CHANDIGARH: An Awareness workshop for teachers on education in human values organised here on Saturday by Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisation, Haryana and Chandigarh at Manav Mangal School, Panchkula dwelled on the importance of human values in education and how to make educators aware of these values.
Ashok Yadav, administrator, Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) set the tone of the workshop when he said that human values were eternal and lasting while morality kept changing.
More than 500 teachers present in the auditorium cheered him when he quoted one example after the other from daily life incidents to bring home the point.
We should act more as a comprehensive teacher than confining ourselves to be a subject-only teacher. Try to be inspiring and corrective, than be fault-finding or complaining, Yadav exhorted.
He asked teachers to be role models for their students so as to inspire them, motivate them and to lead them by example. Be innovative, keep abreast of happenings around and understand the students well as every child is special and can do wonders in future, he said.
Regional officer, CBSE, DR Yadav, who was the chief guest at the workshop, blamed both parents and teachers for the present mess in the education system.
It was unfortunate that while teachers were taking to the profession not by choice but by default, parents too had become very intolerant and were always complaining about the behaviour of teachers, he said.
He strongly advocated that teachers deserved to be treated better by the society and deserved better wages and improved living conditions too.
