Not us. Not just yet. Perhaps. lol. However, a distant relative is. She has pulled out her Std 3 daughter because she says she doesn’t want her daughter to grow up timid afraid of teachers, afraid of everything. So she is going to home school her. However, I guess she can’t be used as an example of whether parents will pull out their kids from Chinese School. She has taken her son out from Chinese school to Kebangsaan or Public School to homeschooling and Private school. Yup! She has tried all four avenues.
Another one of my daughter’s classmate left this week for a private school. Yet another will leave at the end of this term in about a month.
While another parent in my daughter’s class went to school to collect report card copies etc to be submitted for her application for a private secondary school. My daughter is only in Std 4. I haven’t even decided where to send her in secondary school and people are applying already?
Education system and education choices here are in a sad state. I don’t know where to send my girl to in Secondary school and we are hanging on to Chinese school despite the crazy homework load and it IS crazy. Everyday, all she does is go to school, have meals in between, do homework and sleep. There is not time for ANYTHING else! I feel sorry for her. Heck. I feel sorry for me. Ok. Enough Ranting. I must leave my energy for homework guidance later in the day.
Tell me about it MG. My girls’ life is only centered on school, homework, tuition, revision and sleep! Now, even no time for TV. I hope I don’t have to pull my #2 out from Chinese school.
Mine does not have tuition. They have piano once a week and that is more than we can handle! Your #2 sounds like she needs to let loose kind of personality, probably will be stiffled in Chinese school yah.
I feel the same too. Feel really sorry for my girls, they look tired every day, and I look tired too.
It really is very tiring.
Maybe it’s the school? I’m getting worried now since my daughter will be standard 1 next year.
My son is in the same school in Std 2. He is still rather relaxed. 😛
P will go to a chinese school. I hope by then, there will be some changes to the edu sys. If I get in to the chinese sch of my choice..then its a good one whereby the current principal is not academic rounded.
its just the wrong timing, to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. We are very lucky because QQ is happy being in Chinese school since she is in new syllabus. Her academic level is low compare to her peers, but I am fine with it. She comes home playing and watching tv after finishing her very limited homework. With a low expectation, we are all happier too.
