I recently don’t want to watch the Hong Kong news, it made me feel so upset. In the past one month, there are more than 4 students suicide. The youngest was 11 in primary school and the oldest was 18 in university. The reason they suicide is because they feel pressure of the education. No doubt, the education system in Hong Kong is too harsh.
I remember when I was small, since 6 years old. I wake up at 6:30 am everyday and sleep at 12:30 am. 8 hours of school, go to after school tutor for couple hours. After that, go to learn some different activities like musical instrument and sport. Finally go home and do the homework. One month before the exam, I cannot use the internet and watch any TV. My life was like that for about 10 years from primary to secondary school. It was so tired everyday. As a result, I am not even in the first 100 in my grade (there are almost 200 hundred students in same grade). So can you imagine how the first 10 live?
However, the education system is even harsher than before. Every parent wants their child to be the best and the first. I am so sick of competition. It was like no matter how hard I do, I am still in the middle. But I am lucky that my mother wasn’t that harsh for me, so that I don’t feel too much pressure from my parents. However, most of the kids unlike me, the teachers, the parents, the tutors push them so hard and give them so much pressure. How can a little child at 11 can handle all the pressure?
Is that the only way to develop a city to push our kids to die? I wish that we can lower down the standard and let our kids to enjoy their childhood life! If you ask me what is my childhood sounds like? My answer is study, pressure and exams.
Hi All ,
Some of us like me we are going to be graduated in June .Honestlly I can’t wait to there. I am not ashamed to said it I am so tired of school!!!
I want balance in my life it’s really hard for some of us who are doing an internship tree days per week too because the kind of works that you needs do it is really different between class and work . Personally I prefer the day of internship because we work harder and most longer but at the end of the day you are done ! When you are at school you always have some homework or some researches to do and when you are relaxing watching a movie or what ever you knew that you shouldn’t do the fun stuff to focus on the school stuff….
The worst part is that in France we start school at three and a school day School day is to 8 am To 5 pm. More you growing up and more your day are longer before I came to NYIT I was during an internship during the day and I had class at night
Anyway I did my time 3 to 25 years old and I am more than ready to go to work for real if your are in the same case that me I all wish you luck for our final exams. Two more month and we will celebrate our new Freedom =)
The incident occurred Thursday in a school in suburban of Philadelphia. A school student accused his school of spying.
The laptops provided to students were provided with a system to remotely activate their webcam. For the sole purpose of finding the lost or stolen machines, ensure the establishment.
The authorities seek to know why the webcams of these machines could be activated remotely, and especially the use made of it. The school ensures that it was each time to find a 2300 MacBook movement, which was helpful in 18 of these cases.
However, the student do not take this situation like that. According to him, the Principal of the institution said to the student in November 11 that his behavior at home was “not appropriate”. In addition, the Principal would take such a treat for the drug.
