SCHOOLS REDEFINED; UPCLOSE AND PERSONAL
Have you ever wondered what our children think about schools and the education being imparted there? So today, I will share with you some eye-openers regarding redefining schools. An up-close personal encounter with children. Let’s start.
Firstly, according to children schools are a form of child-labor and fits into the category perfectly.
See according to the definition; The term “child labor” refers to the exploitation of children through any form of work that deprives children of their childhood, their potential, and their dignity.
And it refers to the exploitation of children through any form of work that deprives children of their childhood, is harmful to physical and mental development.
It refers to work that: is mentally, physically, socially, or morally dangerous and harmful to children.
Secondly, children are exploited in schools and even online either by the bullying of some fellow students and even by teachers who take out their frustration on the child attending the class.
Thirdly, children are deprived of their childhood as school timings are from early morning till late in the evening. A child spends his or her maximum time in school where he/she might learn a new concept or might not understand it at all.
All this results in more labor and hard work when children are going to tuition centers for clarity of the stuff the school was meant to provide.
The burden of homework, uncleared concepts, and projects create a lot of conflict in the minds of young kids who feel stranded with bonded labor not able to enjoy family interaction or functions. And even attend their funeral.
Fourthly, studies show that about 83 percent of children suffer stress due to school.
Fifthly, the syllabus that is been taught for ages does not apply to practical life. It’s all theory. Modern-day requires modern-day techniques and approach. Old and rotten syllabus won’t help them excel in life.
Those minds that are creative and agents of change are lying wasted and the new batch getting ready is aiming towards a wasteful future with the old and rotten syllabus along with the rotten minds running the helm of affairs.
Sixth, for children schools, now are preparation for hell. A place where they are trained to bifurcate between high and low in the name of classes.
Principles wrapped in a golden box of lies, staining the minds with rules and discipline to be found nowhere except their own torn selves.
Unable to find the righteous path with so many multifaceted faces. Strangled between their own judgment and the realities of life.
In the end, I would say that our systems are in dire need of a change.
To our children, the school systems or any other educational system, are a warehouse of continuous depression and work. We, as agents of change, need to think about young agents of change.
We are standing at a very crucial stage. Think about it. Until next time, stay safe and healthy.
