गुरु गोविंद दोनों खड़े, काके लागूं पाँय ।
बलिहारी गुरु आपनो, गोविंद दियो मिलाय ।

यह कह कर संत कबीर ने गुरु यानि अध्यापक को भगवान से भी ऊपर का स्थान दिया था। लेकिन आज का अध्यापक भगवान नहीं बल्कि शैतान बन कर रह गया है। ~ Rakesh Raman

The new Vice President of India, M. Venkaiah Naidu, said Tuesday that we need teachers who have the required competence, confidence and commitment to make a difference to the educational landscape of our country.

Naidu has expressed his desire to have good teachers because he knows that with their incompetence and corrupt minds, today’s teachers in India are hell-bent to destroy a complete generation of children.

Others have similar sentiment about the poor quality of education and the responsibility of teachers in the country.

Recently, for example, Delhi’s education minister Manish Sisodia said the tragedy of government schools is that most reforms are poorly implemented and the quality of education in schools is deteriorating. Obviously, teachers are responsible for the deteriorating quality of education.

“Today, on Teachers’ Day, we reverentially remember the first Vice President of India, Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan a great teacher, an intellectual giant and an eloquent exponent of Hindu thought,” said Naidu, who is a Hindu politician and aspires to make India a Hindu Rashtra (a country only for people who belong to the Hindu religion).

He added that the focus of education should be on academic excellence and skills for self-employment or gainful employment.

Naidu said that teachers have a huge responsibility for India to achieve 100 per cent literacy in the next five years, adding that India’s value system, culture and heritage should be accorded due importance in the syllabus.

“Today all teachers must pledge to transform classrooms into hubs of joyful learning and raise the education system to a much higher level,” Naidu advised.

Important Note: Most Indian politicians who harangue to improve the education standards in the country are themselves either totally illiterate or do not possess sufficient knowledge about any subject of academic relevance.
