With tuition hikes among private schools, parents are forced to transfer their kids from private to public schools. And when tuition increases to as much as 30% with very low family earnings, I can’t really blame the parents. Thus, the government schools are enduring more and more entrants – new ones and transferees to hit the coming school year.
This indeed adds to the pressing problem of overcrowded classrooms with limited number of teachers and resources including books and classrooms. And, when teacher has greater number of students more than he can handle, you can’t really expect instruction can be as effective.
I hope families can enjoy more wages, fewer taxes and quality public schools, so, kids can graduate with the right skills to equip them for better jobs.
