Time and again, several schools have been setting a low standard of education. Instead of guiding students in the right way to shape their future, a few educational institutes set a baseless question paper, asking questions that have no significance. In such a development, a private school in the Khandwa district of Madhya Pradesh set a General Knowledge exam question paper asking useless questions.
Useless questions for the students
The school in MP asks its students in the question paper of Class VI the name of Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan’s son. The parents’ body of school’s students, for the misconduct, has demanded strict action against the school from the state’s school education department.
Witnessing the profoundness of the matter, the Khandwa District Education Officer (DEO) Sanjiv Bhalerao issued a show-cause notice to the school named Academic Heights Public School.
The parents’ body head Anish Arjhare asserted, “Everyone knows that the film actor couple’s son is named Taimur and this is also a fact that another Taimur (Taimur Lang) had unleashed terror on our country in the past. Still, the couple named their son Taimur. It’s extremely unfortunate that students have been asked to write Taimur’s name in the exam.”
He added, “Instead of asking such a question to students, questions on the lives of our historical icons like Mata Jijs Bai, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, and Devi Ahilya Bai should have been asked by the school in its question paper. We demand sternest possible action against the school, by ordering its closure.”
Khandwa District Education Officer (DEO) Sanjiv Bhalerao, also stated, “The parents’ body of the school too has objected to the question and I too individually feel that such a question which hurts sentiments of parents shouldn’t have been asked in the question paper.”
The Director of the school, Shweta Jain, reported that “Question papers are set by a Delhi-based organisation, with which the school is affiliated.” She also gave her opinion and said that “It was wrong to associate the question with religion or communalism. It should be seen as an effort to enhance knowledge.”
The name of Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan’s child, in no way possible, enhances the knowledge of students. And, there’s a lot more than the family tree of the Khan couple that a student needs to be taught in the school, as what they learn during their adolescence contributes a lot in shaping their future.
