There was a time when teachers were the respectable gems of society and were considered next to god but in terms of economy, they got very little remuneration for the respectable job of teaching the future of nation and moulding their insight and future.
With time, the chase began to run after money and people started opting for those jobs which had attractive salary and nobody inspired to become a teacher, rather people went to teaching profession when they could not get any offer or there was no way out.
In mid-80’s, few ministers tried to peep into the pathetic condition of school teachers and professors and revised and enhanced their pitiable salary and attractive perks were added along and it improved the status and lifestyle of teachers.
The condition of teachers improved but there was a remarkable downfall in number of students in government schools. Private schools mushroomed into the towns and cities and people flocked to private schools for their kids. Even low income groups people too started sending their kids to private schools and more and more people avoided government schools.
The height of disappointment is that the even the kids of government school teachers are studying in private schools and they shell out good sum for them.
The question hovers in my mind every now and then, why the teachers are not admitting their kids in their school?
They don’t have faith on government schools.
Why the government is spending lot and lot on schools, teachers, mid-day meals and other govt. aids when there are few students and the teachers too are drawing fat salary for time pass and the appointed teachers are not efficient enough in terms of education and knowledge.
I feel that the government should introspect the whole system of government schools and rectify the shortcomings and improve the whole system of education.
Government is spending huge sum in the field of education but are the fruits been reaped of the seeds sown…No..A big No.
Private schools are multiplying in number and the kids are been admitted to the private institution. Nobody wish to send their wards in government schools, even the labour class workers are sending their kids to private institution and are spending beyond reach.
The views are solely mine and the Takes are my introspection and observations.
