ITS NOT HOW MUCH, BUT HOW THAT MATTERS!!Publish Date: 09-May-2021 08:17:42
I came across this post during my usual idle scroll time on face book (I think we all are getting plenty of it these days!) and it simply transformed my leisure time into one of skeptic introspection and contemplation.
It’s a picture that speaks volumes and we can analyze it in many ways. Being an Educationist to the core, all I see in the picture is the future. What we notice today is the disinterest from the parents concerning the education of the young minds. The only issues which matter to them seem to be fees and facilities by the Schools. On the other hand is the disgruntled teacher, who gets no support or encouragement from the society. The only concern for society at large is to stop Schooling, cancel Exams and of late even ban online teaching!!
If this is the “New Normal” then this post is the “Real New Future”! The young work force of tomorrow IS going to be in such a situation. Half knowledge, disjointed knowledge, sieved knowledge (course deletions) all is going to hamper the youth of tomorrow. The World is surely moving back a decade if the Education systems across the Country and the World are not given due attention soon. A teacher may not adorn the white dress as a frontline warrior, but is sitting in front of that laptop or phone each day for hours trying to ensure continuity in the flow of knowledge for the young minds. They not just deserve our gratitude but we owe it to our children to ensure they acquire that information.
The big, fancy talks and policies about blended education, multidisciplinary education, art integration in education, morality and empathy in education are all falling flat on their faces as we have put the entire Educational needs of our children on the back burners.
We need doctors, we need engineers, we need scientists, we need collaborators, we need tactful businessmen, we need good sound human resources for the future and if the foundations of these are going to be faulty and weak, not only are all the inventions and technology of today going to become obsolete but also no new creative innovation can be expected.
