Only State education department can fool every child no matter whether they enter school building or not

Nonika Singh says students “..in schools, ...., where the fear of failing hangs over student’s minds like a morbid cloud which can engulf their precious childhood in a vice like grip”. 

So well to do students have no incentive to do more...till class eight. What is horrible is the “Harpreet Malwai, a teacher of computer education at Carmel Convent School, Chandigarh, sees no reason why failure should be a driving factor. She says, “Actually, children should not be failed till Class X, for by holding back children in school classes we ensure that they are held back in life too.” She further adds that since each child is special, creative and uniquely capable, he or she can choose his or her muse after Class X, a period in which students are forced to study all subjects.
