TEACHING is a profession joined by many, a science understood by some, but an art mastered by a few. It is the brick required to build a strong nation.
The birth of several developed societies in the past few centuries can be rightly credited to improved quality of teaching.
However, the story of our education system is not in sync with such developments around the globe.
Our nation is far too behind others in the field of education.
Many have been held responsible for such a poor show, but some are ignored outright, namely, the teachers.
The reason why the demand for tutors is outstripping its supply is that parents no longer trust schoolteachers for their ward’s success.
Teaching in itself has become a job which people take up as the last resort to fill their bellies.
There is a great need of developing a policy which gives a new life to this divine job by providing for the necessary incentives in tune with the people’s changing and growing aspirations.
