I cannot recall what programme it was on national television on a particular day, a teacher was on live TV and could not speak correct English. It was shameful to say the least. I’m not saying everyone must learn to speak correct English, but as the official language and what is used mainly in public circles and schools, a teacher should have basic knowledge of how to speak and write good English.
All of these things should be checked because it affects productivity. And remember, the teachers are in care of your children. It’s like parenting in extension and as such we should be interested in them and their track record in teaching. Who these teachers are should matter a lot!
We should learn to appreciate teachers who we feel have done much to impact our children in the right way. Doing such can inspire them to do more. It’s not an easy task.
