Importance of the Teacher-Student Bond UPSC NOTE

 Issues related to teaching

Gaps in teacher training:

  • The momentum generated by the Right to Education (RTE) Act that was enacted over a decade ago has subsided. 

  • The RTE had laid down indicators of quality, and for a while, an attempt was made in a few States to use RTE-compliance criteria for both government and private schools. 

  • Since the 1990s, teacher training has become a beehive of small-time entrepreneurs. 

  • The regulatory structure of the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) has not been able to enforce its meticulously worked out norms. 

  • In 2008, the Supreme Court of India appointed a commission under the late Justice J.S. Verma to examine the various ailments of teacher training.

  • His magnificent report, submitted in 2012, offered some hope that the training of teachers would gain status and attention, but that hope proved short-lived. 

  • Improvement of quality by the inspection raj proved an illusion. 

  • Last month, the Supreme Court passed its verdict in a case concerned with teacher training at the primary level. 

  • The Court said that the NCTE has not applied its mind while allowing Bachelor of Education (BEd) degree holders to teach at the primary level — BEd is traditionally associated with secondary education).

Prejudiced behavior and physical and mental harassment towards students:

Professional conduct for teachers

Teacher Commission report: 

  • It was chaired by D.P. Chattopadhyaya. 

  • The report showed how far school teaching in India was from standards and ethics that one might regard as professional. 

  • Many decades have passed since that report was submitted and hardly anyone reads it now. 

  • A summary of recommendations is available on the Internet for the benefit of students facing an examination such as BEd without attending classes. 

  • It is hardly cynical to say that Chattopadhyaya’s recommendations are quite irrelevant. 

  • The new ethos of education, promotes easy instrumentality, and never reflection or introspection. 

  • The Chattopadhyaya report had advocated a well-read, thoughtful teacher who is conscious of her decisions and actions. 

  • That view found limited traction in the Indian system, especially in the bureaucracy governing it. It continued to regard the teacher as a minor functionary. 

  • During the 1990s, the compulsions of structural adjustment led to the loss of what little dignity teachers of small children had enjoyed. 

  • North Indian States had no problem opting to recruit teachers en masse on contractual or ad hoc basis under euphemistic titles. 

  • Reckless privatisation implied that market laws should prevail in deciding emoluments.

  • Enrolment grew, but there was no lasting improvement in working conditions. 

  • Under the influence of the global policy adviser James Tooley, low-budget private schools multiplied, enabling State governments to merge their own smaller schools in the name of rationalization.
