Recently, emigration has been a much-debated topic. Often, the desire to leave the country is more deeply embedded or eliminated during the school years. In this situation, should teachers openly discuss emigration and actually encourage students to do it?
  On one hand, teachers have a responsibility to their students. Their goal should be to help the children reach their full potential and follow their dreams. As such, they present not only useful skills, like problem-solving, curiosity, flexibility, but also information regarding the world they all live in. Additionally, the educators have more experience, can tell whether their country can provide the necessary conditions or resources for the young people's harmonious development and give advice accordingly.
  On the other hand, teachers have a duty to the state that hired them. Their employer allows them to work so that they create diligent and reliable individuals, who have vision as well. It would be in the country's best interest to have the students stay and improve society at home. Thus, it rests with the teachers the task of the teachers are tasked with convincing the children to build themselves a good life on native soil.
  In conclusion, emigration is a rather common choice nowadays and teachers' involvement in the matter is relative. Some believe the faculty should actively encourage students to move abroad for better opportunities, while others think they need to show the young people the positive parts of their own country. Regardless, it depends on each teacher's priorities and the scales will most likely not be tipped in either direction anytime soon.
