When every year – more than 50% of the total students fail the SLC exam – can you feel ecstatic about your brother passing with a distinction, or your sister, son, daughter passing with ‘flying colors’? How can you be even happy when over 300,000 students couldn’t make it through the ‘iron gate’ this year as well?
Our education system has failed us.
Our examination system has failed us.
Our government, policy makers, educationists and teachers – they have failed us.
I am a teacher and I want to make an appeal to all the teachers, examiners and those who check answer papers.
Don’t fail any students.
Yes, educate them, teach them and also let them through this stupid SLC system. Don’t push them back into darkness because they couldn’t impress you through this illogical three-hour exam system.
Give the students a benefit of doubt, especially to those weak students who perform poorly in exams.
Let them through.
Let all of them through.
Dear teachers, examiners and those who check answer papers. Please empathize with the students and send them through this exam!
If you can prevent students from committing suicide and save their lives, why not do so? As teachers, we are supposed to save our students’ lives, aren’t we? Screw the marks, LIVES are at stakes here. So, just send them through.
They will figure it out when they go to the real world later.
Just let them through.
