Third World Educators for First World Education?
In the meantime,..
I don’t know whether the government knows that in our schools today, only the teachers’ children get to be the prefect. A teacher’s daughter would be given the answers for the prefect qualification test by her own mother. A teacher’s son would get to represent the school for badminton even when he came out fourth in the school’s competition. PIBG kids will get to go on trips with PIBG money while other kids dream on.
If only the government invest in CCTV in all classrooms, we would be looking at teachers who are online on facebooks while they made the kids do their own work.
Our teachers are far from able to detect any special talent or potential among their students. All they know is either a kid is noisy or obedient, and whether a kid did well or badly in the exam. Now that there are no more exams, they won’t even know that, will they?
Now, would these teachers know if a student has an exceptionally higher IQ than the rest? No way!..our teachers can’t even detect autism! In many cases they would just call an autistic kid ‘stupid’.
So much of a first world country education, eh?
