World Teachers’ Day is 5 October, 2017

World Teachers’ Day has been held annually since 1994 and commemorates the anniversary of the signing of the 1966 UNESCO/ILO Recommendation concerning teachers’ rights and responsibilities on a global scale.

World Teachers’ Day 2017 will be celebrated under the theme “Teaching in Freedom, Empowering Teachers”, with a special focus on the status of higher-education teachers, who are often overlooked in discussions concerning the status of teachers.
