2019 WAEC GCE ENGLISH LANGUAGE ANSWERS
I blame the teachers. It is their job. When I was in school my parents were not educated enough to the level I was being taught, But I had good teachers and was therefore able to learn self regulation of school studies.
Teachers now blame everything on parents. Children are not held accountable and neither are they. There is a hard enough expectations to work to keep ends meeting. I am a single mum, After picking my son from after school club and getting home at 7, There is no way I will tell him to go do math after a whole day of school. Where does the learning end and childhood start, . Its like employers telling you to take our work home without additional pay. An expectation for a 6 yr old to read and do math 7 days a week is ridiculous and unattainable. Do I sit and catch up with him before his bedtime or do I force more school work that he should have done in school? How do you teach him moderation? This is why we have a generation that is constantly working, Because we do not know when to shut down and relax.
Not to mention the material provided is never satisfactory. What I did in school is not what he is doing.
I remember when I was working less hours and used to have evening lessons with my child, I once taught him to o his sums the way I know and school teacher told me off because my way did not fit around the school curriculum which means they cannot mark his right answers and he has to do it their complicated route. They told me to stick to his level and not teach him ahead because he then got bored in class when everyone was struggling with what we did at home ages ago. I found that extremely off putting and limiting.
This is the same problem I had while he was in nursery and took his sweet time to talk, The teachers called me in to tell me to speak one language at home and that is English, Because we spoke 3 languages at home they have problems understanding his mixed sentences. I remember being particularly angry at that suggestion as it felt nothing but discrimination. He had not problems making friends and telling a parent to limit his child’s knowledge for the benefit of making life easy for the teachers is ridiculous.
If they won’t let me teach my way they should be able to fully do it their way and not add extra expectations on what is already a hard time.
