On Teacher’s Day we discuss if the present crop of ‘meritorious’ job seekers would turn to teaching, a vocation that has been systematically devalued by the state and what impact would it have on the future of students? With Nandita Narain, Shivam Vij and Urmila Samson.
On The NDTV Dialogues, as we mark Teacher’s Day, we also look at the state of education in India. We talk often of a demographic dividend but unless we actually nurture our young people, both with education and employment, how productive can this dividend be? Educating India, the challenges ahead is our NDTV Dialogue tonight. On the show, Shashi Tharoor, Professor Dinesh Singh, Professor Yogendra Yadav and Chetan Bhagat.
