Does the school system often curb individual students' talents?

  • Mark the answers and learn them by heart by tomorrow and repeat it our 17 years.

    Well school is all about percentages and marks nowadays
    a student goes from home at 5 in the morning comes at 9 in the night (including tuition and all) . I don't think this is learning or education all about . Its about exploring , thinking, creativity,innovation , application and ideas .

  • The School System is corrupt

    School nowadays is about memorizing a bunch of facts and spitting them back out on a test or exam. There is no learning involved, just memorization. Students should be taught things of importance. The grading system is messed up too. How can you grade something on creativity? You can't. Albert Einstein said "Everyone's a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will spend its whole life believing it is stupid"

  • Students Not Encouraged to Excel

    The school system often employs a one size fits all approach to educating students. This approach tends not to reward students well ahead of their class group. Instead, students who are ahead are forced to remain at the same level as other students, and they can often become bored or distracted.

  • The current public school system does often curb students' talents

    The current public school system does often curb individual students' talents. The main problem is that "success" in school is measured by test scores, which only measure a very small spectrum of a student's skills and talents. How, for example, do you measure a student's artistic creativity? How do you assign a score to that poem, or short story, or painting? You can't. It does not take long for a student to realize this, and, knowing that she needs to meet the test scores to be measured a success, abandons the things that she truly excels at, the things that she really loves. She becomes an automaton, suppressing her true talents and skills, in order to stay on the conveyor belt to graduation.

  • SCHOOL is the main platform that students get to know there talents and work on it.

    In SCHOOL students get the most important stage of there life through which they get to know there talents like art,music,football,etc. They try there level best to be best in there fields and TEACHERS help them with that but as to studies is concern it is also a important thing in life without which you can't stand in this world.
