Changing Times and The Need of Better Schoolingby Akash Sharma Akash Sharma
Schooling of kids is something that parents have to juggle with first up, as soon as the kids start walking. Back in time it used to be really simple as the literacy rate of the country was lingering and any kind of education was considered to be good. But with the drastic change in the education structure and the issues of the world, education is a sector that needs to step up, so that we have better informed, learned and more capable future generations. Hence, to choose the kind and type of schools that your kids are going to study from has become a herculean task with the number of options available in the field.
There are the traditional schools with the traditional curriculum, where the kids are sent to in the morning and return by afternoon. The traditional book knowledge is imparted with regular examinations of how much they have been able to memorize from them. This kind of schools have become almost irrelevant for people who can afford other better categories.
Then there are the day boarding schools, wherein you send your kids in the morning and they come back in the evening with the homework done and almost all the help or assistance required is provided in the school itself.
Full boarding schools have existed for some time now. Kids are sent away to live in hostels on the premises of the school. These schools impart basic life skills, antiquates and behaviour in addition to formal education. They teach one how to respect time as a resource and how to manage one’s self without any assistance.
Except for the traditional schools that impart the traditional book education, both day boarding and full boarding can come with a number of different curricula. In India, there are mainly the schools that teach the state board curriculum and schools that teach the central board curriculum. Then there are those that teach the ICSE and IB curriculums. In the most recent times, parents have preferred these schools for their wards and there are clear reasons for that. The International Baccalaureate or IB Schools aim at something more than what other curricula do. They aim at building a world with better intercultural understanding and more respect for diversity. This clearly seems to be the need of the hour. Delhi has recently seen a growth in schools that impart this kind of education. The Sri Ram School is one such school that has mastered this over time. In fact, it may well be the best of the IB Schools in Delhi and as well as one of the best ICSE Schools in Gurgaon, the NCR city.
While parents are spoilt for choice with the types of schools that are there, this usually ends up being one of the toughest decisions to make as it has a bearing on how good or bad a person will the child grow up to be. So, choose wisely!
