Education in Kerala. What is going on now?Listen, Speak ,Read, Write -LSRW is the right method for learning a language. But what about our education process in kerala. What is going on now?
Write, Read, Speak, Listen inverted method is going on. I'id like to share some fundamental ideas with you. You can deside what is the best.
There are mainly four types of Schools in Kerala.1. State Syllabus Government Schools 2.State Syllabus Government Aided schools 3. Unaided CBSE English Medium Schools 4. Unaided ICSE Schools so on.
The trend of Parents , generally prefer unaided english medium schools, saying that thier students is getting high standard education. In that English Medium Schools, English is taught as the primary language and Hindi is taught as the secondary language generally. Some of them teach malayalam language as the secondary. So that the student, whoes mother tongue is Malayalam does not study Malayalam well. Some Students of the English Medium donot study even Malayalam Alphabet also. They can`t even read malayalam rhyms also. Some brilliant students who got much awareness from family study even better. In English Medium Schools, Teachers try to write the English Alphabet at first. This is absolutely a wrong Method. To study a language, a person should atleast hear the concerned language.
After that the teachers try to spell the word. The students repeat it. Here is another problem. Most of our teachers donot know how to prenunciate most of the words in English. They donot try to understand Tense or Grammar Well. Actually the student is trying to understand some vocabulary in English language. So, he\she donot speak English or Malayalam well. The high fee structure of these schools make the students lazy. They neglect traditional jobs also. They prefer only white-collor jobs. Here is the main crisis.
At the same time , we can consider our state owned malayalam medium schools. Here, the lack of facilities are the main problem. The `Status` of the parents is another big problem. They donot want their son to study with poor family childrens. There is no doubt about the quality of the teachers inMalayalam Medium schools. They are considered as the best teachers in our state and well educated. The Students get more freedom in the Malayalam Medium schools also, so that they study themselves to study as well as to live in the society. Unfortunately, Our medias and private school lobby try to illustatre a bad image to the malayalam medium schools.
Actually education in kerala is a huge business process. Take the case of Aided managed schools. They are asking lakhs for teacher post without any guaranantee. What a shameful ! Other types of schools are not differnet from this. It became a business. The clients are students. If they want knowledge, you have to put lakhs to the management. For that, Banks are giving loans for the students. What a surprise. I can tell you more stories about these tpye of education. What is your opinion about my story? Expecting serious reply..
