Answer: A person who teaches our children to read and write.
Question: Is this what should be expected of a teacher to teach today?
Answer: I don’t see any teacher teaching anything else.
Question: What would you like a teacher to teach?
Answer: It should be a different question. If I want a teacher to teach something else, society has to be different and parents have to be different. They should know what children lack and need to learn in life, and so, parents should also educate them. A teacher is a public representative who should educate the public, the new generation, correctly.
Question: What should a teacher’s salary be?
Answer: It should be the highest possible. No other profession is more important than teaching.
Question: And compared to a doctor?
Answer: A doctor is less. A doctor cares for the body while a teacher helps students develop their soul.
Question: How should parents relate to teachers?
Answer: With respect. A teacher is just below God because he teaches us how to relate to God. A teacher is a guide, he is the one who opens and teaches about the correct attitude to society, to life and death, to everything. A teacher is actually the representative of the upper force here in this world.
