List of Teachers' Days

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Teachers' Day)

Teacher's Day is a special day for the appreciation of teachers. It may include celebrations to honor them for their special contributions in a particular field area, or the community tone in education. This is the primary reason why countries celebrate this day on different dates, unlike many other International Days. For example, Argentina has commemorated Domingo Faustino Sarmiento's death on 11 September as Teachers' Day since 1915.[1] In India, the birthday of the second president Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, 5 September, is celebrated as Teacher's Day since 1962.[2]

China 10 September The Chinese government first proclaimed Teachers' Day in 1985, but has never clearly explained why it should fall on 10 September. Some believe it is due to the similar pronunciation between the word "teacher" (教师; jiao shi) and the two digits 9 (; jiu), 10 (; shi) in the date. Some people believe it was an arbitrary choice and have proposed to change it to 28 September, believed to be the birthdate of Confucius. On 5 September 2013, the State Council announced a legislative draft endorsing the change.[17]

United States Tuesday of the first full week of May National Teacher Day in the US takes place on the Tuesday of Teacher Appreciation Week, which takes place in the first full week of May.

The National Education Association (NEA) describes National Teacher Day as "a day for honoring teachers and recognizing the lasting contributions they make to our lives".[46]

According to the NEA's history of National Teacher Day,[46] the origins of the day are murky. Around 1944, a Wisconsin teacher named Ryan Krug began corresponding with political and education leaders about the need for a national day to honor teachers. Mattie Whyte Woodridge (1909-1999), an educator from Helena, Arkansas, wrote to Eleanor Roosevelt, who in 1953 persuaded the 81st Congress to proclaim a National Teacher Day. The NEA along with its Kansas and Indiana state affiliates and the Dodge City, Kansas local NEA branch lobbied Congress to create a national day celebrating teachers. Congress declared 7 March 1980 as National Teacher Day for that year only. The NEA and its affiliates continued to observe Teacher Day on the first Tuesday in March until 1985, when the National PTA established Teacher Appreciation Week in the first full week of May. The NEA Representative Assembly then voted to make the Tuesday of that week National Teacher Day. As of 4 November 1976, 6 November was adopted as Teachers' Day in the U.S. state of Massachusetts. Currently, Massachusetts sets the first Sunday of June as its own Teachers' Day annually.[citation needed]

The holiday has its origins in a meeting between educators in communist bloc nations in Warsaw in 1957. This day was first celebrated in 1958 throughout North Vietnam as the Day of the International Manifest of Educators; in 1982 the day was renamed Vietnamese Educators' Day.[47]

Yemen 28 February
