Are we providing our kids good Education?
Education always plays a very important role in our lives. It helps us to think, grow and explore the world, further, it also helps to develop our personality. An educated individual can contribute to the development of his family, the society and the nation. But sadly in India, it has become a medium to get a job and earn money. Ever rising cut-offs, race to get into high profile institutes and getting highly paid jobs – it has turned into a rat race.
In society only getting into IITS and IIMS are a measure of success. This creates an unnecessary pressure on children and their parents to study hard crack competitive exams. This has led to a rise in private coaching institutes and has diminished the value of school learning.Students are the worst sufferers in this, leading to increasing peer pressure, depression and in some cases suicide. Pressure to fulfill the expectation of society and family, the pressure to outperform others adversely affects their health and psyche. Rote learning before exams, copying books in exams and getting good marks has become the trend of the day.This defeats the sole purpose of education that is to learn and explore.
We must realize that only Engineers and Doctors are not successful in life. A child can be a painter, singer,sportsman, actor and everything he/she wishes to be. Every child is special and has some unique talent, we should encourage them to pursue their interests. Only earning money and social fame are not the parameters of success. Unless we are happy and content in our profession we can never be happy. The need of the hour is parents should encourage and nurture the interests of their kids they will surely achieve success and make them proud. ‘Give me some sun shine, give me some rain.’
