The Dearth Of The Teaching Profession

14

Good day naijaworlders There is something that bothers my heart and that is the neglect of the teaching profession in this nation,I feel for all the teachers in this nation,starting from the primary,post primary and tertiary institution, I feel so much for them seeing the way it is being rubbished and treated with disdain both by the government, private individuals and institutions. I could remember those days that teachers are held in high esteem, I could recollect when teachers are honoured by students and by the community, being a teacher was a noble profession and admired by many,in those days they are solicited by many because of their versatility and intelligence But this day the reverse is the case as today in this particular nation unlike their counterparts in the Western world,they get peanuts as salary, get insulted by pupils,students and their parents,used and abused,the government treating them as if they don't matter,not knowing that these are the groups that every other profession fall on. When you have a hungry teacher,he would become angry and he won't deliver,if you assault him,he may become discouraged and may drop off. I don't think we treat teachers well enough in this part of the world,we need a rethink and see how we can help take care of our teachers,let's encourage them and see how we can make the teaching profession attractive again,we are loosing if we don't, I seize this opportunity to appreciate all the teachers doing immensely well in the lives of people committed into their hands.Teachers are great and there is no controversy.
