Quality and Love - Nitin Sharma


Quality:

"Inclusive, good quality education is the foundation for dynamic and equitable Societies."   

                                                                                                                                  -Desmond Tutu

Quality education provides the foundation for equity in society. Quality education enables people to develop all their attributes and skills to achieve their potential as human beings and community members.

Good quality education is essential for gaining the best knowledge and developing modernization in society. The country's future depends on a quality education provided in every school, which plays a significant role in student education.

Through quality education, individuals can seek better job opportunities, progress with sustainable livelihoods, and have a healthy lifestyle. Best-delivered education spurs innovative minds.

In our school, we practice, preach and promote the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and the goal of the main focus, along with all others, is SDG4, Quality Education, intending to provide quality education to all. Educators put in their best efforts to make that happen in the classrooms, and no stone is left unturned.

While teaching in the classrooms, we as educators come across different types of students. Some may be excellent at doing their homework and class work, while some may be the 'do-it-later' students. But the teacher has an equal eye for all. All the students are similar, and he/she cannot ignore those who aren't good in the academic aspect or the ones who lag in completing their tasks. To deal with such students, a lot of patience is required.

I'd like to add an instance of when I encountered a situation like this. Some students of a class I taught in the previous years fell into the example of 'never-completing-their-notebooks-on-time' students. It was a challenging task to get their notebooks and check them. Not completing their notebooks and tasks was one thing, but all of them were very active students.

One of them, Sartaj, was good at playing band and headed the school band, while another, Aarush, was an NCC cadet and was great at parade. They are very cooperative students, always ahead in taking any responsibility but the last in submitting their assignments. I was never strict and harsh on them but rather appreciated them for the qualities they had. Instead, we agreed on a deadline by which they would finally make submissions.

Love:

"Where there is love, there is life."

Love is the energy of life. Love has its many forms. A mother loves his child, a teacher loves his students, our love for Mother Nature, a soldier's love for his nation and various other forms. Without love, this life is not possible, and the true joy of life cannot be cherished.

Nowadays, many students somehow engage in similar activities at a very young age, such as meeting at hidden places or exchanging gifts with their young lovers.

Here, I would like to share about two students From IX and XI. Avni and Sagar. They used to meet each other on the stairs or during school recess. Our school counsellor was requested to please counsel these students; she talked so well. Even the class teacher and coordinator tried to make them understand their age was inappropriate. Your aim should be to study and achieve your goal. Later on, you can think about it, and after some friendly sessions with the teacher, they were not seen again at the hidden places, and both started to do well in their studies.
