Our only hope is that more attention will be paid to children’s education.
Every single child deserves to have a motivated teacher who can help him/ her become successful and happy.
They read other parents’ and students’ reviews, visit these schools and communicate with teachers, and search for information in other available resources.
The most demanding parents check these schools’ statistics to see how they have been doing over the last five years. Take two schools: one school is considered the leading institution, whereas the second one is just a good, decent school. If indicators of a good, decent school have been regularly increasing, and the students’ performance has been improving, then parents conclude that this school has great potential.
The leading school, however, could have given away its position.
So, you will see that the leading school offers worse quality of education each year.
Obviously, there must be a reason why, for instance, in the UK teachers leave in their first year.
When teachers have no opportunities for professional development, they feel they get stuck and cannot provide children with the necessary knowledge about their discipline. They do not simply give children information about the subject.
A good specialist in any field has to constantly develop his/ her skills, and teachers must do it in the first place.
The reason why it is so important is that they do not just perform some work – they educate further generations of future specialist in many fields.
