Teaching Career: Why Not a Well Paid Profession in India?

Teaching Career: Well Paid or Not?

This article is about the teaching career and deliberates over reasons why teaching is not a well paid profession in Indian scenario.

Among   the   greatest of all services that can be rendered by men to almighty God, is the education and training of children, so that they can foster by grace in the way of salvation, growing like pearls of divine bounty in the shell of education and will be one day the jewel in the crown of abiding glory.

The teacher is a dynamic force of the school. A school without a teacher is like a body without the soul , a skeleton without blood and flesh, A shadow without substance.

There is no greater need for cause of education today than the need for strongly manly men and motherly women as teacher for the young. Being a teacher is being in one scary position.

Those who educate the children are more to be honored than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, that art of living well.”

Teacher show right path to student and also prepares a human for the further development of the nation .So no doubt, it is the noble than any other profession.

Let’s talk about why teaching is not well paid profession in India ‘It is difficult to have a decent lifestyle in a teaching job and hence some teachers need to relay on tuition money to support their family.’

This is not just any quote, but plight of several teachers in India. It is sad to associate plight with people who impart knowledge and educate the new generation, but this is truly an irony.

But with low salaries why would any graduate want to plunge in teaching when one can make twice the amount of money by working at a BPO? In fact private tutoring is more lucrative than a school teaching job in India.

For me every job on earth can be a noble one if you do it for a noble cause. Do your job well so that result may at least help a single person without causing harm to any. Indian does not consider teaching as a good profession.

This has been going on for years because of few reasons like; low salary structure, it is a menial job. People join this profession because of good vacations, no pressure to perform, no accountability.

Teachers do a lot for their students, teacher are an extremely important facet of any society for a multitude of reason. Teachers are the people who educate the youth of society who in turn become the leaders of the next generation of people.

Teacher are the people who are teaching children and imparting knowledge upon them in their most impressionable years, so teachers certainly have a significant mark on the development of young children and even old children alike as they are teaching them and helping them develop their knowledge so that they can go on in life and be responsible and productive member of society.

Teachers should be well paid because they are boon for us.
