World Teachers’ Day, also known as International Teachers Day, is held annually on October 5. Established in 1994, it commemorates the signing of the 1966 UNESCO/ILO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers, which is a standard-setting instrument that addresses the status and situations of teachers around the world. This recommendation outlines standards relating to education personnel policy, recruitment, and initial training as well as the continuing education of teachers, their employment, and working conditions. World Teachers’ Day aims to focus on “appreciating, assessing and improving the educators of the world” and to provide an opportunity to consider issues related to teachers and teaching.
This image is a photograph of the monument of Mesrop Mashtots best known for inventing the Armenian alphabet in 405 A.D., initiating Armenian literature and bolstering Armenian national spirit. It is situated at the Matenadaran Institute of Ancient Manuscripts in Yerevan. The photograph was provided by Marcin Konsek but I have yet to learn the name of the sculptor. If any of you know, please contact me.
