Teachers Matter!

World Teachers’ Day underlines the importance of the 1966 ILO/UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers. Another UNESCO recommendation concerning the Status of Higher Education Teaching Personnel was also adopted in 1997.

Both recommendations lay down the guidelines on issues such as training and employment conditions for teachers worldwide; participation of teachers and their representatives in educational decisions; and measures that should be taken in each country to promote quality teachers and learning environments. They are the only comprehensive international standards for the teaching profession in existence.

With low salaries, overcrowded classrooms, low job security, inadequate training – The World Teachers’ Day, celebrated annually on 5 October, is the occasion to pay tribute to a profession whose role in the education of young people and adults remains essential.

The emphasis this year is on developing teacher policies, the only foundation for ensuring sustainable and high-quality recruitment. Happy World Teachers' Day!
