Ans. Role of Parents in Children’s Education
Respected Principal. Worthy teachers and my dear friends,
Today I am going to express my views on the topic ‘Role of Parents in Children’s Education.’ “I want my child’s education to be holistic.”
“I don’t like cramming and loads of homework.”
“I want my child to grow in a stress-free environment.”
“The curriculum must stimulate reasoning and analytical skills.”
At the beginning of every academic year, this is what you hear parents say. Newspapers and magazines highlight the stress and strain students undergo during examinations. Good as it may seem, this generates false hope parents have woken up to view education from a different dimension. It makes educators believe that they do not want to support a system that evaluates a child’s potential through marks and grades.
But unfortunately, parents suddenly realize the importance of exams, results, percentages, and college admissions and begin to rethink and re-evaluate their personal convictions. Then they say, “I must prepare my child to enter this competitive world.” Instead, they run from pillar to post, collecting question papers and application forms for all competitive exams: they load the child to fulfil their dreams. Children are not perceived as individuals. Schools become factories churning out prize commodities. As long as parents fail to consider their children as growing individuals with aspirations and talents. Institutions will continue to capitalize on mass production. No doubt education is a necessity, but what do you grant your child to be?
It is the duty of educationists and the governing bodies to give a new meaning, a new direction and strike a new path towards a meaningful education. This is the foundation rot a generation of sensitive and cultured human beings.
