World Teachers' Day 2016 observed across the world
05 October 2016 Current Affairs GK: The World Teachers’ Day (WTD) 2016 was observed across the world on 5 October 2016.

The theme for the World Teachers’ Day 2016 was Valuing Teachers, Improving their Status.

The theme for the 2016 WTD embodies the fundamental principles of the fifty-year-old Recommendation. It also throws light on the need to support teachers as reflected in the agenda’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). A specific education goal, SDG4, pledges to Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.

The 2016 WTD also marks the 50th anniversary of the adoption of the 1966 ILO/UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers. It is also the first world Teachers’ Day to be celebrated within the new Global Education 2030 Agenda adopted by the world community in 2015.

World Teachers' Day is being held annually on October 5 since 1994. It commemorates teacher organizations worldwide. Its aim is to mobilize support for teachers and to ensure that the needs of future generations will continue to be met by teachers.
