Also, the main objective is to recognize teachers for their contributions to society and to the lives of their pupils.
Apart from this, Conferences and seminars are organized by policymakers and professionals to identify the difficulties teachers encounter and to try to come up with solutions.
Cultural programs for teachers are organized by many schools all around the world. Moreover, the world honors the crucial role that teachers play in transforming students’ potential.
This is done by making sure they have the resources they need to assume responsibility for their own actions as well as those of others and the environment.
Besides this, the nations must make sure that teachers are respected and acknowledged for their role as knowledge creators, self-reflective professionals, and policy partners.
