Continuing with the life or death stigma, if, for example, a student is unable to take his/her board papers well, due to an illness or injury or any other form of emergency, and isn't being given a retest, therefore having to give that exam, therefore doing badly, therefore failing (see the cycle?) - what gives CBSE the right to make that child go through one more entire year of school, as though that child has failed, instead of giving the child a retest? Can't the system be slightly more humanistic and flexible, and judge one situation at a time, instead of having a set of rigid rules for all situations, regardless of their uniqueness? What if that student is a school topper in reality, and is capable of doing really well, but just wasn't able to perform well due to other factors? Is an education board actually going to leave these things out to luck?
Furthermore, they emphasis not on learning or the gaining of knowledge, god no! They instead, are firm believers of rote learning, an ideal they believe will make us successful and happy individuals in the future. (insert beyond sarcastic thumbs up and smiley emojis here)
|Look at him just reading and gaining knowledge. Why can't we have that, instead of rote learning? HE'S SMILING GUYS. COME ON.|
