Education is the most important part of any individual and it is the learning years which determine the rest of the lives. So it is always important for students to get the right kind of learning and knowledge. The best and only way to get that imparted is through the teacher. That's why the Indian society has always respected this profession as a noble one and with great respect. However, with each passing day, there are many who are abusing this profession and are literally exploiting it in all ways possible.
Lately, another concern has also grown. There has been a sharp decline in the quality of teachers. Barring few high profile educational institutions, it is being noticed that many schools, colleges and universities are suffering from lack of experienced and quality teachers. This is causing a great blow to the students and their learning. On the other hand, the kind of candidates who are appearing for the B.Ed examinations are displaying strongly that a lot needs to be done to streamline things.
The key issue is that teaching is being considered as the last option and those who enjoy reservations and other quotas are entering into this without much hassle. But they are not equipped or prepared enough to impart education to students and this is having a compound effect on the type of students who are passing out of schools and colleges. They are unable to cope up with the real world challenges and are facing it difficult to upgrade their knowledge base.
The experts advise that a lot has to be done improving the quality and knowledge standards of the teachers. Also, eligibility conditions have to be tightened so that the deserving candidates get the jobs. Incidentally, teaching is not like working on a machine, it deals with the future of the country and how they are being shaped up. So, there is a very growing importance on teachers to feel responsible about their profession and do their best to groom the students.
