A teacher is the window through which students look at the world; therefore, as a teacher it is my responsibility to present a clear and impartial picture of the world. The political world that I would introduce to my students would shape the society and polity in which we live; any other distorted view of the political process could have severe consequences. Therefore, my primary objective as teacher of political science is to enable my students to think logically and clearly about political questions so that they can make informed decisions, without being swayed by emotion or prejudice. I strongly believe that only having information is not sufficient for students to make informed-decision, as having the mental faculty to logically analyze pieces of information is also required. This is not to say that information is not important, but asking the question ‘why’ – and not taking any idea as given – is more important for developing a rational person.
