I think this a good move. It allows the education system to re-focus itself back into why children are in school, which is to receive education.
Granted, parents and schools now will not be able to compare each other hence reducing pressure on teachers especially on being too result oriented.
We always complaint that our education system is 'too exam oriented', but the truth is, the system became that way because there was way too much pressure on teachers to produce straight A's or become the 'best school'. All these leads to unhealthy problems like leak of exam questions, students asked to memorize (and we create robots), and heads of schools pitting themselves against each other to ensure their school is top. All in the name of publicity, if you ask me.
Now, without such pressure, teachers can focus on imparting knowledge and develop skills and students as humans.
Perhaps some may say, without any yardstick, there's no point of the exams, but I tell you frankly, teachers and schools will still have to produce quality students despite this move because heads of schools would still compare results and achievements hence pushing programs and staff to ensure quality education. There's also a lot of dedicated teachers who care about the students and how they perform.
Mind you that parents or the public can still compare results by collecting their own data and compare it with other schools (kalau rajin lah), and some schools would still want to tell the world they had bla bla bla number of students with straight A's in the paper. On top of that, I'm pretty sure meetings between heads of schools at national, state and even division level would still have such comparison drawn up internally, hence ensuring schools with poor results get the attention they need to improve. wedding dresses for over 50
The only difference now is that such comparison is not made public, and education quantity is not made a competition. This style of announcement removes public pressure on school academic ranks and enables teachers not to worry about how many students get A, and that's some good pressure released off their backs. In fact, it also solves over-crowding of certain schools because parents now do not know which school has better results.
IMO, academically, all schools are the same. They have qualified teachers, and are using the same syllabus. The only difference is how the student reacts in class and during lessons, and that's what makes or breaks them.
Well, personally, I think A's are great, but if it comes at the cost where students that are weak are neglected, and teachers are pushed so hard that they start bending rules just to get more A's, it's just not worth it.
Education should be fun, learning and attracting. It shouldn't be made into an intense competition because at the end of the day lah kan, we all want our kids to be able to read, write, and do well in life.
But then again, this thoughts are coming from someone who tells his friends not to send their kids to a school he is teaching in.
p/s: I should have made this into a blog post. pfft.
