International Education Day 2023: The world is celebrating the 5th International Day of Education today January 24, 2023. The day is celebrated for empowering people with the light of education and bringing peace and prosperity. The theme of the 5th International Education Day is to invest in people and prioritize education.

The United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution to celebrate January 24 as the International Day of Education on December 3, 2018. The first International Day of Education was celebrated on January 24, 2019. However, the significance of celebrating International Education Day is to make education easily available to everyone irrespective of caste, creed and religion.

As per the United Nations, the right to education is cherished in article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. However, the declaration calls for compulsory and free elementary education. The Convention on the rights of the child was adopted in 1989 and it goes further to specify that countries will make higher education accessible to all. 

UNESCO Dedicates This Day To All Afghan Girls and Women

UNESCO dedicates the fifth edition of the International Day of Education to all the girls and women in Afghanistan who have been denied their rights to teach and study. However, UNESCO condemns this attack on human dignity and on the fundamental right to education.
