Learning Is Fun

How best can we do something to assist students who performed poorly in the public examinations?

Every year we have students who fail to excel or score rather poorly in their public examinations.

These students will not be able to get places in high school, matriculation, polytechnics or universities.

Over the years, these weaker students has been neglected to deal with their own destiny; they have been left behind on their own to either help or hurt themselves.

Not many have understood their struggles and frustrations.

Not many have come to assist them to make ends meet or to be successful in life.

Not many are willing to listen with patience their grievances and complaints.

Some of them have eventually become social outcasts and marginalized people of our society.

Lately, the Education Ministry is finding ways to assist them to obtain the necessary skills, to ensure that they could still continue with their education and careers.

These students will participate in skills training programs, which will then lead to certificates at different levels.

This provides an alternative way for weaker students to obtain the necessary skills training that would lead to professional qualifications.

It is a great effort on the part of the Ministry of Education.

In fact, it should have been done a long time ago.

There should be more trade, skills and entrepreneur courses for our students!

It would have helped our weaker students to learn about their career paths and be ready for them.

It is depressing, frustrating and disappointing for parents, teachers and the local communities to learn that these children have given up studies and are causing problems in school and society.

In fact, it is more depressing, frustrating and disappointing on the part of the weak students who know fully well that they will not perform well in the public examination.

Some of us are emphasizing too much on having white collar jobs.

White collar job or blue collar job? They both pay well, with the same hours, benefits, etc.

With enough skills and training, these weak students will excel too on blue collar jobs!

I would say that every student in school should learn to have fun, enjoy their studies, and know well about their career path.

Sometimes I wonder whether our school is for educating our students or for producing national champions with excellent academic and sport achievements.

Oh my dear school........ What have you become?

Where is the fun in learning and learning is fun that I used to hear and enjoy in the past?

If only they know about our children. sigh!

These are sad problems, that exist in too many locations. My daughter teaches in the inner city and the kids have too much to deal with staying alive to do well in school.

But, she keeps trying to make it fun, to reach one here and there.
