Happy Teachers Day’ from India!

15 September 2014

Teachers’ Day is an unofficial holiday celebrated on different days around the world. From our Chinese classes at Pompano Beach High School, I received a large card on Sept. 10, the day Chinese students celebrate their teachers.IMG_0032 IMG_0034

In India, Teachers’ Day is celebrated on Sept. 5. Maya Menon, founder of The Teacher Foundation and a tremendous friend to all of us from Teachers for Global Classrooms who traveled to India in Summer 2013, wrote this blog post seeking not only to inspire India’s teachers but also its educational and political leaders, as the country undergoes a massive transformation in education due to the Right to Education Act, constitutionally making free compulsory education a fundamental right of children aged 6-14. I hope her message inspires you as well!
