99.8%..and counting!

CBSE class 12th result was recently declared and the topper scored 99.8%

I wish both of them (the toppers) all the best for their life and future endeavors

However the way these results are being displayed on every school’s social media pages and websites made me really think hard about our Education System!

We teach our kids about:
– percentages
– marks
– grades
– languages (new in the curriculum)

But I wonder who and how are our kids going to learn

– Resilience
– Failure
– Perseverance
– Growth Mindset
– Enjoying process more than results

Remember, it’s not that the toppers don’t face difficulties in life and that the failed can’t go on to make a revelation.. It’s all about ‘Life Skills’ and Who will take the responsibility to teach Life skills more than grades
