Do Teachers Really Have it Easy?

Uma Mahadevan-Dasgupta in a thought-provoking post: In the Classroom, says:

I’ve always felt that the schoolrooms ought to be the living, joyful centre of a community. That primary education should really, literally, be primary.

Do read this excellent post. And all the links that it points to.

Here's a related post that I had made earlier: Killing Higher Education in India.
