Today is world teachers day, a day that recognizes education as a key fundamental right and establishes an entitlement to free compulsory education, ensuring inclusive and equitable access for all children. 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. This day is being celebrated as talks between teachers and their employer hit a stalemate Wednesday after the teacher’s service commission rejected a demand to revoke the transfers of 85 head teachers holding union positions.
