Today (Saturday 5th October) is World Teachers’ Day! It commemorates the signing of the 1966 ILO/UNESCO recommendation – concerning the status of teachers. It sets benchmarks for rights and responsibilities, as well as the standard for their preparation and further education.
For 2020, the theme is “Teachers: Leading in crisis, reimagining the future”. The day will see celebrations of both teachers and their achievements, draw attention to their voices, as well as push to attain the global education target of leaving nobody behind.
The current global pandemic has significantly added to the challenges faced by the already over-extended and over-worked education systems, and we must work with teachers to protect the right to this vital resource. On their official site, UNSECO describe the ‘issue of teacher leadership in relation to crisis response not just timely, but critical in terms of the contributions teachers have made to provide remote learning, support vulnerable populations, re-open schools, and ensure that learning gaps have been mitigated’.
