October 5 is World Teacher's Day > Watch + Learn + Share
"On this day, we call for teachers to receive supportive environments, adequate quality training as well as ‘safeguards’ for teachers’ rights and responsibilities...We expect a lot from teachers – they, in turn, are right to expect as much from us. This World Teachers’ Day is an opportunity for all to take a stand." ~ Irina Bokova, UNESCO Director-General
World Teachers’ Day is an opportunity to examine issues facing teachers on the national and regional levels from an international perspective and to measure the progress made by national teachers in a global context. A truly international perspective necessitates that all countries accept and celebrate World Teachers’ Day on 5 October.

Cheating and dishonesty is all around us. It permeates our society from stem to stern. No one is immune and we all have a tendency to rationalize (condone) our own behavior as well as that of our friends, family and colleagues.
"You can't help but having your motivation influence how you see reality." ~ Dan Ariely
