The crucial role of a student is described as a new seed of invention and innovation. Without the presence of students, the forward growth of knowledge, social progress and human civilization will remain in status quo.
Though their existence is substantial, in the world today, the students themselves, governments and society, often underrate students' involvement and contribution in society. In the past, students considerably partook in many improvements and even revolutions of the greatest countries of today.
One of the undaunted movements led by students was the demonstration against the Czechoslovakia's occupation, which, then, led to the closing of all higher educations as well as the execution of 9 students and professors on 17th November 1939. As a result, this day of execution was remembered as the origin of International Students' Day, which is celebrated annually on 17th November until now. This year International Students' Day is specially commemorated with the emphasis on the students' movements and their importance in education.
