Let's look at the factors governing this trend.
Parents who don't choose KV in primary classes give following reasons to support their decisions:
1. The overall atmosphere of the school is so middle-class!
2. The teachers are old, not so good looking ladies!
3. They don't speak English!
4. None of the students do!
5.Take a look at the students, they are all from the lower ranks!
6. Imagine my child sitting next to a lascar's child!
7. They don't make the foundation of the child strong!
8. They don't have extra activities like skates, swimming or skating!
9. The distance is quite far and they don't have a school-bus.
The list seems to be endless.
Parents who choose private/ convent schools, say theses schools are ideal because :
1. They form the foundation of the child.
2. They pay attention to the child's spoken skills.
3. Their classrooms are Air Conditioned.
4. Their teachers are so competitive, well spoken and so good-looking!
5. They take complete care of the child.
I wonder why most of these wards are withdrawn in 9th standard.
And now, for the reasons why the wards are admitted to KV in 9th standard:
Just one: The child needs stability at this point of his/her career.
Is it because we actually don't want to get involved with the difficult tasks of training the untamed young mind?
Is it because we find it convenient to keep the child engaged in the school for half of the day with lots of activities so that s/he doesn't disturb us in our internet/ mobile fancies?
Is it because we want to slowly shun the ladder of social classes that we come from: the earning middle class?
Is it that we want to give our children whatever we longed for in our childhood?
Too many questions.......
