Shocking statistic, isn’t it??? From the Newspaper, translated…
From the last year middle school students right now, a new implemented rule had been set up: in the seven areas of studies, each and every student must pass at least FOUR, in order to get their diplomas, and, in Changhwa, there is now, an estimated over ten percent of all registered students who won’t be able to reach this marker, the local government suggested lowering the bar, the Department of Education said to “boost the retesting policies”, and all the middle schools all stated, that it was “mission impossible”.
The person in charge of overseeing the middle school education of the Department of Education, Hsu pointed out, that the bars for the students to successfully graduate from middle school being raised to four subjects wasn’t at all strict, that it wouldn’t make it too difficult, for the students to reach, but the local governments and schools, are they implementing the reinstructing on time? She believed, that the key point lies in whether or not the schools are taking notices of students’ progresses, and whether or not they can offer the academic assistance the students needed in time, instead of waiting until the last minute, at the examinations.
Hsu spoke bluntly, that the learning processes is not clarified until the students’ last year of middle school, the teachers and parents must use an ordinary perspective to examine how the students are performing in class.
She was shocked to find out the conditions in Changhwa, and will get in depth, about how the local governments are implementing the reteaching, the remedial assistance given to the students.
Some of the middle schools would give out hints to the question on the examinations, and when the students still failed to pass, the schools would write the correct answers on the examinations for the students to copy down.
But there are still students who failed, and had stated so bluntly, “I just don’t feel like copying down the right answers!”, making the instructors and school officials who are working so hard, to reduce the number of kids who are flunking down angry.
And so, you can see, that the LOW quality of students that this systems is currently reproducing, can’t you? Because students are not passing the classes, the schools are lowering the standards, and, guess what that’ll amount to? This next generation of kids who are out of school, who can’t even do a thing right, and that would do what to the society? Oh yeah, it’d, ruin this world, but hey, that, is how they make sure that the “performance” of the school looks okay on sheet.
