Celebration from the day of teacher in fact is giving worthy to knowledge, science and awareness, appreciation from devoted human that named as teacher.
Teacher is a free human that opens the way of prosperity before society.
In present situation of the country, while the doors of thousands schools have reopened millions of students entered into the education centers, with all of these a number of eligible students are deprived from learning knowledge because of insecurity, poverty, sexuality issue and living in remotest areas.
On the other, some regions of Afghanistan are facing with lack of professional teachers and participation of girl students after 9th class is dissatisfactory.
Lack of standardized building for a number of schools of the country is the basic challenge faced by the system of education.
But, the reality is this that the education system of the country especially teachers are facing with basic challenges in promotion of education and culture-making for today and tomorrow generations of the country.
The main challenge is insecurity that is overshadowing all over environment and education system is facing with it seriously in some parts of the country.
Albeit, it should be said providing means of subsistence and lodging is another challenge annoys teachers.
In another word, they know how of maintaining means of subsistence for teachers is indicator of position, worthy and importance of teachers that the education system and government programs and plan focusing on it.
It is a fact that the teachers of the country are enjoying from the least facilities, services and necessary supports in their daily life and in education affairs. This depriving regards as unforgivable disloyalty against teachers with least expectation and salary they sustain further pains and trouble.
Decisively we can say that from the beginning till final process and being involved with students, this period is from the hardest, heavy responsibility only teachers accepted and promoted, this stems from their honesty and loyalty before the offspring of their society.
If in present situation, beside the abovementioned problems facing by teachers, we add the threat of Taliban even beheading by them and other enemies of knowledge, performance of such prophetic mission against meagre privilege, facility and support enumerated as a great oppression and unforgivable neglect.
So, making effort towards removal of shortages and maintaining requirements that the education system and segment of teachers is asking for, in addition of enumerating as the legal responsibility of our government officials, is regarding as performance of humane responsibility.
Once more, it is emphasizing that maintaining education necessary materials improvement of education atmosphere, promotion of level of knowledge of teachers, offering services and necessary supporting of teachers, paying sufficient salary and providing shelter for them etc, are the grounds that can draw the picture from the position and giving worthies by government and education system in the framework of legalization of it.
So, in all countries of the world, all efforts are made for employment of worthy, committed and dutiful teacher.
Despite this, commonly, in all world nations, further expenditures are rendered to education sector.
Because, the base and corner stone of a country is formed by the expenditure or the education system of it.
So, most investment taken place on education of youth and adolescents. Because, the today youth are the tomorrow builders of this country.
Likewise, learning knowledge is supposing to both man and woman and this should be followed from cradle till the coffin.
In such day that celebrated in the name of teacher, we should respect and commemorate the memories of those teachers who are not among us and devoted their lives in the path of educating of students and fought against ignorance.
They are as shining stars in the sky of science and knowledge forever.
