Education is the most important factor in one’s life as it helps in determining one’s future. A man’s formative years are spent in school and what he learns remains with him throughout his life. Therefore, a school being a temple of learning has a duty to impart education in a responsible manner.
Since initially a child is unable to question what he is taught, it is of utmost importance that the school provides factual information and not hypothetical theories and concepts such as Big Bang & Darwin’s’ Evolution which hold no truth. This kind of teaching may lead a child in having wrong ideas about the creation of mankind and the universe.
Also, myths such as diamonds are made from coal; the color of the water is blue and future can be determined by looking at star signs are some of many examples of fallacies taught by schools.
Even history at times is projected to students as incomplete or one sided due to certain political agendas, economic scenarios, social strata etc of that particular country.
Here, it has to be understood that children posses an inquisitive and a volatile mind and they easily grasp whatever is given to them. So it is important that they are fed with the right knowledge from the beginning.
Though there is no denying the fact the schools all around the world do a highly commendable job and one would be foolish to belittle the tremendous contribution made by the teaching staff, it would be better if schools take care and scrutinize their syllabus in some areas for the betterment of education.
