lolz aparna di i guess parents tld their children but w/e.
thannnx aparna di
u quoted abt my HS and tht school is openly saying tht it is advanced i mean jus the name of the skool says it cuz in order 2 b accepted 2 the school u have 2 meet a lot of really high standards.
well i guess it dus build a heirarchy amongst the students but isnt it a part of life? u r out of skool life and in2 wrk field but u prolly still face it 2day. im sure there r many other ppl @ ur wrk who r better thn u and a bunch of others u r better thn...itz jus a part of life.
and outside of class tutorial isnt enough bcuz it dusnt let every1 get the best they can get out of their education. sum ppl need 2 lrn things slowly so its unfair 2 move at a pace which is 2 fast 4 thm 2 keep up with. other students comprehend quicker and it is unfair 2 prevent thm frm advancing.
this system has another advantage...every1 gets an equal opportunity to b top. if smart ppl compete with smart ppl and average ppl compete with average ppl it is fair 4 all. if it is a mixed class thn the 2-3 top students get all the awards and honrs and they r referred 2 as "teacher's pet" but it isnt their fault tht they r better students its jus the way v r. sum ppl r better @ intellectual stuff and others r better @ creative stuff. if average ppl compete with each other thn even they get an opportunity 2 b top or recieve honors which they wudnt have recieved if they competed with smarter students.
the only real disadvantage is tht children feel superior or inferior 2 each other
