Teacher’s job is not just to interpret the world but to change it
- Mr. V Sasi, Deputy Speaker of Kerala Assembly
“The challenges faced by our students in the twenty-first century are so overwhelming that teachers have to be retooled and provided with the necessary resources and incentives as they rededicate themselves to perform their expanding roles as educators. They must accept this challenge and be true revolutionaries in the battle to ensure that our young students become valuable citizens in a new, caring, and tolerant society. The teacher’s job is not just to interpret the world but to change it”. said Mr. V.Sasi, Deputy speaker of Kerala Assembly while inaugurating the GSP training for teachers of South Kerala Diocese held at LMS higher Secondary School, Amaravila, Neyattinkara.
