Education – For You or You For?
So recently I went in a conversation with a girl on Instagram regarding primary objective of education, role of boards in education and education in govt. schools. Her point was about boards, whether they are needed or not is a secondary matter and how many people actually understand the primary objective of education. According to her, govt. schools are still like mats on floor or classroom under trees.
I myself being a student of govt. school, I know how things work in govt. school. Atleast my school was no less than any private or convent school in terms of education. I was taught by my teachers just like students in any private institute are taught. I learned the same morals and scored good in my boards.
According to me, education is necessary for everyone but to extent where it doesn’t become a burden on you. It’s important to learn the basic fundamentals needed for living. I recommend at least secondary education for everyone which I think is necessary in today’s world for living. But the world is not made the way we think.
There are still millions of children who are barred from getting even primary education. The reasons are countless. Poverty and not enough awareness being on ranking on top. However, govt. is providing every sort of facility in govt institutes. Free education, books, dresses and even food. All needed is to create awareness amongst the masses for getting involved.
Education is not meant just for becoming successful. It is for being capable of understanding things. And for that one need a proper guidance. Not like you should only study and keep running the robot marathon. This in my opinion what should be the primary objective of education.
Talking about boards, to be honest I do not know what boards are meant for. I think they are just for some final memories with your mates in some other school giving the same exams which you were giving in your school and waiting for months to get the results. Please enlighten me if you have any idea about the objective of boards. Boards or not, I think it doesn’t matter.
Now talking about the conversation I had with this girl is pretty sarcastic.
Me: (Asking a question) Why board exams are not given on boards but on answer sheet?
Her: Because may be we don’t have enough boards for the population we have. (or something like that, I don’t remember the exact words.)
Me: (In serious note) Considering your point of view, I think awareness is what is important.. not boards. Proper guidance is needed to be created amongst population.
Her: Considering your point of view on awareness and guidance, I believe you have never visited a govt. school and the divisions they have made in their sections. Boards- needed or not is a secondary matter. First thing is how many actually understand the primary objective when we talk about education.
Me: I myself am a student of govt school.
Her: Your question was why we don’t have boards for boards education. Why do you think boards are not important? And what according to you are boards exactly?
Me: I think my question was wrong. Actually I wanted to ask why board exams are called board exams when they are not given on boards ?
That went in infinite laugh. But that gave me an idea to write this blog. So whenever you get a chance, inspire people to get necessary education for them or their children. Education doesn’t have any age. I think that will be better for making a better world.
