In India, majority of students, be it of any class or stream, visit a coaching center or a study circle for tuition. Seeing the present competition and cut-offs, Tuition classes are no longer an option, but have become a necessity for students.
Children about six years have to worry each morning going to school by 7.30am, and then they have stay focused in classes packed with 40- 60 students. When they return home, they realize that the day has only just begun. As they have to get themselves motivated for another round of studies through tuition. The concept of learning has lost credibility and all attention is focused on passing.
Parents tend to feel that when we are at work, the child might not study alone at home. Parents believe that tuition are essential as they fear that schools are not able to do enough with students of different capabilities.
Teachers believe that over competitiveness is forcing the rush for tuition. In a crunched class, the teacher is prevented from utilizing the full potential of a child of above average intelligence.
We need to move away from exam-oriented system and focus on how much the child learn and understand. Children are not encouraged to read and not trained to apply their mind by the current education system in the country.
It is wrong today to think that the students will do well if they are sent to coaching classes.
A private tuition teacher today earns well around Rs.70,000 a month on an average. Some teachers have become immensely popular. Students book in advance to attend classes. Gone are the days when only weak students went for tuition.
