Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone!

My cousin is in middle school. He carries a pile load of books on his shoulders. He goes to school at 8 in the morning and comes back at 4. He has a shit load of homework to do. He does it until 8:00 and then goes to sleep. There have been days in his primary school when he had not been able to finish the homework due to their sheer volume and I have written some stuff for him in my left hand. Aren’t schools supposed to be more fun and engaging???

Many schools have forgotten the old saying “All work and no play makes jack a dull boy”. They are merely profit making organizations with an eye for edging out the other school in terms of academic results. Kids are being sacrificed in the deal. They are made to work harder than they can, beaten up for any small mistakes and some have even chosen to take the route of ultimate sacrifice in order to escape from the teachers.

The blame for some of the young kids commiting suicide not being able to cope up with these “concentration camps” also rests with the parents. All parents want their kids to become a doctor or an engineer and are not open to nuturing the talents of the kids. Pressure coupled with Punishment is not the best environment to grow up.

I hope the Government listens atleast to this The Hindu Article-Terror in schools and does something to enforce a stricter rule regarding the dominating and often “Nazi” like teachers.
