I think reading is one of the contributing factor that helps a student to expand their horizon, it allows students to think. Nowadays, education is the key towards everything, getting a degree gives you greater opportunities than none.
Our current education system is flawed. No doubt that the current systems that we have are helpful, but it is only till a certain extent. We were all taught to be a memorizing machine, most of the subjects we learnt are simply just taking it in and throwing it out, all the contents, word by words, on to a piece of paper. We need an improved system which allows students to think.
There are a few organizations that I work with that advocates education, one of them is Kalsom MASCA. We tailor our way of teaching based on the students’ interest. Each module of the programme is constructed along a development curve to ensure a progressive learning experience for everyone. In the end of the day, each module is made based on students’ personality and interest.
I believe that we should ask ourselves on what can we do for the country, and not expect others to change it for you, and to push ourselves to scale up and to do what we actually want.
