World Teachers Day
UNESCO has finally released the 2022 World Teachers’ Day theme, given in several languages below:
• English: The transformation of education begins with teachers
• French: La transformation de l'éducation commence avec les enseignant(e)s
• Spanish: La transformación de la educación comienza con las y los docentes
• Arabic: يبدأ تحويل التعليم مع المعلمين
“Let us use World Teachers Day 2022 to remind governments and the international community to invest in teachers – their training, continuous professional development, improvement of salaries and working conditions”, said EI Africa Regional Director, Dr Dennis Sinyolo in welcoming this year’s theme. “Governments should ensure a qualified and motivated teacher for every child”, he stressed.
The 2022 edition of World Teachers Day will take place a few days after the United Nation’s Transforming Education Summit, taking place in New York on 19 September. Education Unions should therefore use the occasion to assess the commitments made by governments at the summit and to keep them to account, Sinyolo concluded.
