Teachers can trigger reforms in education
There is a constant concern in the country about the standards of school education. Time and again, comparisons are drawn with other countries.
However, it remains a fact that children are not funnels through which unmet aspirations should be poured. Yet, there are teachers who are making a silent but significant difference. These teachers deserve attention. Other teachers can learn from them. Recently, the Centre and some state governments have begun to take note of the role
teachers can play in triggering imagination of children and put them on self-learning path. Several initiatives are needed to underline the role of teachers as triggers. A major multimedia, multi-language platform needs to be created to pool outstanding examples of pedagogies, content, styles and inspirational contribution by the teachers and local communities.
