To promise a constructive reform in the field of education, the importance of teachers in the system cannot be ignored. During all our conversation about constructive education, we focused on the principals that should lead the system itself. To promise a better level of education for our children, a general guideline should be established. this standard will promise that our children will get the right tools needed to handle with their future. Which is a necessity for the creation of a better society. In the end of it, it is our children that will have to handle with the mistake we are doing today and it is their decision that will bring us to a better or worth path.
At this post I would like to concentrate a moment in the teachers. That are in charge of the practical education of our children’s.The teacher role is extremely important and affect greatly how the students (especially kids) are perceiving the massage. We can all remember in our personal life, at least one amazing teacher that made a topic fascinating. From the other side. we all had one horrible teacher that probably made the time in her classroom intolerable. Without any doubt, what kind of information we are trying to pass to our children is extremely important. Nonetheless, the kind of teacher that is passing the information makes difference in the young people mind. Affecting their motivation and capacity to evolve positively.
Regardless of all kind of opinions hold by many people regarding the profession of public teaching. The job is demanding and hard. Handling with kids is complicated, not to talk about adolescents. They have a little amount of patient, not a lot of focus, they will always prefer to be outside or just doing something else. Not to talk about the need to of interaction with each others. Many parents cannot handle with 1-3 kids (their own kids), in a comfortable environment called home. When I say handle, I do not even refer to teach or educate, just to keep them calm and obedient.
A teacher need to handle with 20-30 kids every day. They need to teach them staff they normally do not have the will to learn by themselves. In a closed room environment, Which are not the optimal condition for educating any person. Such an occupation requires self-motivation, endless patient, a deep believe in the cause and the capacity to be flexible in front of probably the hardest audience possible.
It is true that teacher get many vacations and work less hours than a banker for example (not always true as well). But for the sake of keeping a clear head, coming every day with new patient and hold the daily dedication to handle with our kids, they deserve it without any doubt. Teachers are shaping our children and giving them the education, we do not have the time to give.
I agree that not all the teachers are perfect, but no one is. The majority of these people have chosen to take this professional path out of a personal belief. In the majority of the cases, the incapacity of a teachers to do her job, do not come from her unwillingness or incapacity. But from being exhausted or suffocated by a system, that do not support their needs. enduring a growing lack of respect from the side of the parents.
In a separate post, I will present a list that compare the average salaries of teachers around the world, compared to the average salary of their country of residence. As you can already guess, in the majority of the countries, a teacher salary is lower than the average salary of the country. Creating a better educational system, requires to establish some healthy principal that I group under the name “Constructive Education”. But without creating a better and more supportive system for the teachers, the information and philosophy imposed based on those healthy principals,will never give us what we are searching for. Which is, to promise a better education for our children’s regardless of their sex, color or race on a global scale.
