The day of October 5 is celebrated as World Teachers Day. This day is dedicated to honouring the teachers of the whole world. This day was started in 1994 by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). The purpose of this day's work was to express gratitude not only to the teachers but also to the efforts to promote them.

Celebrate 5th September in India as Teacher's Day or Teachers Day. The reason for choosing this special day as Teacher's Day is that on this day former Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan was born on this day. He was a teacher and he contributed a lot to education.

On this World Teachers’ Day, as we celebrate teachers’ important contributions to improving the lives of children and youth around the world.

The UNESCO cites that everyone can help by celebrating the profession, by generating awareness about teacher issues and by ensuring that teacher respect is part of the natural order of things.
