We need TEACHER: Talented- Educated-Adorable-Charming-Helpful-Encouraging-Responsible.

In the context of human civilization, teaching has always been of special importance not only in comparison to other professions, but has also been the basis of all other professions. 

Today, social change, especially the rapid presence of technology, is redefining the teacher-student relationship. 

At the same time, the institution of the teacher is also being recognised, in the context of the classroom, society and the wider world. 

As a result, the formal role and area of ​​coverage of the teacher is acquiring new dimensions in the present as compared to the past. In the midst of all this, the teacher is still influencing the students with his qualities, actions and behavior and on the basis of that he is also creating the future of the society and the country.

A teacher has been given the right by the society to intervene directly and indirectly in the life of his/het students, to show the dreams of the future to the students and prepare them to make those dreams come true by enriching their inherent potential. 

In doing so, it also shapes values ​​and attitudes. Remembering Vashishtha, Chanakya, Rabindranath Tagore, Ramakrishna Paramhansa, Swami Vivekananda, Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan etc. creates an ideal and bright image of Guru in the mind. 

It should be known that Teacher’s Day is celebrated only on the birthday of Radhakrishnan.

The moral and ethical consequences of teacher’s behavior in the field of education determine the moral maturity and wisdom of the society. 

That’s why high criteria and standards are set to judge the teacher, which people of other profession do not accept easily. 

Ethical qualities are expected from teachers. They are expected to discriminate between right and wrong in their conduct. 

Competence, efficiency and quality will be reflected in their behaviour. They will set an example of commitment, dedication to work, integrity, honesty and unbiased conduct. The quality of the teacher is the most important basis for the success of the student. 

Thinking like this, the parent has been keeping a sense of innate respect for the teacher and the teacher in his mind.

Earlier a Guru was mentally and practically revered as a person who does good to others and has a vision for the future. 

He/She was no less important than his parents. He/She was the source of inspiration for the student and such a benefactor who used to show him the way to go on the right path. 

It was his/her duty to make them a good human being and a good citizen of the country by building their character.

Guru’s high credibility in the society was also because he could fearlessly speak about public interest without any involvement, but now this image is changing. 

Only a few teachers are able to protect their original image. Today, by reaching the 21st century, not only has there been a change in the content of knowledge, but the methods of teaching have also changed. 

Salaries in aided education centers have gone up, but attachment and interest in teaching work in general has decreased. 

Engaging in work and taking it seriously is sliding down the priority list for teachers. The moral capacity and capability of the teacher is now becoming rare.

Suspicions of misconduct are rising and trust is waning in teachers’ treatment of students. It is regrettable that over the years there has been an increase in the cases of harassment of students in many institutions. 

Uncontrolled interference of internet media has created a big challenge in the way of healthy and safe educational environment. 

In such a situation, it has become necessary to establish the relationship between ethics and education process with the spirit of justice and honesty. 

Adherence to social values ​​and standards, quality teaching-learning process, honest and fair solutions knowing the needs of the students have become the biggest challenge today.

In today’s context, there is also a need for an effective policy for proper use of technology in various aspects of education like teaching, evaluation and expression. 

The educational context from primary level to higher education is divided into categories of private, government and semi-government institutions and there is a terrible level of discrimination among them. 

There are big differences and discrepancies in their rules and regulations, opportunities available to teachers, workload and salary etc. In spite of being of central importance, very few institutions have an autonomous existence of the teacher. 

Today most of the educational institutions are running on the trust of ad hoc teachers and are becoming hollow.

To give shape to the ambitious dream better Education Policy a permanent arrangement of teachers is necessary. 

The way the entire education system is in the grip of commercialization, one result of it is exposed from the story of Kota, the coaching town, where the tendency of suicide is spreading among the students. 

In fact, education is still very low on the agenda of our national development planning. Leaving education to God, investment is being made in other things. 

Education is becoming a business despite saying ‘Sa Vidya Ya Vimuktaye’. 

In the fabric of market and business, the teacher has become an integral part of this business. 

Only by establishing the dignity of the teacher will the resolutions of the immortal age be fulfilled.
