I represented my country at World Teachers Day programme held in UNESCO Headquarters, Paris on 4-5 October 2018. This year’s theme, “The right to education means the right to a qualified teacher,” has been chosen to remind the global community that the right to education cannot be achieved without the right to trained and qualified teachers. Even today, a continuing challenge worldwide is the shortage of teachers. There are an estimated 264 million children and youth still out of school globally. To reach the 2030 Education Goals of universal primary and secondary education, the world needs to recruit almost 69 million new teachers. This ‘teacher gap’ is more pronounced among vulnerable populations, such as girls, children with disabilities, refugee and migrant children, or poor children living in rural or remote areas.
I also participated Hamdan Prize award ceremony and disscussion sessions during programme. I am proud to represent my country in this great organization.
Ülkemi 4-5 Ekim 2018’de merkezi Paris’te olan UNESCO’da düzenlenen “Dünya Öğretmenler Günü” programında temsil ettim. Bu yıl “Eğitim Hakkı, Nitelikli Öğretmen Hakkıdır” temasıyla gerçekleştirilen programda tartışma oturumlarına ve Hamdan Prize ödül törenine de katıldım. Bu büyük organizasyonda ülkemi temsil etmenin gururunu yaşıyorum.
