The Teacher and the Opportune Word

Brother J. Lucian

Discipline: Education



SHOULD all teachers be expected to be aware of individual differences in their students? Are the days of the detached and aloof university lecturer gone forever? Can electronic machines replace the human teacher? In recent faculty meetings and official bulletins here at De La Salle it would seem we are all directed to be student-conscious and truly interested in the individual. At the same time we have joined the ranks of important Manila schools conducting M.A. programs in guidance and counseling for a selected few. And now the proposed Philippine Personnel and Guidance Association hopes to encourage the specialists engaged in student personnel work. As we train and organize more counselors will we forget about the class teacher who has no specific interest in taking guidance courses?
