With the theme “Teachers: Leading in crisis, reimagining the future”
The World is celebrating October 5 as the World Teachers’ Day.
On behalf of the Broken Chalk members, Broken Chalk Spokesperson Erdinç Demirok made the English statement.
“Teachers are the architects of society. Every individual accepts that education is the number one priority of humanity. Without the proper knowledge, we could not be able to create a peaceful community. The light of education can help us eliminate the evils from society and introduce good thoughts. Today we would like to celebrate The Teachers Day of all the teachers in the World. Moreover, we would like to bring to the public attention world teachers in danger in different parts of the world. The attacks range from the bombing of schools to the killing of students and teachers. Rape and sexual violence, arbitrary arrests, and forced recruitment also occurred, instigated by armed groups. Attacks on education harm the students and teachers, but they also affect the communities both in the short and long term.”
