Abstract :

The importance of a teacher in the educational process is unquestionable. However, the entire edifice of teacher is weak and ineffective. An effective teacher is amongst the foremost factors contributing to education improvement, which we are trying hard to achieve. After independence, crores of rupees have been spent to open new schools and provide them with adequate equipment and other facilities. Lacs of rupees have been spent on committees and commissions to deliberate and recommend methods of bringing about qualitative improvement in education. As a result, workers in the educational field have endeavoured to develop better curriculum, text/ books and teaching aids. Considerable effort has been made to devise teaching. But, all this is of no use and the development targets are bound to remain unachieved unless schools are staffed with effective teachers. It is they who influence and shape the competence and character of boys and girls.
