Education is a fundamental issue concerning the future of each country and nation.

As a large tree is unthinkable apart from its roots, without educators we cannot expect the training of talents, social progress and development of human civilization. World famous politicians and outstanding military strategists and musicians are grown up under the care of educators.

However, the universal education did not meet the realistic demands of the developing times in the international arena in the past. Especially, due to the social apathy caused by political and economic factors, state investment in education declined and living conditions of teachers in charge of education were not improved in different countries and regions, placing obstacles in the way of educational development.

In this context an international education conference was held in October 1994 in Geneva, Switzerland, with education ministers and representatives of over 100 countries in attendance.

According to the unanimous demands and agreements of its participants, the meeting set October 5 as World Teachers’ Day and decided to observe the day every year.

WTD celebration is aimed at raising public awareness of the significance and importance of education in social development and enhancing the position and role of teachers.

A variety of events are held and measures taken to improve education and raise public interest in teachers in many countries on WTD.

From a steadfast viewpoint that the prospects of the socialist cause and future development of the country hinge on education, the DPRK increases national and social interest in education without suspending or neglecting the education of the rising generations even a moment in any difficult situations.

A trait has fully been exhibited as the days go by that all people offer strong support for education as parents of students.

Projects are dynamically pushed ahead to improve the educational conditions and environment across the country under the leadership of the Workers’ Party of Korea which put it forward as a consistent policy to attach importance to education and stubbornly implemented it.

The state also directs efforts to building up the ranks of teachers in direct charge of education.

A habit of respecting and treating teachers preferentially has been established in the DPRK under the concern of the Party and government.

It is evidenced by modern flats on Mirae Scientists Street and Ryomyong Street, which were provided to educators gratis by the state.

Under the state care educators of the country make remarkable contributions to the training of talents and social development.

The Workers’ Party of Korea and the DPRK government will work harder to achieve national rejuvenation and development by attaching importance to education and on the strength of science and technology.
