NCA Statement on World Teachers Day 2013

In commemoration of World Teachers Day 2013, the National Coalition of Afghanistan underscores and commends the important and essential role Teachers are playing around the world, enabling students to realize their abilities and further preparing them to serve as valuable citizens in their countries and around the world.

On this day, it is most appropriate to remember and applaud teachers in Afghanistan, who render the most valuable contribution to our country, by educating our youth and preparing them to serve as future leaders of their nation. During the past twelve years, through the assistance of our international partners, Afghanistan has made significant achievements in the education sector. Nearly 75,000 teachers have been recruited and trained, 8 million students are enrolled in primary and secondary schools, 4,000 schools have been built and university enrolment has dramatically increased.

Despite these advances, with much more work to be done, it is imperative that Afghanistan’s education sector is further strengthened. One of the best ways to achieve this is to continue support and assistance to our teachers, who are the most important source of access and quality education. The NCA appreciates the hard work of our teachers, who are investing in our country’s future stability and prosperity.
