President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo wishes Happy Teacher’s Day to all teachers from Sabang to Merauke and from Miangas to Rote Island.

“Teachers are the source of inspiration who give us knowledge, guide us and our children so we are able to boost human resource quality,” President Jokowi told the reporters during his working visit in Palembang, South Sulawesi, Sunday (25/11).

For the record, in Presidential Decree Number 78 of 1994, the Government has established National Teachers’ Day on November 25, which coincides with the birthday of the Indonesian Teachers Association (PGRI).

The establishment of National Teacher’s Day is a form of government’s appreciation for the dedication of teachers in the country.

“Once again, Happy Teacher’s Day,” President Jokowi said.

Minister of Education and Culture Muhadjir Effendy also shared similar wishes through the Minister’s twitter account @muhadjir_ef. “Teachers are foundations for Indonesia’s future education. Happy Teacher’s Day 2018,” the Minister tweeted on Sunday (25/11). (RSF/AGG/ES)
