Do we skip sections while reading a novel? Would we not fall if we skip steps while climbing a staircase? Does anyone wish for the foundations of their home-sweet-home to be fragile? Not a simple answer to a simple question! But are we not mistaken if we even perceive it to be so simple a question, while it is a dilemma, forsooth?
You may wonder, why on earth would I refer to such a simple situation as a dilemma? It is because when the pursuit of teaching is taken into consideration, most of us fail to perceive the subjects (mathematics, physics, chemistry and others) as ways of understanding nature, and overlook the everyday examples while teaching. In the modern academic environment, that we have survived past as for yet, we group students into categories considering certain criteria (generally age-group) and shape them all alike, failing to realize that everyone is one of a kind. We attend lectures, tutions, do home assignments and it goes on for a week when finally we have to take on the tests. And without even caring for how much we connected the dots, we move on to the next topic, which ironically says, “Coordinate Geometry!”
Why is it that we have become so ignorant to everything? It is not that we do not see what’s happening around but just that we do not care at all! Connecting these dots and filling the gaps is a must or else even if some-one somehow manages to cope up with the syllabus and survives, he would consequently hit the dead-end. Mentors and the parents need to realize that if someone fails in the examination, it happens, neither because the fundamentals of algebra or calculus, for instance, are difficult nor because the student is a failure, but because of the missing gaps accumulated over the time due to a time-constraint that was put on his learning.
I just wish that high-schools weren’t funneling kids into universities with the “I’ll find my passion there” mentality. Indeed it does not work that way. We are now entering into the Information Age, leaving behind the Industrial one, and there is a sheer need to revise the Industrial Age’s pyramidal structure of society. This pyramidal structure has had human labour as its broad base with the Bureaucrats possessing the mid-layer and the Capitalists and Creatives in the top-most tiniest layer. However, in the present Information Age, the bottom layer and even the middle layer has been taken over by machines, resulting in a natural cry of the society to broaden the top-most layer. We are now in a phase when a drastic revolution is to follow and we must realize and take part in it. It is vexing if we foolishly keep on manufacturing just “Another Brick In The Wall!” It is the time we muster our long -stagnant brains and realize our roles as being of a revolutionary!
