World Teacher's Day is celebrated on 5th October every year for celebrating the anniversary of the 1966 International Labour Organisation (ILO) and UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers. This sets the rights and responsibilities of teachers. This day is celebrated to give tribute to the teachers all over the world and to show appreciation and honour. They all find ways to improve the condition of teachers and enhance the teaching techniques for the future generation.
The theme of this day for 2020 is “Teachers: Leading in crisis, reimagining the future”. This year due to the Covid-19 the education system has to face a lot of problems and so the teachers are under stress and pressure. But as teachers are great fighters they are learning new techniques and going through hardships, just to keep the light of knowledge alive. They are teaching online and taking regular classes. So this year theme is very appropriate.
Thus, 5th October is a day to celebrate the teaching profession all over the world. Being a teacher is one of the toughest professions as the future of the country is in their hands. It is a profession that will never lose its importance. As we know that there is no age limit for learning and so teachers will always be there to guide the students.
