Need to Educate the Educators

A few years ago, when we were children, and received a chocolate, as a pat on our back, we felt extremely happy. Today, patting on the back of a good student, we cannot think of offering a chocolate, when their expectation is in line with MP3 players, iPod, Laptop etc. With time human needs, human thinking has changed drastically, especially over the past few years.Recently we, a small group of 9, students of social sciences, went into 9 different villages of Bangalore and lived there for about a month. During this month long exposure we met people, learnt their lives, their faith and belief systems, their dreams and aspirations, their pains and struggles and their needs and frustrations in life. Mahatma Gandhi, once while answering a question on developing India, stressed on the importance of developing the villages. Having come back after a month and reflecting together on – living in a village, we unanimously came to the conclusion that, only thing that could help these backward and downtrodden, to change their lives is-Education, the same age old answer. But not the same age old concept of education; Education with a difference and education for transformation.An educator plays a vital role in the whole system of education. I repeat again, not an old fashioned educator who gives yesterdays, readymade answers to today’s problems but a dynamic educator who thinks ahead of time and is able to give new meaning and creative responses to the present issues.Michael Angelo, the world renowned artist was able to see a beautiful angel even within a crooked piece of stone, when others belittled it, thinking useless. If Mahatma Gandhi, Abdul Kalam, Nelson Mandela were formed in the classrooms, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin too were formed in the same classrooms.Reflecting back at my experience in the village, I remember; One day when I asked my fourth standard students, ‘what would they offer me when I visit their families?’, among the many other, one small boy stood up with all his honesty and innocence saying, “Sir, I shall get you Ganja(Drug), which gives such pleasant feeling, nothing else can give.” There are hundreds of such cases in our primary schools itself today, leave alone the others. One could already sense how many of these students who are in the bud now, may turn out to be criminals in the near future if not guided properly. Unfortunately the teachers, who deal with such issues, are dealing more often with the symptoms than treating the root cause. The age old practice of training the students, with a stick in the hand, holds no good anymore. Thus we realize the need for well trained educators in the early schooling as the character of a child is formed there within those four walls of a school.We often come across 2 kinds of educators. The first one-for whom teaching is a mere profession and the second one- for whom teaching is a passion, it’s their life. Unfortunately we have many of our educators falling into the first category. It’s also sad to see the quality of students, doing their D.Ed education in our country. Most of them have scored very low in their studies and get into the field without any other choice. No doubt, we need best and competitive teachers for the early schooling.Quite often we fail to distinguish between education and literacy. Literacy could be given by anybody but not education. Education could be imparted only by a person with a noble vision and depth. Thus they need to be trained. Then can any one specify a particular training for these teachers? One would be wrong, if he tries to do that.A student comes to a teacher, not only to learn alphabets but also to learn -LIFE. A student is like a chunk of clay, need to be moulded and thus need potters of class and calibre. An educator needs to be like a seer constantly searching for light and truth in his own life. A student learns more from the life of a teacher than his/her words.By Nature every person is wounded in one or the other way. An educator needs to be a person who is healed and only then he will be able to form and help the students to heal themselves.A good teacher also needs to be inspiring, creative, and motivating. Participating in various workshops, training programmes, taking initiatives for some noble cause and basing one’s life on certain values would definitely motivate and inspire the students towards them. A student feels in the company of a good teacher, that s/he, too wants to be like his/her teacher. And the teachers needs to be careful, not to produce their own photo copies, rather to mould every student in their potentials, guiding them towards noble values and help them to live a life, fully human and fully alive.An educator also needs to be a person having deep insights into human nature and behaviour. Each student is different as a person and in patterns of learning. An excellent educator finds ways and means to get the best out of his/her students.Thus training in NLP, basic psychology, programmes like ‘Teachers for today’ would help. But that’s the bare minimum. Basically a good educator is self formed, daily with deep inner reflection on the exterior action and moving on with a noble vision, which is above their own personal comforts. I firmly believe only such educators have the power to change the course of human history and in particular, Indian society.

How to Value Your Business for Sale

When selling a business, one of the most crucial elements to consider is the business’ value. It is essential to derive an estimated valuation of your business early on so you are clear about your expectations and your willingness to negotiate during the sale of your business. There are a number of key factors which will affect the value of your business, just as there are a variety of ways in which value can be calculated.Key Factors that Affect the Valuation of Your Business- Finance – The business’ financial history and current situation will be vital to the overall value, as well as the cash flow and projected profits. Many buyers will be interested in how well the costs have been controlled, and if there will be a need for capital expenditure in the future.- Assets and Liabilities – The value of the business’ assets such as property, stock, equipment, and accounts receivable is another key factor. In contrast, any existing liabilities and level of debt will also need to be taken into account.- External Factors – The general state of the economy will affect the level of demand for your business, such as interest rate levels and inflation rate. You should research the value of similar businesses, the saturation of your market and the number of potential purchasers that may be interested.- Intangibles – Intangibles such as the potential growth of your business, the strength of your customer relationships and intellectual property and goodwill can also affect the final valuation.- People – How dependent your business is on your own involvement will be one factor that buyers will want to gain a clear understanding of, as if your role is paramount, the value may be depreciated as a result of your exit. The success history of the management and the staff commitment and experience should also be considered.Although many of these factors will be outside of your control, you can take steps and implement any necessary changes before the sale of your business, to make it as valuable as possible. The further in advance you begin to plan, the better prepared you will be for selling your business.It is important to remember that the valuation that you or your personal advisors may produce will most likely be subjective. Many business owners place a value on their business that is too high, and ultimately the business is only worth what a purchaser is willing to pay.Methods of Valuing Your BusinessThere are different methods available to you in order to determine the potential value of your business. The most common methods are valuations of the capitalization of future cash flow and multiples of future earnings.- Multiple of Earnings – Businesses that have a record of sustained profits are normally valued by a multiple of future earnings. Profits are adjusted for one-off or uncommon items, and then an estimate of the average earnings will be made. The multiple is a factor that will vary among different industries.- Discounted Cash flow – Many businesses are valued in a similar way as the multiple of earnings method, but this valuation is based on the estimation and discount of any future cash flow. Short term cash flow will be valued higher than long term cash flow.- Asset Valuation – Asset valuation is another method that is used for stable businesses with significant tangible assets. This method is based on the value of the verified assets identified in the business accounts.Being familiar with the business valuation process will almost certainly save you thousands of dollars when it comes time to sell your business.
