How good are the residential schools?

These days, many parents put their children into the branded residential schools for their plus two education. They are often made to stay in totally new environments and also made to go through all the tensions associated with a rigorous system of education that takes the life out of them.

However, how good are these residential schools? There are conflicting reports. While some are indeed good (once again based on reports of parents only)the rest are of dubious quality. In the case of the Rasipuram schools ( near Salem in Tamil Nadu), where the students are merely taught to get one hundred marks by merely mugging up the portions in the plus two Matriculation Examination of the T Nadu Government, there were even deaths reported due to excess beating and one or two suicides.
