This year`s World Teachers` Day (WTD) celebrations on October 5 highlight the importance of empowering teachers as a critical step towards quality education and sustainable societies, under the UNESCO Slogan, "Empowering teachers, building sustainable societies".
SADTU celebrates 25 years of existence on the 6th October this year. This giant was born in 1990 to liberate the teachers from yoke of apartheid. To liberate our country from Bantu education. To liberate our young people and adults from ignorance. Looking back on our rich history- our heroic struggles, our accomplishments, our proudest moments and challenging moments- and celebrating how far we have come as well as what the future holds.
