. Since then, World Teacher’s Day has been celebrated on October 5 every year in many countries including Bangladesh.

Why do people celebrate World Teachers’ Day

Not without saying a word. Many official days are observed in every country. Students along with teachers have to be present in the celebration of these days. But this very important day for teachers is not celebrated officially. The teachers must have felt honored if this day was celebrated officially, which would have served as a great incentive for them.

 We all know that teachers have many deprivations, the accumulated pain of not being available. However, teachers get what no other profession gets. At least I don’t believe anything else in the world can compare to the sincere and genuine respect and love a teacher gets from students and parents (with few exceptions).

And that’s why I don’t consider this profession any less than any other profession.  But I want to say one thing, to get this respect and love, you have to first take a place in their hearts. If education is the backbone of a nation, then teachers are the backbone of education. If teachers are in trouble, it will be difficult to ensure the quality of education.

Therefore, not only teachers but to ensure the quality of education, all kinds of problems and inconsistencies in the education sector must be removed and a planned education-friendly environment has to be created. Otherwise, our achievement of SDGs will also be hindered. And so, the teachers also have to play the highest role in creating this learning-supportive environment. We can expect the joint efforts of all concerned parties to take the country forward by ensuring the quality of education. That’s Why this day celebrates like a festival.
