Why We Celebrate Teachers Day

Teachers day is one of the most celebrated days in schools and colleges and holds a special place in the life of every educator and learner. However, many of us may not know the reason why we celebrate teachers day. This day is celebrated to mark the birth anniversary of one of the best teachers in India, Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan.

Why we celebrate teachers day on the 5th September? It is because this day is the birth anniversary of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. Teachers day is celebrated all over the world with different themes every year. The theme for the year 2021 was ‘Teachers at the heart of education recovery’. Various organizations like ILO, UNESCO, and UNICEF and Educational International come together to celebrate this day. They aim to celebrate every teacher and respect their profession. Moreover, the idea is to motivate every country to invest in teachers awards and prioritize them in global education recovery efforts. With the help of teachers every learner will get access to quality education. The story behind the celebration of teachers day in India states that the students of Dr. Radhakrishnan requested him to celebrate his birthday. However, he requested his students that his birthday should be observed as a celebration for all teachers. That is why we celebrate teachers day on the 5th September every year. On this day, students organize different programs and give special attention to the needs of their teachers.
