My 15 years old son came back from school today, looking very happy. He told me he is off for a week because the school wants them to stay home and prepare for their exam. I was like, huh? aren't your teachers suppose to coach you guys to prepare for exams. What are they doing now? Leaving the kids to deal with tutors for their homework help?
I guess it is the norm now. Almost every school going children have some form of tutoring because they do have enough time to fully concentrate on subjects they are weak in due to the large numbers in the class rooms.
