While some people might differ with my early blog.. I have soemthing further to add :
Half yearly exams : some subjects, portion got completed just the day before exams started since they didnt have that subjects teacher for quite some time..
daily two subjects were scheduled for half yearly assessment .. the only logic I see to this crammed up schedule is...in fact none.. they could well have started the exams 4-5 days before the schedule and taken the exams one subject per day.. i dont think they have any idea as to how much stress it adds to the poor kids..
I get so many people asking me about my opinion about the school nowadays that I just tell them that before 1st grade, this school is doing pretty okay but as soon as the kid is transitioned from pre primary to primary they just forget the fun element in learning.. its just syllabus, test,syllabus ,test... nothing else....
after having paid the admission fees.. it leaves the middle class parents no choice but to quietly continue in the hope that they might improve in future .As for my kid.. he doesnt look forward to going to school now.. while earlier it was a different story altogether..
