Education. Quality education is what Indian system of education is looking for. Free education up to primary level though have endorsed the message of importance of literacy , yet a lot many things has to be done to bring out the primary quality of education in the crust.
The government is set to recruit about 5,000 teachers to improve the standards of education.The recruitment is a mix of certificate, diploma and degree holders, a realisation of the various skills teachers receive in their training and recognition of the need for these skills at various levels of teaching.
Teaching comes with its challenges but that does not mean they are insurmountable, among them, that of being posted to rural areas where we have also seen some of them leave for a number of reasons. The supply of teachers is said to be better in urban areas than in rural areas, where we have come across a teacher manning grades one to seven. How do we expect development to get to such an area if there are inadequate teachers to teach the children?
Therefore, the teachers who have found themselves posted to rural areas should consider themselves as advocates of development whose sole goal should be to impart knowledge to the underprivileged children and mentor them to appreciate the importance of education.
“We urge Government to quickly place the new teachers on the payroll so that they get their salaries and allowances, especially the rural hardship allowance. This will help them to quickly settle in their job,” says V Mehta, a school teacher.
Government should also continue to improve the rural areas and make them attractive for most workers, including teachers. This will enhance the development we talk about.Teachers, here is an opportunity for you. If the rural area is calling, please find yourself there. For you, this is the beginning of a great career.
