12th Class question papers for 9th students?

Sunday - March 3, 2019 11:19 am , Category : WTN SPECIAL

WTN- In a bizarre reflection of the shoddy affairs in government schools in Madhya Pradesh, recently in Harda district, students of Class 9 were given to solve English test paper of Class 12th in their school exams. To make matters worse, the question papers where afterwards collected back from the homes of the Class 9 students and they were asked to appear for the exam again on Saturday, where they would get the correct question paper.

Surprisingly, none of the 9th students raised any doubt while solving the Class 12 paper and happily went home writing their exam. None of the teachers on exam duty could locate the mistake and take the necessary step in time. A 2-3-hr long exam ended without a fuss. Either the students did not attempt most of the questions, or they had no clue about the syllabus, or it might be possible that they never attended classes to even know what would come in the exam!

Be what it may, the surprising factor is that the teachers or the principal had too no clues about the gross mistake. Or did they deliberately let the exam to continue? This, happening at a government high school just 10 kms from the district headquarters, raises multiple questions on the condition of our school education system. In the 21st century India, if we cannot get even our basics right, how can we expect to dream big? This is a case of gross negligence and unaccountability on the part of the authorities and those in charge of the affairs must be questioned. Question papers go through several layers of checks and authorisations before they reach the students. Unless there is a deliberate callousness, chance is little that everyone will miss the blunder all through the long layered process of preparation, transportation, opening and distribution of the question papers.

Were the students too silenced into submission by the teachers to hide their blunder? Unless a proper probe is initiated questions will abound. In India no one gets to know what happens to the probes. Most probes are botched and the reports dumped or manipulated. Hundreds of probes are going on at any given time in the country but the outcome of none is assured and their veracity under cloud. But this one incident points towards the deeper rot that plagues the system in general. Today it is only for these reasons that well-off parents are reluctant to send their kids to government school. No one knows what blunder can happen the next moment. Sometimes it is poisonous food in mid-day meals, sometimes it is the case of wrong vaccination, at other times it might be building collapse or some fire incident – government schools are always in news for the wrong reasons and the common factor is – all of these mishaps and blunders happen due to negligence and unaccountability.

Unless the governments spruce up their education and healthcare setup by extra attention, proper and timely funding, and transparency in appointments, transfers, promotions, inquiries and adequate budgetary allocations, we will fail to rise as a powerful nation because without a very strong foundation of education, no society can ever be great. -Window To News
