It’s funny how parents force their children to go to school but tell them not to go to school. Confusing, right? I mean, why do you want your children to go to school but you don’t want them to go for the Education career? My question to you is, do you trust the teachers that teach your children? Are you sure that they chose Education because they love it or they had no choice? I believe that if you let the kids choose what they want to do they will make the most of it and put their all to it.
I was discouraged by my family when they heard that I want to be a teacher. They wanted me to choose a career that will make them happy. They kept on forgetting that this is my life and I want to do something that I love and will make me happy. Parents always complain that teachers are not active in class, they are always absent or they are not doing their jobs. Yes, there are teachers who do that because they were forced to be teachers or they had no choice at that time and now they are doing it for money.
The reason why I chose education is because I want to change the education system of South Africa. Those teachers are about to retire so if the younger generation does not step up to the challenge and become teachers, who will teach the Millennial Generation and Generation Z?
