                                                      Don’t Shuffle Them

1. Shuffling the students to different sections has been Practiced in many schools for many reasons. Some schools carry out the change in sections as part of a punishment to maintain discipline in the class. Friendship among school students evolves over a period of many years. A sudden separation from one’s friends can be very traumatic to the students involved, especially during adolescence, as the peer group determines the identity of the youngsters. It IS like uprooting an adolescent form his/her comfort zone. Interest in school activities many drops. Many boys and girls find it difficult to make new friends in the new section, as the adolescents would have established their own peer groups by now. Some students become rebellious some lose trust and respect for adults in general. Some can undergo mood changes including depression. The even oral threat of separation from friends can be very traumatic to children.
2. It is better than schools do not disturb the immediate environment of adolescents, as this can have long-term adverse effects on their emotional development. If there are constant deviations in the expected behaviour, the teachers should take the help of parents and professionals to find out if the adolescents have any behaviour or conduct disorder. An appropriate approach to such conditions would help students enjoy school better.                                       (Dr. S. Yamuna)
