two teachers for four hundred students

Two “qualified” teachers that is.

Government Degree College for Women, Frere Road, that has about 400 commerce students in classes XI, XII, BCom Part-I and BCom Part-II while there are only two teachers with MCom degrees to teach them

The commerce education field is suffering from an acute shortage of teachers at various colleges in the province. Why? Because everyone you know wants to become an ACCA, a CA or an BCom graduate, since (at this moment) they think it pays a lot. The same which happened to computer science field in the late 90’s.

Those teachers who can teach, in my opinion, would much rather want to run tution centers or coaching classes rather than become employees of the colleges. More pay and less bs.

So what becomes of the students who actually want to study? Pay through the nose, or get a second rate education. Typical of the education system in our country.

But hey~ Atleast we’re getting quality text books printed abroad now!

    The only solution to this is … increase the salary of teachers.

    All over the world ( in developed nations at least) only the brightest are inducted in the education sector so that children get top notch knowledge and coaching.In our case it is exactly the opposite as teaching is the last option in priority of the young entering the job market.No one here wants to learn for the learning’s sake and only want a shortcut to the riches overnight.Most of the students are enrolled in the degree programs, which are not according to their interests and temperament,just because everyone else is doing so.I think we should redefine the word “Professional”(which to most of the people means only Doctors,accountants or soldiers).Why not painters,writers, interior designers or graphic designers? One of the most important post that is missing in our schools and colleges is that of educational consultant or child psychologists who should help guide the students in making proper choices as children themselves are not mature and experienced enough to make correct decisions.
    Like artists teachers are also born not made.Not everyone can be a good teacher,it is something that is God gifted and needs a lot of patience and understanding of the behavioural psychology apart from the knowledge of the subject.Given the varied background and social status of students at our schools and colleges the task becomes even more demanding and saintly.The promise by President John. F. Kennedy to land man on moon within ten years revolutionised the whole American Education system in the 60’s.In Japan the admission to a good university is a matter of life and death for students as that defines their whole carrier path We’ll have to structure our system according to present day needs with as much zeal and conviction as possible since it is something which is uncompromisable.The system should offer every help and choice to the students and rest should be their drive and hardwork how to excel.No one should be able to blame the system for not giving the opportunity.

    udass: we get all the ‘highest’ claims because maybe we dont have people educated enough to debunk the claims…. :(
