Irregularities in some private schoolsI have noticed that teachers in primary section focus on giving homework to students. If homework is not given to students parents also complain why the homework was not given to their child. Interesting point is that these children don't do their homework without the help of their parents. Sometimes, I have seen the mother herself does the homework and ask her child to copy it. What a child learns by this homework I don't understand. I have seen some families that parents hire a tutor for homework of their children and he/she gets a child's homework done.
I think If teachers focus on classwork instead of homework children will learn something.
I have observed that some students whom I know are weak but their marks are always good. They study in good schools which everyone can't afford.
Teachers of good schools are not as smart in teaching as they are supposed to be. I have seen notebooks of some students of 6th to 8th class. I found that length of short and long answers was almost similar. I enquired to them how their teachers get written answers to questions. They told me they ask students to mark on certain portions of chapters as the answers of questions and they copy on their notebooks.
Although I don't generalize it I have seen notebooks of some students who study in high-paid schools.
