Under clause 45, 45.(1)(b), the words "diligently teach students"; what does that mean?

Thank you, Mr. Chairman. The word "diligent" would carry its normal dictionary meaning. I, unfortunately, don't have a dictionary in front of me, but to diligently pursue something is to be committed and persistent, and to do something to the best of their ability. Thank you, Mr. Chairman.

I just wonder why such a word would be used in an act. How do you measure if someone diligently teaches? It just seems to be a strange word to use in an act that's defining roles and responsibilities of an individual.

Referring to the same clause, the teacher has to diligently teach emotional development and diligently teach spiritual development. I'm just talking out loud because I'm just wondering how one can do that, and how can one measure that? That's my point.

Thank you, Mr. Chairman. I guess the issue is when you leave out words, then obviously you get an different interpretation, but the issue is promote their physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual development.
