Teachers should not get involved in politics

A few years ago very few teachers of higher educational institutions were engaged in active politics for petty interests. But now they are increasingly being involved in politics. Their politics is ruining the academic atmosphere of the institutions. What is annoying is that some of them are holding the paramount positions of the institutions.

Teaching is not only a profession but also a mission. An ideal teacher gives his students not only bookish lessons but also proper training to become worthy and responsible citizens of the state. They always keep them on the right track. The nation repose trust in them in building useful citizens to cope with new challenges.

So, our humble request to the respected teachers is not to get involved in politics only for petty self-interests.
