“I congratulate Teachers’ Day to all dear teachers at schools, universities and seminaries who are engaged in educating the thought and knowledge of the children and adolescents of the country,” Ayatollah Khamenei said his message.
"The young generation that is being trained in this direction is so massive and such a great reserve that no other phenomenon is equal to it for the country," he added.
Last year on the same occasion, the Supreme Leader, referring to human resources as the most important asset for people, said, “The most important subject of civilization for us is education. For a country and a civilization, the most important capital is human capital. That is to say, having money but lacking human capital, you would get nowhere.”
He added, “Just like some wealthy countries that devote their big pockets to traitors who perpetrate crimes against humanity, because they lack human assets.”
