The Impact Teachers Have On The Upbringing of The Youth.
Most teachers are calling it quits and this has led to a major blow in the teaching field. Teachers leaving this field has led to frustrations to parents more specifically those whose youth are joining high school and college for the first time. This has caused by various reasons. To avoid a situation where this problem becomes extreme, all nations should do the necessary to curb it.
Debt and teacher burnout is one of the reasons why teachers are leaving the teaching profession. In terms of pay, other professionals are making much more than teachers. Due to the low salary that people in teaching field are making, they end feeling unmotivated and it also reflects on how they teach the youth. In the long run, schools end up producing youth who are not fully qualified, this will reflect on their jobs when they are employed.
Teachers have a problem in paying their bills and also fulfilling their basic needs due to their poor salary. Lack of motivation and feeling frustrated are some of the problems that teachers incur and this has a direct link on how they teach the youth. The low salary has also led to teachers changing professions, in return most learning institutions end with inadequate teaching stuff.
In order to deal with this problem, nations are encouraged to pass legislations which will favor teachers, such as increasing their pay and benefits.Nations should think of coming up with legislations such as forgiving teachers who have student loans by a certain percentage. This will encourage professionals in this field to put their best when teaching the youth. In return many youth may want to do teaching as profession in college.
Youths are faced with many challenges in high school and colleagues that they end up opting to quit. Not being able to raise the student fee and peer pressure are some of the problems that the youth face. The youths are hesitant to talk to their parents or relatives about the challenges they incur when in school. To deal with this problem we require teachers whom students can feel free talking to.
Teachers can offer advice to the youth. Teachers help youths in realizing their dream through mentorship. The youth face problems such as peer pressure, drug abuse and depression, teachers can be very helpful in showing the youth how to overcome them.
When as a nation we lack teachers who are motivated, the youth end up not having someone to guide and support them in school. The lack of someone providing guidance to the youth has resulted to some youth committing suicide.
Making the working conditions of teachers favorable, is something that every nation should prioritize in. This has a long term effect on the kind of youth a nation has and also future leaders and parents.
