“I would sincerely like to acknowledge our teachers and students who have taken Estonian basic education to the top of Europe and among the strongest in the world.

Education forms the basis of all else – it is the foundation the future of each person and the whole society is based on. Education is the starting point that leads to our social skills and our ability to see, understand, and care. It is also the prerequisite for becoming more cohesive and prosperous as a society to make Estonia a better place for all our children.

The Government highly appreciates the hard work put in by our teachers and schools over many years and stands for the position of teachers to be even more valued. You have laid a strong foundation for our society. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am certain that each Estonian as well as the society as a whole has the wisdom to value and use your contribution for the sake of our country and people.”
