Admission to school-a tough decision to make!

Admission time for any parent is the most busy and tiring time.Especially those parents whose kids would enter school premises for the first time, it becomes a big job on hand to make a good selection of the school. It becomes all the more difficult with innumerable choices of schools available today.Over the past 10 years there has been a tremendous change in the education system because of the new innovative and technologically motivated learning solutions. The old orthodox class rooms with a black/green board and a chalk are slowly and steadily being replaced by the smart classes. These smart classes are fitted with the best computers and projectors and thus enabling students to get a real hands on experience about the various concepts that they learn in classes. This in turn is helping students to better their grades and become achievers. Hence all the schools are providing these world class facilities by hiring the services of good companies like EduComp ltd who specialise in this.

Various Examination Boards:

Apart from the advent of smart classes the schools have also seen the arrival of various international examination boards. So now the parents have a lot more thinking to do when deciding about the schools since they also have to decide about the board which is all the more confusing. The parents are not sure as to why so many boards are there and what is the difference between each board. The absence of awareness about these boards adds up to the confusion. For this reason I have described the following boards and all are worthy in their own way.
Have a look at them:-
  • The Central Board of Secondary Education(CBSE):-
    This is the main governing body of education system in India. It has control over the central education system. It conducts exam and looks after the functioning of schools accredited to central education system . It is very helpful forthe students who would be taking up entrance examinations like CET after 12th.

  • The Council Of Indian School Certificate Examination(CISCE):-
    It is a board for Anglo-Indian Studies in India. It conducts two examinations 'Indian Certificate of Secondary Education' and ‘India School Certificate’. Indian Certificate of secondary education is a k-10 examination for those Indian students who have just completed class 10th and Indian school certificate is a k-12 public examination conducted for those studying in class 12th. This board has a great emphasis on languages specially English hence very helpful for students going abroad for higher studies as well as those appearing for any entrance exams.

  • State Boards:-
    Apart from CBSE and CISCE each state in India has its own State Board of education which looks after the education,conducts exams and issues certificates.

  • International General Certificate for Secondary Education (IGCSE):-
    This is internationally recognised student qualification which was started by the Cambridge University. This board offers innovative education methods to students and practical knowledge without burdening them with facts and figures. It matches the international standards of imparting education.

  • International Baccalaureate (IB):-
    This board is also an international education program from Geneva, Switzerland. It offers various levels of education to children of age group 3-19.

  • All the above mentioned boards are doing their best to provide quality education to the children. Especially the CBSE and CISCE boards have a committee which reviews their syllabus on a regular basis so that the children are given best opportunities.

    Reason For High Fees:

    Nowadays most of the schools are getting affiliated to international boards and having smart classes. They are also ready to provide world class infrastructure like A/C classrooms, cafeterias, high maintenance activities like skating,swimming,horse riding etc. These all facilities obviously require funds which are extracted from the parent’s pocket.The parents in India are so obsessed with international education that they feel if children are put in an international school all their future worries will end. I have seen parents specially mothers being very cautious in choosing school for their kids. I want to ask them that “ aren’t we putting pressure on
    ourselves as well as the children by being over concerned about their admission?”. It is good to be concerned, but not on the price of the health and well-being of the child.

    Some Useful Advice:

    Here I would like to tell parents few points to remember when admitting their wards:-
    1.The first priority is proximity of school. I feel the school should be close to your residence so that you can visit it easily in case an emergency comes. Also you definitely won’t like your kid to take 2 hours to reach home.
    2.Student:teacher ratio should be good. It should not happen that a class is having 50-60 students in a class and teacher is not even aware of some students' names.The ideal ratio of student: teacher is 25:1.
    3.The teachers should be well qualified.
    4.The school must have at least one open playground or area which is important for children‘s overall development.
    5.The school if fits in all above parameter then its fee structure should fit to your pocket.

    At The End

    I want to tell parents that every child is special and it is important that he becomes a good and responsible citizen first. If he is honest and responsible then he would make fortune and then the board of education won’t be important.This I can tell you because my brother himself studied from a state board and then went to IIT for his BTech and now, after doing job in one of the big MNC, he is completing his MBA from Booth University of Chicago.And when asked he humbly attributes his success to his parents, his own hard work but
    most importantly to his teachers at school who taught him the values of life and gave proper guidance. So dear parents please trust your child’s capabilities, let him enjoy his first childhood years in any good school you wish to and then decide on his future.
