When we were kids, one of the basic educations in home was, that, the teachers are like your spiritual parents ñ someone, who deserves respect perhaps after your folks or even more. No matter how evil some of them seemed at that time but not a single harsh word was appreciated neither the complains, unless, they really really needed to be addressed and were valid. This perhaps developed our mind in such a way that even after years, when there was no one to ask, no one to stop, no one to say this is wrong, we still kept our anger in controlled no matter how crazy we thought some of the teachers were at the university. Sadly, things have changed; one of the Asst. Professor of Karachi University was beaten.

I believe crazy politics has a lot to do with this, which we have empoisoned in our educational institutes. Secondly the early home education I was talking about, when you, as a parent wonít respect your childís teacher, how can you expect your kid to do so? School teachers specially, are looked down in our society.


On a similar (as related to education) but separate note, Imran Khan will be the new Chancellor of Bradford University, the official ceremony will be held next month. What a personality this man has.

Another similar (this time related to personality) but separate note one of the most gorgeous lady Angelina Julie and one of the most Handsome guy, Brad Pit will visit earth quake victims in Pakistan. XTASY has posted the details here.

    That basically says a lot about the state of Education in Pakistan.

    I think, if the teachers deserve it, they should get it. teachers should be no exception. afterall, they teach students for the sake of money and not for the sake of spreading knowledge and education. what’s so holy about that? perhaps its time to shed the notion where we believe that teachers are like our “spiritual parents ñ someone, who deserves respect perhaps after your folks or even more”.

    I 50% agree with Zubair. Not all teachers work for the sake of money.

    But yes, students r customers of services provided by teacher. If he is no good, he should be kicked out. Sadly, teachers job in KHI or NED univ is like job for life. The worst kind of elements r in the teachers community. When students felt that the teachers r not doing their job, and the admin is silent spectatot, they take matters in their own hands.

    But off course, I am not aware of things in this particular episode.

    I also think the majority of teacher here are in it for the money and not the love of teaching. Thats why every child in this city (even those going to supposedly good schools) has to take tutions from the same teachers privately. If the teachers (and school administrators) were doing their jobs properly, students would need such so much extra tutions.

    I study at karachi university and in all the months I’ve spent over there I haven’t a encountered single teacher who, as you people put it, teach for the ‘sake of money’. They don’t. Alright? Atleast the ones I’ve encountered uptil now don’t(and I’ve met plenty) They’re willing to teach you after class, to answer your questions related to their subjects and otherwise. And the one teacher who wasn’t regular for the classes we had with him, we wrote a letter to the dean and the matter was solved within a week. within a week.
    And you, zuabir, say that “they should get it?” They should get beaten up because they wanted to stick to the rules. What a laugh. what kind of crappy place did you grow up and studied at? You’d want someone from your family to be hit by people who’re only there to cause disturbances because they decided to adhere to the rules and you didn’t want to follow those rules? That’s sad. very very sad. And telling.

    The money teachers’ get is not great – in any country, so to say they teach for the money is ridiculous. Yes, agreed, they are there for employment, but it takes a certain degree of dedication, belief and responsibility to continue to work in environments which are increasingly ungrateful and hostile.
    Secondly, to mirror what Hira said (well said too), no one, no matter what profession they are in ‘should get it’. Violence in any capacity is not acceptable.

    there are bad apples everywhere and teaching is not different . having said that nothing justifies beating up on a teacher for an attendance issue .
