Automatic Promotions In School .
A TEENAGE student who can barely read or write is suing an education department for failing to teach him properly.
Beau Abela, 14, claims he lacks basic skills such as using a bus timetable, reading a menu or counting money and wants $300,000 in compensation
You go to school to learn and if you cannot learn anything, whose fault is it? Is it the educational system which promotes automatic promotions or the individual’s fault? If the student is mentally challenged, then he should be send to a special school . Having mentally challenged children in a normal school can be a big headache.
What is the purpose of automatic promotions? Is it to give all children a chance to learn more knowledge or is it to keep all those misfits in the school system until they are of age? One reason could be to keep them off the streets so that they will not make mischiefs or become social misfits.
Those who have no interest in learning should not be forced to go through the process of education. They should be send to a vocational or training institute to learn a trade.
Did you find what you have learned in school useful in life?
I am afraid; most of the knowledge I acquired while in school is useless and have since returned them back. The only thing I learned that was useful was knowing how to make friends, how to read and write and some simple arithmetic.
This is what it took me 6 years of primary education and 7 years of secondary education. It took me 13 years in school to learn that. I learned better through the University of Hard Knocks.
Today’s present generations , many cannot even read and understand after 11 years of education. They may know how to read like a parrot but without understanding the contents.
