The COVID-19 pandemic has taken an enormous toll on education. Beyond school closures and lost learning, we have lost countless educators.
The death of one educator is a tragedy for their family, students, and community. The death of so many educators around the world has an absolutely devastating impact on the profession and education as a whole.
This website is a space where we can come together to remember the educators we have lost and celebrate their legacy.
This World Teachers’ Day – October 5th, 2021 – Education International will host a global tribute event in their honour. As educators, as unionists, and as a global community we will celebrate their life’s work, their dedication to their students, colleagues and their profession, and we will commit ourselves to taking their mission forward. Join us!
