Teaching is one of the most noble and best professions but the least paying. At least in this part of the world. But the teachers today do not get the kind of respect they were getting a decade or two ago. And very few of todays students want to enter this profession.

Hi Mayka, i ageree with each and every words of U i wish i could deny that And sure that was lvely time when teachers were respected by core of hearts and students were treated as their kids and they taught them not only bookish knowledge but also try to make them better humans and citizens Teacher student was nice ansd pure relation which is tooo commercialized now. Take care

We had a very good relationship in school with our teachers. We would talk to them as a guide, a mother, a friend....we knew we could ask them any thing we wanted to know and we would always get the answer

I completely agree with your views that it the 'teachers' while tell us how to shape in our life. It is they - who tell us, who to 'read', 'write' and 'communciate'. Their invaluable contribution in our life cannot be forgotten. The importance of a teacher and teaching will always remain very high. It is said that a 'Teacher' is next to God. There is an old peom of an Indian Saint Kabirdas which says that if you happen to face your 'teacher' and 'your parents' simultaneously, whom would you give preference. It is further said that - we must bow our head to the teacher and touch his feat, as it is he, who has made us a 'man'. Good Post!

It is very rarely that we see students bowing to touch the feet of the teachers nowadays. They do not respect their teachers as much as they should. Some o fthe fault lies with the parents and society too because very often we ourselves crib about the teachers and their way of teaching. So how do we expect the children to respect the same teachers?

I completely agree with you that parents are also to be blamed, if students do not pay respect to their teachers. I always tell my kids that they must give respect to their teacher(s) and should not undermine his/her value. But I've seen some teachers are such that they teach in a very routine manner, hardly getting connecting to children, in the process they lose students' respect. Having said that teachers must always be respect, I believe.

How lovely to have a Teacher's Day in India, Mayka! My husband is a teacher, but in this country they seem only to be criticised. Our government does not value education the same way yours does, and has handed the responsibility of running schools to the principals - which just isn't working. At the moment, teachers are trying to fight for better conditions for the students' sake - for instance, they want qualified teachers for appropriate classes, rather than, for instance, an English teacher babysitting a Maths class because there is nobody else. Therefore the general public are inconvenienced when teachers strike, and call them lazy, underworked (long holidays) and overpaid. Happy Teacher's Day to all the teachers in India - and in the rest of the world, too!

Hi Guybrush Here is a bouquet of flowers for your husband. I agree the teachers are underpaid and wish they would get a better deal from the Government. After all happy teachers would make happy students.

Yes. on 5th September in India we celebrate teachers day to comemmorate our great teacher Dr.Radhakrishan. Teachers have great role in each and every child as they make the child how to behave firstly. They show them the right path of life,as per their teaching we all grow up. Their loving care and their responsibility to guide us through books and texts all made us to cry when we were a students in X std farewell party. Even teachers were crying. Now my son and daughter carry gifts and flowers to give their teacher on this day. They enjoy a lot by cutting cakes and making small party. Thank you for starting this discussion and Thanks to my all teachers and the teachers on mylot.

I too remember how both the teachers and students cried for our farewell party. I had some very good teachers in school who are still teaching there. I would also make it a point to send something for my kids teachers when they were in school.

Happy Teacher's DaY TO ALL. This is special day. And I do hope that we develop a little more empathy and respect for the teachers. They are the most left out part of the society. I agree, teaching has become more of what they earn rather than the old values of imparting true knowledge. But there are still good, idealistic teachers who make a difference. And we grow thus. The society grow thus. Thanks dear.

Hi Mou, Nice to have you back on my discussions. Missed you for a couple of days. Teachers do need a lot more respect than what they are getting. Just wish we had more good and idealistic teachers today.

A very good discussion, dedicated to all teachers. I always try to attend my school alumni meets and keep in touch with my teachers. All teachers are great in my opinion as they are the force behind our success. My mom has been a teacher for over 15 years. She never takes a day off saying 'my children need me' !! That's her passion as a teacher :)
