READER'S VIEWS (The Freeman) - July 13, 2019 - 12:00am

A lot of things have changed!

People evolve, and so does behavior.

Students have changed the way they learn. Parents have changed the way they parent. Teachers have changed the way they teach. Educating young minds today has revolutionized.

The home, the community, and the school are the essential components in a student's development. The culture in each of the area and the way students react to inevitable changes around them shapes their behavior.

This era of advances in technology should never lessen the effort of students to endeavor in their studies and to value hard work to be a functional citizen and an asset to one's community.

This nerve-racking unconventional family set-up should never impede parents to support and act as the first teachers of their children especially of good manners and proper values.

This very demanding time should never weaken the positive drive and motivation of teachers to be their best. Teachers should be essentially motivated to be the best that she/he can possibly be. Teachers are the forefront of delivering the programs to the learners thus “sharpening the saw” is of paramount importance.

Above anything else, the quality of teachers will have a great bearing on the quality of students. The learners of today need only the best in every teacher, not just because they deserve it but most importantly they needed it.

It is a sad note to read issues on the deteriorating quality of education and pinpointing who is to blame. Teachers’ woes on task load, students' misbehavior and irresponsible parents.

But no matter how things revolutionize in the educational set-up, with all the support from the government, scholarships, and aid from private sectors, and different educational programs of DepEd, learners of today are more privileged, parents are more complacent.

We just have to learn how to listen more, do our share and be responsive to cope with the demands and changes of time.
