Nowadays, people all around the region are seriously talking about abolition of UPSR and PMR Examination system for our future generation betterment. I would like to look also at other areas such as the subjects taught.
Please do not hesitate to consider the quantity of homework our poor kids have to do. They have to carry many heavy books for each subject and their teachers also want them to bring the hardcover log books.
Most students were not specifically informed on their subject syllabus and schedule ; so they have to carry all the books for that subject.
There are just too many sub-theme and too much homework for every single subject which entails copying from the textbook, cutting pictures and drawings.
A few subject such as History, Civics, Moral and few other subjects can be taught in interactive or story-telling sessions or using dialogue rather than doing homework.
I hope we can bring back the fun days for students and relieve them of this heavy load.
This will improve their behaviour as well. At present, they don't have time for anything else.
Normally, evening session students goes to school at 8.00 a.m.; and they stays back in school in the afternoon. When they arrived back home at 7.30 P.M. They rushes for tuition. When they captured home at 10.00 p.m. they have to do their homework.
There is hardly time to spend with the family. They even have activities in Saturdays. These days it is no longer enjoyable to be a child and when kids become frustrated, they may turn to negative influences activities.
Learning should be fun and not just about homework and curriculum characteristics.
In Develop Country such as Japan, Korea, Australia, etc the children look forward to going to school and once they are home, there is a lot of time spent with their families. Also, there were no such things likes tuition, etc.
