" We want education by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, the intellect is expanded and by which one can stand on one's own feet " Swami Vivekananda

" In Knowledge leads to unity; Ignorance to diversity "  Sri Ramakrishna

My Mother was a school teacher and father a professor at the University Department of Chemical Technology, Bombay. We grew up in a house with plenty of books. The more one reads, the more the mind thinks. What running is to the body, reading is to the mind. Hence,for a well educated society, it all begins at home and your immediate environment.  How your children behave reflects your family value, your faith and then the school system,and thats how we grew up.However,over the years these fundamental values have been forgotten.  

Society has taken for granted that the school system and the baby sitter  ( both the TV and in person) will take care of every thing. Bullying is another quality that children pick up by watching their parents. 
We need a workforce of teachers who are passionate and want to teach. They should be rewarded based on the improvements of the student. When you have gifted children, the teachers have to work ten times harder to keep such students motivated. Most principals are project managers, with excellent communication skills. Our Teachers are Subject Matter Experts and we should let them do what they are best at. 
However with  the grass, we get weeds and the few bad teachers are giving a bad rap for all those wonderful passionate teachers that I have met,through my daughter and son in the last twenty years. I know for sure they deserve better. 
School Administrative costs are very high, shared services will bring administrative costs down. It should be at the State and Federal level. Each school teacher, who teaches the class, knows best.  Empower our passionate teachers, not tie their hands. I always told my kids, "As soon as you enter the class room, your teacher owns you. You have no rights, you are there to learn, with your ears and eyes. If you go in with a preconceived notion than you will never learn".
