As Pakistanis hobble towards a normal life, the government announced the reopening of educational institutes from 15th September 2020. After six intense months students, parents and teaching faculty showed a sign of relief.
Are Students Happy About It? Let’s Dive In!
Looks like Students are not really joyful to hear the news (Vacations Over!) Starting from Tuesday, Students from all over Pakistan united to run a campaign on Twitter with ‘#SyllabusKamKaro‘. Therefore, they are pleading to the government to reduce the syllabus taught in Online Classes.
It’s Top Trending On Twitter…Have A Look!!!
The hashtag is trending all over Pakistan. Students have united towards a common goal. They are expressing their concerns and apprehensions as the term moves towards it’s end.
With Less Than Half Syllabus Covered Online…We Are Not Kidding!
‘We Intermediate students have too much syllabus and less time to prepare’ wrote one twitter user.
Online classes…useful or not? We Have Some Opinions For You!
The term shifted online and students weren’t too happy.
Most importantly, living in Pakistan and not facing electricity shortage, disrupted internet connections and affordability of electronic gadgets is definitely a sign of being privileged. Phir concerns tou jayez hi hain…
Hmm…they do have a point, right?
We agree with the stance! Do you? Shouldn’t the government of Pakistan facilitate students and hear out their concerns and issues? We have seen actions regarding several problems in our country… why not address the cause of students? Why is the youth and younger generation always undervalued in our country?
Waiting to hear more from decision makers in academic and education concerns to help resolve the issue.
‘#SyllabusKamKaro‘ Throws Light On Mental Health
As the new academic session kicks into gear, our academic culture can become a lot more toxic than it seems – over-burdening students, not giving importance to their concerns and apprehensions and the lack of communication between faculty and students is something to worry about… Lekin in sab baaton par hamari suni kab jaygi? The toxic educational culture is the reason why many students are depressed.
Do you think the government should provide a platform for students and hear them out? Should academic stress and student’s health take first priority instead of pushing them towards a burdensome educational system? Are grades more important than a student’s skills and abilities? These are some of the questions that need to be addressed.
Perhaps we can also address online connectivity and budget-proof solutions to online learning as supporting solution to the future of learning in Pakistan. It would do well to keep up with modern technology where the youth needs it most!
Let’s start conversations and look towards solutions by initiating a two-way dialogue between educational institutions and those who visit them to carve a better future for themselves.
