Selection of school for a child’s education is another challenge that every parent has to go through.. starting from play group to a higher level, Finding a school of your choice is an ordeal.
If we look at last ten yrs.. There is no doubt about the fact that number of schools have increased in the city and more so there are separate schools for toddlers to initiate the pre primary education, but it still doesn’t fulfil the need of education for all the kids out there..
Competition has become a part of everyday life, not that we aren’t accustomed to it … But it get on to our nerves when something as basic and important as education sounds like a burden because of the monopoly of schools and its privatisation.
My concern is why getting an admission in most of the city schools is like fighting a loosing battle? Education being the prime right of every child.
More so, after every schools coming up with the International tag has made it worst for the parents to
take a call and decide the child’s education.
Is the International tag all about paying big bucks and sending your kid to an ultra model building with all the luxuries available?
that’s best for all.
Well there is another angel I have heard and read about international schools. School authorities justify by saying those kids who study from international schools adapt to the western culture well
and get admissions in universities abroad.
My counter question is .. Were Indian students not going abroad in past or were they not getting
admissions in their universities before. I have always heard Indian education system is so well
designed that Indian kids are always demanded by companies abroad… If I may truly admit …all my school friend today are settled abroad in various countries and doing great. They studied Indian boards CBSE/ ICSE that’s always been there.
For a moment if I give up on my argument and agree that international boards are the best, why such
high fee? Are you charging parents for the education and knowledge you are imparting or is it the
for the interior designing and the amenities at school?
Schools and education has become a business and a money making racket. Today schools define its value by counting on the facilities they are providing… Like swimming pools, zymnazium, horse riding and what not.
asked to adapt and stick to their new curriculum.
two boards.. i.e, CBSE/ICSE
I would like to ask everyone, are these kids from different schools and board going to face different
set of questions according to their respective boards, when it comes to competitions after 12th std?
If the answer is no… Then why do we have all this confusion, when eventually we are all preparing
call it an international school, however adding international tag is paying them immensely. The schools are same, Teachers are same but just one word international is heavy enough to pull in the money from people’s pockets.
I am a parent, I have dreams for my child too… I want best education for him to do well in life … But I refuse to be a victim of this marketing strategy or a gimmick many schools have started.
I strongly believe in a conducive learning environment any child can excel, all we need are basic
requisites for learning and a guiding force for them to show the right path, luxuries at this stage will
not only block their vision but also divert their attention towards comfort and a relaxed attitude.
Don’t promise our kids a foreign trip and lure them to unnecessary adventures.. Let the parent decide for a family holiday rather.
positive attitude and focus on personality development while they are young. The soft skills are a complete miss from our Eductaion system… That can be worked on to ensure we produce the best of students all around the world.
That should be the motive of education and since its every child’s right to seek education … It should have a well planned and calculated fee structure, which is economical for the parents to bear instead of burdening them. No one should be allowed to go overboard in order to sell his institute and create disparity in the name of education among kids as well as parents.
