Formality in education (micro-blog)

When was the last time you researched and made your holidays assignment all by yourself, without copying or totally outsourcing it to someone else.

When was the last time your teacher did something beyond expectation to get you to understand a concept better.

Do you recall your teacher fretting more over finishing the syllabus on time without caring for student’s understanding.

Do you recall using apps like Meritnation to do your tution homework

In all the above cases we are treating education like a formality

The focus of all the stakeholders in the present system is not learning but achieving good scores

What else do we expect from a system called “formal education”

But the more important question here is-

Can we afford to give learning a back seat ?
