The importance of schooling in shaping children's future

Education is more than an investment. Gone are the days when parents and families decided upon the school based on closeness to home, strict budget and from friend’s opinions. Today it is all about researching about a school and finding out information themselves and through its status both online and offline. Traditional schooling emphasises on studies and had minor support for co-curricular activities whereas present-day schooling and education gives equal importance to academics and extracurricular activities.

How many percentages of parents will be prepared to decide a School where overall development of children is focused upon rather than treating kids as rank-procuring machines? Although many may say that when choosing a primary school or a matriculation school, children's on the whole development is the parent’s concern, they certainly do not want to let go of the top priority for academics. However, some parents are creating a change in there mindset, a shift from pure academic to a more holistic one towards the purpose of Education. It is exceptional to find a school which makes education interesting for children.

The dullness and stress of education can be largely reduced with a good addition of extracurricular behavior which the child may be interested in or for which the child may have a natural flair. If you take any primary school for example you will find a similar blueprint of education for tiny tots, when comparing it with other primary schools. In reality it is more or less the same. But introducing diversity in the teaching methodologies will make a huge difference to the approach the child develops toward education. A Montessori classroom is the environment in which a child picks up the first lessons for learning which begins with surveillance and re-employment of the learning in various other fronts.

Application of learning skills in the future depends on the capability of the child to study and understand the tutor's information and instructions when he or she is in play school. These abilities mark the child's intelligence quotient and form the basis to check his or her capability levels at later stages. An academic examination is not to be treated as the final verdict or do-or-die stand to a child's future; instead it has to be limited to its importance in serving as the benchmark of "only" his or her understanding of the concepts and successful expression of the same.

Beside the staple dose of sports and fitness sessions, if schools can add more variety into its non academic curriculum by including fine arts, language and phonetics, games, skill building and social good programs, it will be valuable to students and will enable them in becoming better human beings and much beyond a mere thinking robot. Academic scheduling has to be built upon a holistic approach and only then will it give desired results. We find a lot of individuals who have had an excellent academic follow record but failed to face the real and bigger challenge in life. In addition, social and ethical values are being lost and neglect of moral science in school curriculum could well be one of the reasons why children who are the citizens of tomorrow show lesser compassion toward society and values. A strong foundation of schooling can be the best base for not only the children's education but also for their future. Parents also have to support this undertaking.
