Teachers are of great importance in the life and education of children, as their teachings have been carried on over the years.
Being a teacher is a profession that, apart from knowledge, shows patience and responsibility in the development of the students.
For the first time in 1918, Teacher’s Day was celebrated in Mexico on 15 May. The date was chosen a year earlier, when a group of legislators in Congress began discussing the idea of honoring Mexican teachers.
Deputies Benito Ramárez (Veracruz) and Enrique Visca Lobatán (Coahuila) were the ones who approved a project for the constitution that currently governs us — a few months before the plenary session of the Constituent Assembly presented on September 27, 1917. The festival was gone.
In this regard, researcher Alejandro Canales Sánchez explained in an article published by the UNAM Higher Education Symposium (SES):
“While presenting the project to the plenary session of the Chamber, he drew attention to the prevailing injustice meted out to teachers and the importance of giving honor and respect to their work. As a result, he proposed a law with two articles: the first announced on 15 May. The first to be done by the teacher and the second so that ‘the parents or guardians of the children may send them to their teachers’ homes that day, to congratulate them, out of respect for their gratitude’.
The following month, lawmakers discussed the details of the proposal. As such he chose 15 May as the ideal date, apart from specifying that classes at all educational levels be suspended on that day and that the organization of cultural activities was necessary to promote the work of the teaching profession.
