Teachers,Plumbers and our children

A society which ensures that even a plumber earns more than a school or even a university teacher should stop pretending that it worries more about the private baggage of intellectual and emotional clutter in the minds of its children than it does about material clutter in public or private places. Our concern and love for our children is reflected in the respect we pay to their teachers. As for teachers themselves, there is no better way for them to understand their job than to see in the face of each one of their students the face of their own children. It is impossible to teach without first being in love with one's students. Love is a critical component of a teacher's art. Knowledge and wisdom come next
