To Boldly Go....

Teachers who have just graduated should go to schools where they are posted to, especially to rural areas. They should not, therefore, use the influence of people they know to avoid from being posted to these schools since this where their services and expertise are required the most. Being young professionals, they should take it as a challenge to go to these rural schools and see how they can best implement or adapt all those knowledge about teaching techniques that they have acquired during their three-year stint in universities. Being posted to a rural school can without doubt be very distressing. People always say that there is a first time for everything and if young teachers do not give it a try, then who will. You cannot expect teachers who are on the verge of retiring to be posted to rural areas. They themselves may have had their own share of experience in teaching students in rural areas. So, it is only fair that newly appointed teachers accept their appointments with an open heart, even though a bit heavy, and stick to what you were taught to do, that is to teach.
