The retaining by two schools of several Class IX students in the same standard has come in for sharp criticism from educationists. It is not the act they condemn, but the reasons behind it. They say that schools find it convenient to blame students for below-par performance, but conveniently forget their own responsibility to ensure quality education. Results in many schools clearly show that students as well as parents have been lax about examinations.
But this does not mean that schools are not to be blamed, said Rohit Batra, father of a Class VIII student of Villa Theresa School. What about students who are really weak when it comes to theory? There should be some provision to replace theory papers with oral examinations. Some say that if a blame game ensues, students will suffer the most. The purpose of RTE was to reduce stress for students, not bring down the quality of education, said Arundhati Chavan, president, Parent-Teachers Association United Forum. While parents and schools argue and fight over RTE, students will be the ultimate losers.
