World Teachers Day is next week, on Monday, October 5th. This year, the event is being held entirely online because of covid-19. With me is David Edwards to talk about the online event and some of the key people who will join. We also talk about some of the big issues that teachers face worldwide because of coronavirus.
David Edwards is the general secretary of Education International, the global federation of teachers unions representing some 32 million teachers worldwide. He is also a board member of FreshEd and a regular guest on the show. Be sure to join the World Teachers Day celebration by visiting 5oct.org. Again, that’s the number 5OCT.org. Everyone is invited.
