Train Teachers like Doctors
In our country, the education department has responded with shortsighted policies that lower the bar for new teachers, making it easier to enter the profession, which has paved the way for more people with little or no training to become teachers. In medicine, we long ago recognized that significant study and practice under the guidance of a skilled practitioner are necessary to ensure that doctors are qualified to serve the public. Minimal training for teachers is simply not good enough. If we are serious about improving public education which is essential for the development of the country, we need to invest in our aspiring teachers and ensure they get sustained practice with real coaching and support.
The Maulana Out to ‘Reform’ Pakistani Education
If there is one thing of which there is no shortage in the Islamic Republic, our Fortress of Islam, it is Islamic or Quranic studies. We can complain about everything – lack of good healthcare, lack of good government schools, poverty, corruption, pure drinking water – but no one in his right mind can complain of a lack of Islamic studies. We are awash with them. That these studies, reading the Quran by rote or studying it in translation, have not the slightest effect on our collective behavior is of course a different matter. As upholders of ritual and the outward observance of the faith no one comes close to beating us. But in everyday life all this passion and zeal are kept to one side and each of us, according to ability and capacity, cuts what corners he/she can.
