In the picture above, a child flies from one cage to the other cage like a bird.One cage isnamed school, and the other is named cram school. What a sarcastic picture. There is nofreedom left for the children who cannot enjoy the supposed cheerful vacation.
Why cannot the children enjoy the vacation that belongs to them Who push the childrenfrom one cage to the other What should we do to help the trapped children The three questionssolved, the above picture will not exist any more. The answer to the first question is hiddenwith the superficial one being acquiring more knowledge, and the fundamental one is thatparents demand more scores from their children. They expect their children to be able to scoremore through attending various cram schools at the cost of their children’s supposedly splendidvocation. So it is the parents who pursue quick success that push the children from one cageto the other. To free the children, the parents should put emphasis on the children’s physicaland mental health rather than the score.
As is known to all that pursuit of high scores has long been a phenomenon in China, thecause of this phenomenon is hard to be uprooted. Therefore, we should emancipate thechildren in the mind and return the joy of childhood to children gradually.
