This has something to do with the kind of system we have for education.
While they are now adjusting and correcting the old system for teaching, there are still some teachers out there that kept focusing on the score of student and not because of his/her performance.
I remember, back in college, there was one professor who just played with our grades. Though, we got high grades, we are honestly not really learning from him.
The saddest part is that, he cannot even give us a basis on how did he arrive with such grades!
Same thing during examination, one student gets a high score without reviewing and one gets a lower score despite the fact that she did review.
The teacher or professor assumed that the one who gets high are the one who studied very well.
I know, I had been a grade conscious student back then.
But the problem with the kind of society that we have even today, is that…
We associate our value and learning by the grades that we get!
Getting high grades doesn’t mean you studied hard for it and the same goes for the ones who failed in the exam, doesn’t mean she never studied at all!
Some are just born to be too smart and we cannot change that.
And some are just not born to be intelligent, but still exerting an effort.
I strongly believe that, the great learning that we need to sustain is a kind of exam that we get to experience firsthand. It could be a role play, oral report or on-the-job training.
Those are output-based.
And not just the terms that we used to memorize for an enumeration type of exam.
Like some of these…
Who are the proponents?
Give at least 3-5 names and discuss,
What are their contributions to the society that we have today?
And so on and on!
I honestly love memorizing and analyzing, but once I graduate in all levels of education, I never recalled what are those things?!
I just hope that one day, they will give us a better education that does not only enhance the capability of our brain to memorize, but also to truly understand each topic.
I hope you get my point.
Please give us a comment regarding the kind of education system you want to remove and replace it with the one that’s effective and can better equip us in the future. 😉
