VALUING OF TEACHERS IN LEADERSHIP
Our society today has a experienced a shift in it's value system and this has resulted in downgrading careers and work that were once considered with dignity.
One of such work is teaching. There was a time society respected teachers during the early years of independence and they were even revered in rural areas.
A parent would bring an unruly child to order by simply saying " I will report you to your teacher" and the child immediately sits up. There are situations where the teachers are honorably invited to the homes of their students by the parents for a feast but today the opposite is the case as they are even insulted by parents in front of the students.
What has happened over the years? The values within the family and society that once embraced the knowledge, love and discipline that teaching brings to children is fading away.
Henceforth, teachers who will survive the ridicule must have a vision, passion and call to educate the next generation of leaders and help bring back the honor deserving of the teaching profession.
This is because the great nation we all desire lies in the quality delivery and leadership of this breed of teachers.
