The teacher’s role in society is of vital importance
According to H.G. Wells, “The teacher is the real maker of history.”
In recent time, teaching profession particularly at school level has gone under tremendous devaluation and degradation in the country.
It is disheartening and demoralizing to note that teachers have lost their iconic image and influence.
Splashes of reports in the newspapers witness to the gory tales of teaching profession and highlight the atrocious deeds of poorly trained teachers.
Teachers are reported to have been involved in various cases of molestation, rape and other forms of cruelty in dealing with the learners.
The ghastly and horrific acts of teachers raise pertinent questions as to what has gone wrong with the learned persons and the system???
