Teacher's Day is a festival to thank teachers for their teaching in the past year. It aims to affirm teachers' contributions to the cause of education. The time of teacher's day varies in different countries. Respecting teachers and attaching importance to religion has always been a fine tradition in China. As early as the 11th century BC in the Western Zhou Dynasty, it was proposed that 'disciples serve teachers and respect one's father'. In 1985, the ninth session of the Standing Committee of the Sixth National People's Congress passed the proposal of the State Council on the establishment of teachers' day. The meeting decided to designate September 10 as teachers' day every year. In 1994, UNESCO set October 5 as "World Teachers Day".
Teachers' day aims to affirm teachers' contributions to the cause of education. In the modern history of China, teachers' day has been held on different dates for many times. It was not until 1985 that the ninth session of the sixth Standing Committee of the National People's Congress passed the proposal of the State Council on the establishment of teachers' day that September 10, 1985 was truly determined as the first teachers' day in China.
The origin of teachers' Day
Teachers' Day is the only three professional festivals in China, including nurses' day and journalists' day. Since 1931, there have been four kinds of teachers' day in different historical periods in China.
The earliest teacher's day in Chinese history is 1931. At that time, Tai shuangqiu, Cheng Qibao, a well-known professor in the field of education, initiated to contact people from Beijing and Shanghai education circles, proposed June 6 as teachers' day every year, and issued the declaration of teachers' day, which proposed three goals: improving teachers' treatment, ensuring teachers' work and improving teachers' cultivation. Although the birth of this Teachers' Day was not recognized by the Kuomintang government at that time, it had a certain impact all over the country.
"Six middot; six teacher's Day" -- in 1931, famous professors in the field of education, such as Tai shuangqiu and Cheng Qibao, contacted people in the field of education in Beijing and Shanghai, and proposed June 6 as teacher's day every year, and issued the declaration of teacher's day, which proposed three goals: improving the treatment of teachers, ensuring the work of teachers, and enhancing the cultivation of teachers. This teacher's Day was not recognized by the Kuomintang government at that time, but it had a certain impact all over the country.
Teachers' day -- the Kuomintang government decided in 1939 to establish August 27, Confucius' birthday, as teachers' day, and issued the Interim Measures for the commemoration of teachers' day, but it was not implemented in the whole country at that time.
Teachers' Day - in 1951, the Ministry of education of the people's Republic of China and the all China Federation of trade unions agreed that the international labor day on May 1 should be regarded as teachers' day in China. For various reasons, teachers' Day is not actually implemented.
"Nine middot; ten" teachers' day -- in order to carry forward the fine tradition of "respecting teachers and valuing teaching", and improve the status of teachers, the ninth meeting of the sixth Standing Committee of the National People's Congress on January 21, 1985, determined that every September 10 is the Chinese teachers' day.
