Education plays a pivotal role in moulding thousands of lives by providing abundant information about the globe as well as make people more conscious about wordly affairs inclusive of the past and the present.
Educational institutions are the biggest contributors in the field of education majorly schools. However nowadays there are various others like coaching classes, tuitions, e-learning etc…
Tuitions, as relevant as they sound in today’s day and age, play a paramount and crucial role in a student’s day-to-day life. Everyone is in the rut to perform better by outdoing each other.
Every country nowadays incorporates such a system of learning. To think only India is subject to this is a mere deception. Even developed countries like the USA have such facilities which was revealed recently by newspapers. The articles exposed the truth about homework therapists who
administer academic help and emotional support as needed by the child. They even respond to texts and emails and often send their own, nudging students to finish a homework assignment or stay calm and composed before and during a big exam. The need for such therapists is purely because of the stress the children undergo. The parents send their young ones to extra coaching classes, not realizing the burden their expectations put on their children. This implies adverse effects on a few students who are incapable of handling the stress. They need to consult psychologists and some even consume anti-depressants. While others get into drugs and destroy their lives.
Tuitions are like two sides of the same coin. On one hand the additional help nurtures their brain to gain more knowledge and grasp difficult concepts efficiently. However, on the other side, the students have packed schedules and so they are even spoon-fed with notes and excess material so much that they tend to forego their own style of learning. They are more dependent on others rather than being independent. They become banal and lose their own essence and style of creativity as they are served everything on a golden platter.
Our education system is supposed to be a great leveler but instead we are increasingly relying on family resources for success instead of talent or hard work. In my opinion, also the tuitions create distinction between the tier of classes in societies furthermore. The zeal to fight the battle does not diminish as the aristocrats enroll their kids to extra tuitions while the unfortunate ones can’t afford such a facility. These fortunate kids get better training and they do well. This way the rich become richer and the poor poorer.
My ideology says that if a focused and regular diligent child can perform better that any of his peers irrespective whether he or she goes for extra help or not. This will not only teach them to become self-motivated and have a passion for studying but also match up to their parents’ expectations all by their own. And the most important thing will be the joy they will obtain from studying if they accomplish their goal single-handedly.
Last I would like to rest my case on the note, “Self-study is what will reap one not only results and grades but also the happiness and creativity that will contribute to one’s personality as a whole.”
