Can Government Schools Give Tough Time to Private Schools!
Government schools in India have always been neglected or under estimated. There are some states, who take their schools and education provided by those schools seriously and rest all have already made their way to the news channels mocking at the sleeping teachers, students falling in the cooking pots of the mid-day meals.
There are some schools, which are making remarkable results that private schools have taken back seat in those states and on the other hand there are schools open only for the heck of it.
"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."– Nelson Mandela.
Here are some very important changes, which can be adapted by the top ranked government schools:
- Importance of education:
Most parts of the India are occupied by the poor, lower middle class and below poverty line people, who cannot afford to send their children to school.
Moreover they feel that extra hands will help in earning bread for the family. Thus it is important to bring awareness in the area by the teachers appointed for the respective schools, about the importance of education in day-to-day life.
Awareness about the changes, education can bring in a family or in a community, needs to be informed to the parents of the children, in order to encourage them to send schools.
- Activity based learning:
There are varieties of students, who come from different backgrounds with different intelligence. Moreover there will be students with physical disability and mental problems, with who the other students might take time to gel up or to dissolve them with the remaining students, will be an interesting yet difficult part.
Thus the introduction of fun activities in the school will help them in overcoming the difficulties they face in their day-to-day life. It will help them in uncovering the real talent these kids hold.
Nevertheless there are different ways to deal with children and the fun activities, cultural programs, performing theatre and acts together will make them realize their hidden talents.
- Introduction of technology:
Computers, laptops, smartphones are easily available and government provides them to schools for free for the secondary and higher secondary education.
There are schools, who take the advantage of these technologies in making students aware of the technical knowledge and how to use it in studies.
Also making the students aware of the technological uses in studies will help them prepare for future jobs and research.
- Role play:
There are different streams, where students can explore while in schools. Thus to make them future ready demo classes can be conducted.
These demo classes can comprise of teaching them politics and also play the role of different positions in politics to take decisions and work on it. It will make them responsible, as well as will help them in learning the topic in depth.
Special classes can be conducted for the academically weak students by making the academically sound student to play the role of a teacher and enhance his teaching skills.
Demo classes can be played by students for politics, literature, teaching, gardening, and many more.
Hence it is the duty of the teacher as well as of the parents to let the children’s minds develop, explore, explain, elaborate and evaluate their worth in life.
As the saying goes by, "Children are like wet cement whatever falls on them makes an impression." — Haim Ginott, child psychologist.
