In the Chinese history, Confucius was the first teacher to advocateeducation for everyone without discrimination. Therefore, he was called the Most sagacious and venerated master after he passed away. Confucianism has a profound influence on Chinese culture. Apart from education, even the most basic daily ethics are deeply affected.
Teacher’s Day was established to memorized Confucius. Thus, our government decided to put his birthday, September 28th, became teacher’s day to honor his dedication. And this is the origin story of Taiwanese Teacher’s day.
