I was watching the news about how parents conferencing with certain ministers and voicing the school curriculum. I was thinking, isn’t this the school curriculum and school responsibilities? Fascinating.
I believed parents have certain responsibilities in the physical realm of home and when parents take kids out. In schools, teachers have a responsibility taking care and educating in the academic skills of language (English, Mandarin) and Logic (maths and science).
There are clear boundaries many years back. In today’s world, we have counsellors, we have many programs for character development and others. Then, why are so many people having tuition?
Simple, if I have lousy food, I may opt to go to another restaurant. However, if the children dun fare well, shouldn’t teachers or schools take responsibility? The parents take responsibility when things happen at home.
In a nutshell, I hope certain people dun overpackage things and expect unreasonable results. Our children are not all in one mobile phones. Even those have a shelf live of 2 years or less, then its to repair shops. Or in our living things, our brain docs.
The above are my personal views. Same same but different. Btw, i have been helping children in primary school full-time for 7 years.You make the call.
