DNA : Daily News & Analysis November 30, 2011 | Rana, Niyati Figures released by the National Crime Records Bureau show 26% jump in student suicide numbers in 2010 compared to 2006. Number of suicides rose to 7,379 in 2010. This means, 20 students killed themselves everyday in 2010.
Hooked on to social networking sites, a teenaged student hacks his friends’ account and posts obscene comments. The action was borne out of sheer jealousy to tarnish a fellow student, who was brighter in studies.
And the list of such incidents is endless…
This indeed paints a grim picture of modern day youth, who are going astray unable to take up societal and emotional pressures. While experts blame it on flawed education system and lack of guidance at the right time for such unfortunate incidents, the Sheth CN Vidyavihar has taken up the cudgels to help bridge the gap between the youths, their families and educational institutes. Together with the Indian School Psychology Association, the authorities of the two institutes want to start a centre to train teachers and parents in child and adolescent psychology. They believe this can be possible through proper understanding of the students’ and societal psychology. website how to get rid of pimples overnight
The centre, proposed to be set up at the Sheth CN Vidyavihar at Ambawadi, will focus on counseling students, parents, teachers and provide them training to take up pressure. It will also help them chart the right way for a bright future.
The centre, however, is only on papers right now and needs to be approved by the board of trustees at the school. However, if everything goes as per plan, it will start by the next academic year. The proposal for such a centre arose during a visit to the school campus by seven delegates from the Indian School Psychology Association last week for discussion on the issues staring at the education system.
Director of the Vidyaihar, TJ Purani said, the centre would focus on aspects like removing exam phobia and explain students how to accept failure and stress importance on the competitive spirit. The centre will also focus on explaining negative behavioural part to students, teachers and also parents and teach them how to get rid of it. Through the centre efforts will be made to change students’ mindset to value-based education system from the existing result-based education system.
“The aspiration of the burgeoning middle class pushes youngsters to perform or perish. In such fierce scenario, we feel support system for students from institute and family is sometimes missing. The centre would focus on providing counseling to students from all schools, parents and also train students to break the ice and guide students at the right time to avoid such situations,” Purani said.
