International Teachers’ Day

The purpose of the day is to support teachers all over the world to provide quality education at all levels and to emphasize the crucial role of teachers in building more fair and sustainable societies.  On this day, Ataturk Society of America resonates to the U.N.’s message by reminding the world of the following quote from Ataturk, one of many, in his address to teachers in October 1925 in Izmir, emphasizing teachers’ invaluable contributions to the betterment of society: “It is only education, science and teachers that can save the nation.”
