It is truly wonderful that from generation to generation we are able to recognize and appreciate the teachers' mission and their great role. It means that we also recognize and appreciate the role of education.
Today we, as a state, beside the nice words are trying to show in practical terms our attitude towards your work. Everything that we have already started or have planned, pursues one concrete goal - to constantly raise the role of education and teacher's mission in our society, to ensure your dignified position in the society and creative freedom.
I once again congratulate you and all teachers of Armenia, and wish you boundless energy and thoughtful pupils.
All the best to you, thank you," Serzh Sargsyan said.
