“In the recent results announced by CBSE, girls once again outperformed boys with a pass percentage of 87.56%. Boys could only score a distant 77.77%. The overall pass percentage this year is 82%. Last year it was a shade better at 82.70%.” read a renowned newspaper in a paragraph of its article. In this competitive era, the students face a heavy pressure while choosing between ‘work hard and get rewarded’ and ‘get a bit loose and lose big time’. All this pressure, though works like a wonder for a few who seize their opportunities, others just break and shatter. And the result of this is very evident in our daily lives. Boys turning to drugs, other substances of addiction and hooliganism at ages when they should study and play and just be happy. So is the current trend responsible for this mess or is the education system?
“Empty mind is devil’s workshop”, a very fine quote clearly tells why the youth has turned to these menaces. Their dreams that now seem to be a hazy future because of tough competition, allow frustration to creep in. This frustration leads them to seek mental pleasures from other sources be it wrong or good. Now if the education is kept balanced between skills and values and if values are inculcated right since kindergarten, this can be easily tackled. But sadly, in India, though we do have that balance, it still is considered as a subject and an opportunity to score, not to learn something useful out of it. But how much of a responsibility does the system should bear to make things correct?
Unfortunately, the system does it’s job here. The ones that don’t are actually the parents. Even though no parents want their kids to be a hoodlum, yet unintentionally do they pretty often trust their kids too much that their wards start taking advantages. Imagine the kid who just died of rash driving at an age of 15. He doesn’t have a license yet and shouldn’t be allowed to drive anyways but that’s the truth. As big a responsibility it is for the system to keep the youth guided, bigger becomes the responsibility of the parents who sometimes get blinded by the love they have for their kids. This perfect balance will help them keep in track and ensure them a brighter future

Parents of children studying in private schools of Delhi/NCR are aggrieved over the steep hike in school fees every year. Several CBSE-affiliated schools among others have reportedly hiked fees by 20 percent this year. The agitated parents have lodges several complaints, as a result of which the education department decided to monitor 122 CBSE-run, a dozen ICSE and thousands of state-run schools on May 14, 2015.
This tussle between parents and private schools is not a new one. Similar complaints were filed in the High Court in the year 2009. Parents have been seen lamenting over the lack of apathy and legislation in private schools. According to them, if the fee keeps increasing at this rate, Class 12 students will be paying an exorbitant amount of Rs 8 lakh per annum by the year 2020. However, now this long-standing tussle between parents and private school managements over “exorbitant” fees may soon come to an end with the Delhi government drafting a legislation to monitor and control fees.
The Bill, currently being worked on by the Department of Education, is going to be on the lines of the Fee Regulation Act in Tamil Nadu, passed in 2009, a top official at the directorate of education said. The proposed “Regulation of Collection of Fees Bill” may be introduced in the Assembly session next month. It proposes to constitute a high-powered committee headed by a retired judge to decide on the tuition charges levied by private schools.
If all goes fine, parents will not have to shell out a humongous amount on the school education of their children.
