Now we have "High Performance Schools". Sound spiffy good eh? But is it really all a big deal? Well to parents yes it is. And when parents want to give the best education possible they would do anything. Change careers, stop having affairs, stop thinking of sports cars and other money consuming activity just so that the fruit of their loins be the best investment they aver made.
We had the run of "Smart Schools" which a lot of companies made a fast buck and the project turned to dust in no time. Sad to know and see that our education system is somehow brought to a flee market rush. Could there be a light at the end of this "High Performance School" tunnel?
Maybe.... but it is for certain that these schools would bring more benefit to the property sector first. It is just marketing hype after all. Does it mean those who can't afford the areas where these odd power schools are situated will be left with stupid children? That is left to wonder even more.
Lets put it this way, as parents wouldn't you want your children to be smart in every way possible in the most normal way available? Does it mean that the "normal" schools are a breed for future stupidity and incompetence? I serious think it does not. How can one expect a perfect stranger to teach all there is to know about growing up? Unless you want your children to be a thick text book. That is pretty daft if you ask me.
All schools are equal by right. They carry the same curriculum.... with teachers trained in the same public system. So what is with the fluff? Well it is just so that there is a so called a valid reason to dispense the nice round sum of moolah. What a a genius! Make the good schools even better but neglecting the rest because they are not performing. How to perform if there is not enough resources to go around in the first place?
Well at least the teachers will see their property bought with government loan appreciate in value. Nice.... very nice.
