To celebrate his work and his drive for education, the first Teachers’ Day was celebrated on September 5, 1962, on his 77th birthday.

TEACHER’S DAY 2022: HISTORY
The International Labor Organization (ILO) and United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) recommendation about the status of teachers was adopted on this day in 1966, marking the anniversary of World Teachers' Day. The 1997 proposal was added to the 1966 recommendation to address the situation of teaching staff in higher education. This recommendation gave teachers all around the world a tool for the first time that specifies their duties and asserts their rights. After adopting this recommendation, all nations agreed on the importance of having competent, educated, and motivated teachers in society.
In honour of the former president, academic, philosopher, and recipient of the Bharat Ratna, Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, who was born on this day in 1888, India observes Teacher's Day on September 5 every year. When Radhakrishan was elected as India's second president in 1962, his pupils formally requested his approval to observe September 5 as a special day. Instead, in order to celebrate teachers' contributions to society, Dr. Radhakrishnan advises them to observe September 5 as Teacher's Day.
