The Reverend Francis Kwame Apraku, a Teacher at Amuzudai Junior High School, Adabraka in Accra, has expressed the need for the State to value the teaching profession, as the world marked World Teachers' Day.

Rev Apraku in an interview with the GNA said it very essential to celebrate teachers, adding: "The service we provide is very crucial to the survival of the country's development.”

He said the essence of the Day is to recognise the work of teachers all over the world.

This year's World Teachers' Day, marked on Wednesday, October 5, was celebrated on the theme: “Valuing Teachers: Improving their status.”

This year’s World Teachers’ Day, which also marks the 50th anniversary of the adoption of the 1966 International Labour Organisation and UNESCO recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers.

Rev Apraku said there is the need to place value on the teaching profession and all stakeholders must support the work of teachers.

He noted that the act of recognising the efforts of teachers in national development would be a morale booster for the teacher to also sacrifice essentially to child upbringing.

He called on Government to declare the World Teachers’ Day as a statutory public holiday, with broader activities, which should include public lectures and seminars to mark and climax it with the Best Teacher Award.

By 2030, 3.2 million more teachers would be required to achieve universal primary education and 5.1 million more in order to achieve universal lower secondary education.
