  • There are some things about the profession of education, which cause some people to avoid choosing it as a lifetime job and others already in it to get out. It is wise to take these things into account before accepting one. 

  • The training period necessary to enter the vocation is lengthening; Pay package is too low in comparison with other jobs; besides, they are not in line with the rising cost of the standard of living , the responsibilities attached, and the services rendered.

  • No one can get his job and then feel rest assured and rely on his accolades. Even the prescribed qualifications and experience are getting outmoded; improvement in qualification is necessary for sustenance as well as continuance.

  • The teacher cannot remain always with his own profound moods; he must spend much of his precious time on research.

  • Sometimes teaching and even non-teaching staff must take unwarranted abuse; they may be blamed by irate parents for the failure or low grades of pupils.

  • In some societies teachers are evaluated under x-ray eyes. At times, their ideas and philosophies are in question too.
