On October 5th, over 100 countries will celebrate World Teachers Day. This year the theme of this annual event is "Valuing teachers, improving their status."
Personally, I'm unable to comprehend why this profession is so undervalued and constantly criticized. Without teachers we wouldn't have world leaders, doctors, chemists, and lawyers, to name a few occupations that are an important part of our society.
Without education it's also unlikely we would have cars, trains, aeroplanes, or even the fuel that is needed to power these means of transport.
We know that in countries where education is not wide-spread, there is a culture of fear and inequality. Is this the world we would want to live in. I for one, no.
So thank you teachers for your contribution.
