Teachers' Day Teachers' Day by countries and regions
Teaching is a traditional profession. However, teachers don't have their official holiday for too long - UNESCO has recommended celebrating World Teachers' Day only in 1994. So, in many countries, students and their parents traditionally appreciate the teachers on a different day.
The Czech (and Slovak) day of teachers tradition is tied to the birth of the philosopher, writer and founder of modern pedagogy, J. A. Comenius.
