Why we celebrate Teacher’s Day?

It is known that on 7th March, 1980 in the United States, Congress registered the first Teachers’ Day. The origin of the holiday is associated with 1953, when Eleanor Roosevelt helped Congress to proclaim Teacher’s Day.

Nowadays, most of the world’s countries, except World Teachers Day, which is celebrated on 5th October, celebrate their Teacher’s Day on other days. World Teacher’s Day is connected with the fact that in 1966 the “Doctrine of Freedom” was signed. The holiday itself is celebrated since 1994.

What Do People Do?

The purpose of the world holiday is to focus on “assessing and improving teaching in the world. On this day it is customary to give teachers flowers. In some schools, students in the upper grades take lessons from students in the lower grades. For example, in India a holiday is associated with the birthday of Dr. Sarwapalli Radhakrishnan. He was a good teacher. He was loved by many students. He suggested on his birthday to celebrate the day of teachers across the country.
