They led, inspired, made the world go round. We remember, honour, and continue the legacy of those dedicated to their students, their profession, and school communities everywhere. You are not forgotten.

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!
