I being the student of pre-engineering found ‘LAALTAIN ’quite interesting. It is catering the demands of students by covering international updates, regional socio-political issues, literature, so on and so forth. I’m writing to you because I think its audience is vast and multifaceted.
I want to highlight the issue of teachers’ conduct in the class. Teachers make or break the personality of a student. Our teachers, especially those of public institutions give too much preference to rote learning and carbon copying the text books. They don’t care to clear the concepts of the students. Moreover they focus on just ending the curriculum as soon as possible, without making students understand it. They discourage critical thinking and questioning. In my class I was considered the most ‘disobedient’ student merely because I asked questions. I wish these issues be addressed at the highest level.
