Is It True That Teachers Are The Heart Beat Of Every Nation

Hi am Jude. 

Before I start who is a teacher,  a teacher is one who impacts knowledge and morals into other people. A teacher is not just the one who is employed in an institution. 

Any one who influences you in any way is a teacher. 

Today, my friend was telling me that teachers are the heartbeat of every nation, he further said that without teachers there would have been many problems in a country, these problems he mentioned include 

There will be no leaders 

There would be high rate of death due to sickness 

There would be no clothes etc 

I was short of words, to me yes teachers are important but they are not in any way helping matters which I mentioned above. 

We have natural doctors, God gave them the talent to cure sickness herbs and leaves. 

The wisdom which God gave us is enough for them to lead us perfectly, our elders served as a good leaders in the olden days. 

To me every carrier in the society is very important, none of them exceeds the other. 

please what's your opinion on this.

  • You just said there are natural doctors and God gave them powers. This same natural doctors pass on their knowledge to upcoming generation and that's teaching also. So teachers are the heart beat of every nation

  • Without Teachers, we are nothing. Yes teachers are the heart beat of the nation because without their impact to us, we are gonna be wasteful to the world and the nation. What they teach us is what we are to know and put to practice for better days. Doctors today are because of the teachers, Engineers today are because of the teachers. So we should give all credit to them Cuz they deserve it.

  • I agree to that, that teachers are the heart beat of every nation because without them there is nothing like medical doctors who treat sick patient, cause through the teachers students get to know about medicine and surgery and become professionals in any skill of study both law,medicine and nursing, so I think teachers are very very essential, cause when there is no teacher, there is no doctors which means people will be dying often and often, also without the teachers the president himself can lead cause he needs that intellectual ability he is going to get from the teacher to lead

  • Teachers are and should be referred to as the heart of any nation because they are ones who impact the knowledge and ideals a child would carry on for the rest of his or her life. Any country with out good and moral teachers would only produce degenerates to the society.

  • Teachers are needed to train and groom young ones

    And when we are talking about teachers we are not only referring to the ones in the classrooms but also the ones in various workshops like the capentry,  mechanical,   weathering and alot more

    These people impact useful knowledge to the younger generation

    Teachers are of great importance to every society

  • Teacher are leaders. Without teachers we can't have great people like wole Soyinka, wale adenuga and so many other great people like that. Without teachers we won't have great leader like Nelson Mandela, Barack Obama.

    Teacher has a lot of great impact on every individual, they really deserve the best

  • As much as we have natural intelligence, the importance of teachers can't be overemphasized. The leaders, doctor, nurses, judges, authors, almost everything is a result of teaching. I also agree with you that anyone that influences you positively is also a teacher to you

  • I'm a teacher and I love my profession.  We impact life and help structure someone's destiny.

    Teacher is actually the bed rock of the nation not minding other professions because a teacher birthed the existence of other professions

  • Teachers play an important role in our life to become successful in career and business. I once have a good teacher who helps me to become a good human being in society and a good citizen of the country. Teachers know that students are the future of any nation. So the future development of any nation is in the hands of teachers.

  • Well, u see,for me I see that no nation can grow really beyond the standard o her teacher, and every nation is the picture of her teachers,either past teachers or present teachers. Our nation today is undergoing what we are all lamenting about because the teachers have failed to enter into the understanding of being a loco parentis and a life maker. We all know that, no profession can escape the hand of teachers. It then depend whether the teacher mars or make such life(s). Examination malpractice has come to peak in our nation because teachers felt its an avenue to make an end forgetting that the same student(s) would become the head of state, governor, chairmen, doctors, lawyers to mention a few. What would be the lot of a building which foundation is faulty?...its certain that the doom will be great. This is the result of unproductivity among our medical,political,educational sectors.

    I summit that teaching profession is a call because it is targeted at making lifes and not a mere means to an end.

  • Am sorry to say this, ur friend is totally wrong. Though teacher help a lot too but without teacher that doesn't mean that we can't do anything on our own since God is with you, for exam let take a good look at Dangote today, can any teach raise up his or her hand that he or she has ever taught him in secondary school. So on much own believe is that if God is with u will do everything in life perfect💯✨

  • There is no gain saying in the fact that each profession is as important as the next but then teaching is the bed rock upon which every other profession is built and so goes the saying no teacher no nation

  • My opinion on this is that teachers also do impact knowledge on us, but not many of them..... If there is no teachers we will leave because God gave everyone knowledge to do things so I don't think they impact knowledge on us that well.

  • Yes it's true. Teachers are the channel through which knowledge pass through the students, they inculcate, teach and also Instills Discipline in the students. Some students may not like their harsh behavior, but when they Move into the university, they will appreciate them the more. 

    In essence, Teachers are truly the heartbeat of the nation.

  • you made a good point actually about our teachers, without teachers who will be our future doctors? who will show young unwise kids the right part, if i say, i can honestly tell you that teachers should be the most respected career on earth and highly paid as well, because the future all depends on them, imagine what the world will be without education and knowledge.

  • Teachers are the heart beat of the nation in the aspect of impacting knowledge.. But they have cause more harm in the aspect of teaching bad morals because I can remember back in ss3 my physics teacher taught me how to cheat during exams ...so in conclusion whatever that have merit also have demerit. 

    - Ocheme Gabriel - 2019-10-05 20:28:39 Quote

  • To me, teachers are actually the heartbeat. 

    Without teachers,  we won't have alot of skills In this world. 

    Secondly,  who will train the doctors,  nurses,  economist, human resource managers we have today.  It's true this teachers, we achieve who we want to be in our career and change the world. Thank you

  • I'm in total  agreement to the position of the authority above. Teachers are indeed the  heartbeat of the nations success, progressiveness and of course the life wire of learning in all levels of knowledge and educational foundation. They are indeed the unsung hero's of nation's development.

  • Hello I'm Leonard. 

    Indeed teachers are vital to the society but all the same every occupation is important, I don't think one occupation is above the other nor surpass it. If a teacher falls ill, he or she cannot treat his or herself. 

    A teacher needs a farmer in order to survive because they  cannot cultivate what they eat all bh themselves

    A teacher is indeed the fountain of all careers because everyone needs a teacher to put he or she through with a skill or knowledge acquisition.

    In conclusion... Teachers are important but everybody needs everybody to survive, No one is an island on his or her own

  • Teachers are back bone of of every nation. They make great men we see today or we will see tomorrow. Never underestimate the power of a teacher. They save life. Doctirs todday are taught by teachers.

  • Absolutely true. But what baffles me the most is how their well being isnt taken seriously in Nigeria.  How can a teacher has a meager salary. Both the state and fedral government teachers aint having a well structured salary

  • Yes it is true that teachers is the heart beat of a Nations, without teachers there will not be a good knowledge on a personal level I think teachers is the number one best to our society

  • Teachers are an extremely important part of any society for many reasons. Teachers educate the youth of society; the youth in turn become the citizens, parents, and leaders of the next generation. Teachers teach children and pass on knowledge, skills, values and attitudes in their most impressionable years; what children learn from their teachers at a young age will most likely stay with them in some way for the rest of their lives.

  • A teacher is the back bone of the society. The actions and inactions of teachers have a lasting impression on the students they teach. Though at that exact moment you may not see the influence. But in the future you start seeing the student behaving like the teacher or thinking like him or her

  • Of course teachers are very essential piece in the society, but that doesn't make them any extra special, I mean for a nation to be great we all need everyone's contribution.

    The farmers, the Doctors, the lawyers, the police. All these are to be of high note too, because even the kids the teachers are grooming needs other figures in the society for them to idolize.

  • The roles of teachers in nation building cannot be over emphasized. Teachers are builders therefore, a nation that has good teachers has tomorrow in place. Irrespective of what we become in life, we must pass tru teachers to attain success.

  • I agree with you, no profession is better than the other, we are all good and unique in our various ways, the ability for us to merge all the positive result from each profession together will do our country a lot of good

  • it depends on how they see it, to me teachers has never been and will never be the heartbeat of the nation. God has deposited different gifts in all of us, we walk together to the good of the nation, just like in the bible God gave the apostle different gift to the betterment of the church. some were apostle and some teachers, some prophets, some pastors etc. So if you see teacher as the heartbeat then thats on you, but to me i see them as contributers to the betterment of the nation

    - Praise Sunday - 2019-10-05 21:12:26 Quote

  • Indeed teachers are the heartbeat of the nation, because everything that has ever been made was learnt either from something or from somebody and whatever thing or person you learn from is known as a teacher .

  • I love what you say teachers are very important in the society, they teach and bring up students in the way they should go . But the problem is that  they are paid lowly especially in Nigeria . to me most pple that are teachers. In Nigeria, are the ones that maybe they don't get good jobs then day decide to teach.. Just imagine that teachers where paid well. And the brilliant ones go into teaching that way .. The teaching of students would more easy and reduce illiteracy

  • Well... My view on that is....

    First even the Bible says my people destroy because of lack of knowledge... And even the bible see says that in the beginning... God use to come down and fellowship with Adam.. So is even an act of teaching... Him what he don't know....so to some extent I might agree on.. Because with teachers I think they have made things developed quickly..... In the aspects of food....they were the one that find ways out to improve food supply as to meet the capacity of the population.... That's fertilizer... So I think is Right..

  • Teachers are indeed the heartbeat of the nation. Even if we have people who are gifted with certain knowledge about a specific field and there were no teachers to impact this same knowledge to another generation then that knowledge will die and never be useful again. Teachers deserve a lot than they get.

  • Well, I think it's true. Doctors, engineers, lawyers and all these other professions which we consider as successful, they all came from teachers. In university settings, we have teachers in form of lecturers. So, teachers really are the heartbeat of the nation.

  • Teachers are the heart beat of the nation. It is not only those who went to school to study to become a teacher , that are called a teacher. Our leaders are teachers our parents are teachers and even our friends  are teachers because we learn from them.

  • Yes off course, teachers are the heart beat of every Nation. It's true that teaching and learning starts from home which we called informal education but the teachers give formal education. The doctor, nurse, engineer, lawyer , Rev. Father and Rev. Sisters etc are all thought by teachers. No nation can survive without the effort of the teachers. It's only in Nigeria that teachers are being neglected. Teachers should be respected and taking care of. Government should pay them salary very well and when due.

And HAPPY TEACHERS DAY!!!

  • Going by the definition of teacher giving in this context, then teachers teachers are inevitable in the society. No matter your profession, you will need one or two people to put you through. There are natural talent but talent without proper guidance will amount in waste. So therefore teachers are highly important to our society.

    To answer you first and famost YES teachers are the heart beat of every nation .

    I totally agree with you when you said "anyone who teaches you is you teacher".If there are no teachers there won't be these other careers you wrote about ......all the people in these various fields were all taught by teachers .

  • We cannot argue that teachers are not nation builders. They are the heart beat of every country. They impact knowledge drive the level of uneducation out of people's life. No one who is educated can say he did not pass through a teacher. Though it is just too bad that they can't pay them well in Nigeria sha. Because the work done by teachers is a great job.
