World Teachers' Day recognizes the contribution educators make to the world and reminds people to show their gratitude for the teachers who impacted their own lives.
Axar.az reports citing Newsweek that celebrated annually on October 5, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) established World Teachers' Day more than 20 years ago. This year's theme is "Young Teachers: The Future of the Profession" and aims to highlight the unique difficulties facing teachers face in the present-day.
"While teachers were once highly respected professionals, valued, trusted and accepted as inspirational role models for young people, nowadays they too easily serve as scapegoats for the failures of education systems," a concept note for the occasion on UNESCO's website explained.
