Should dull students be detained or promoted - a debate

In this debate, I have explained the advantages of promoting the students who flunk in the exams. Some of the students are slightly weaker in a subject or two and they should be promoted to the next level. But, some students should be detained due to some genuine reasons. So, the government should wisely decide the students who should be detained.

According to the policy of the Government, students should not be detained in the same class up to 8th grade. So all the students are automatically promoted to the upper class and none of the students are detained in the same grade. Although they do not develop an inferiority complex, they also lose their interest in studies. So this system is causing inconveniences to the institutions and students.

Reasons why the students should not be detained in the same class

If the students are detained in the same class, then next year they sit beside the junior students on the same bench. So, they feel inferior to be seated with the younger students and yet study in the lower grade. The other pupils and teachers unnecessarily think that the student is not capable of studying. Just because Student A or student B is a repeater, he or she need not be a dull student. Some students are yet developing their skills and are not mature enough too. Perhaps they do not realize the significance of studies and ultimately they do not study for the exam. We cannot judge any student merely by conducting a three-hour exam. If they are not prepared to solve the questions, then they are considered failures. It is just that some students are slightly weaker in a subject and sometimes if they score 5 marks lesser, then are detained in the same class. Such students could study the same syllabus and perform the same assignments, and parents could pay additional fees to the institution for it.

Reasons why the students should be detained in the same class

If the students are automatically promoted to the next class even though they are scoring lesser marks, then they do not realize the significance of education. Most of the students lose their focus on studies and indulge in activities such as playing video games or watching television excessively. Even if they score fewer marks, nobody can ever take any rigorous steps to correct them. They do not realize that they are not moving on the right path and may not build a brighter future. Some of the students are too dull, so much so that they do not understand the basic concepts of the subjects even when they are promoted to the higher secondary grade. Some of the students cannot even read sentences properly in their higher grade, but they are promoted. Yet, such students are simply promoted to the higher level because the government has imposed such regulations. The teachers are then burdened to teach students who do not understand even the basic concepts.

How can the government impose rules in a fair way?

Students who are slightly weaker in only one subject should not be detained in the class but should be allowed to appear for the supplementary exam and be promoted to the next class. Such students can cope with other subjects. The students who are too weak in a subject should be given personal attention. Such students may be classified as 'Special Student' and should fill the Special Child Form. Such students may be promoted to the next level but should follow the required formalities. Some children who are weaker is most of the subjects should be detained so that they learn to strive in life. Usually if the child is not able to cope even in the following year, they cannot be retained in school. If the child is extremely weak in studies, then they require special attention. The principal or school authorities can decide if the child is capable of attending normal schools.

Dull students are qualified in two groups. In the first group keep those students who are slightly weaker than usual students,who are are promoted/failed in only one subject. In the other hand in the next group keep those students who are more weaker than the usual students , who are failed in all subjects approximately. Students those are in the first group are promoted a debate after qualified a supplementary exam.But the students who are in
the second group are detained for a debate.these students should support and more attention than usual students.If we detained dull students in the same class they repeat the same class and they are read with their juniors. Some students got it into a positive way and some students got it into negative way. Students who got it into positive way they are able to promote the next level because they think it's the next chance for them and they understand the lessons when they repeat the class. And the other students who got in negative way they are more weaker than before because they are thinking we are dull and juniors are also keddinng them .so they happen more weaker .so the teacher should more attention and support those students so that they are out of that negative way and try to the next level.
