Flourishing national development and a society truly prosperous with knowledge all begins from its teachers. While the role of knowledge and a skilled society with visions and aspirations in the success of a nation cannot be stressed enough, it should also be remembered that knowledge cannot be acquired if it is not sought and received through the help of the teacher.
This is why everyone should put efforts into seeking as much knowledge as possible, and appreciate the teacher's importance in guiding us and the generations to come, to become knowledgeable and morally upright people.
Knowledge received without a teacher's guidance can be compared to a blind man walking without his stick. Because of this, teachers need to have a high level of commitment towards their duties and responsibilities which have been entrusted to them. The teacher is a judge who gives marks and ratings.
He differentiates children on the basis of their intellectual, and often social skills in preparation for the social and occupational roles which they eventually play.

The teacher is a representative of the society who inculcates moral precepts. In the development of a country, great attention has to be paid to education and learning, as well as good morals, and nobody is more suited to assist in this process than the humble teacher.
Without teachers, both knowledge and morals would suffer. The role of the teacher is a multi-faceted one comprising academic, pedagogical and social roles. Academic roles comprise teaching, counselling and supervisory roles while pedagogical roles include instructional, evaluation and facilitating roles.

He is their ideal. He can lead them anywhere. During their early education, the students tend to determine their aims in life and their future plans, in consultation with their teachers.

A corrupt and incompetent teacher is not only a bad individual, but also the harbinger of a corrupt and incompetent generation.
A nation with corrupt teachers is a nation at risk; every coming day announces the advent of its approaching destruction. Teachers thereforehave to play a cardinal role in the building up of the character of the next generation.Teachers shoulder heavy responsibility in nation-building - Kamalanathan Bernama | May 14, MYT Teachers are capable of changing the fate of the community and country.
