World Teachers’ Day – October 5, 2012

Internationally recognized as World Teachers’ Day, October 5 is a special day to celebrate the essential role of teachers.  Established by UNESCO (United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization), we celebrate today by recognizing all teachers, especially music teachers, who constantly provide quality education to students at all educational levels.

The organization strives to address the rights and responsibilities of teachers by setting international standards for education, employment and recruitment.  Assessing and improving overall teaching and learning conditions is also a strong part of the process.  Since 1994, this has become highly regarded as an important set of guidelines for improving the status of teachers worldwide and helping them invest in the overall goal of improving the quality of education for all students.

Thank you teachers throughout the world for everything you do every day.  Enjoy World Teachers’ Day!
