It is 2019 World Teachers’ Day. The day was first held on October 5, 1994, to commemorate the ILO/Unesco recommendation concerning teachers’ status.
This was pivotal in terms of teachers’ right, setting standards for their initial preparation as well as further education, recruitment, employment, and teaching and learning conditions.
This year, World Teachers’ Day will celebrate teachers with the theme: “Young Teachers: The future of the Profession.”
According to UNESCO, the day provides the occasion to celebrate the teaching profession worldwide, to take stock of achievements, and to address some of the issues central for attracting and keeping the brightest minds and young talents in the profession.
Google is celebrating the day with a brightly coloured Doodle shows a smiling red octopus teaching a class of eager fish.
It uses its various legs to take in assignments, as well as wipe the board and pass the chalk to a yellow pupil.
