Teachers are considered as the builders of a nation. They are considered as the unsung heroes of a country. Even their salaries (in the Philippines) are also heroic ones. When they die, no recognition or honors are given to them. When they are buried, they are just buried in the normal burial grounds. Some of them have no tombstones and all of them cannot be determined in the burial grounds as the people who molded the young ones.
Without a teacher there is no soldier or peacemaker. Without a soldier or peacemaker, there is no peace on this land. Hence, without a teacher there is no peace on earth.
Generally, without a teacher there is nobody. There could be no bankers, soldiers, computer programmers, scientists, etc.
But they are the neglected ones. They are the reasons why we have the legislators but they were not heard by these legislators who molded them.
Oftentimes, if there is a move in the House of Legislators to increase pay of public school teachers, it is usually put into trash.
