教育殺死誰?

最近有多宗關於香港青少年自殺率的新聞評論,談及香港整體的自殺率有下滑的跡象,但是 15嵗以下的青少年輕生的數字卻有上升。


幸好傳媒對青年輕生之類的題目予以關注,我們才不致於忽視這種社會問題。但即使如此,我們也必須花更大心力去將青少年輕生的根本原因連根拔起。


當然,死記硬背的讀書方式、一年四次的密集式考試和考入頂尖大學的強烈競爭並不是短期內能扭轉的現象。根據去年八、九月為4000間中小學學生所做的調查發現,有四成學生於新學年有失眠、焦慮和壓力超標等問題,而他們都不知道如何面對。


最近一位精神病學家提過,高壓學習環境以及仍未做好上學的心理準備正是這現象的主因。而家長在這種情況下扮演一個非常重要的角色。


若孩子在家中得不到父母足夠的支持,他們很容易會崩潰。家長應該避免在孩子面前發脾氣,否則會嚴重影響他們的心情,甚至引起孩子的自殺傾向。


簡單如開學天的一個擁抱,簡單一句「我們會一直支持你」,並陪伴著孩子走過種種難關,如考試測驗、功課等,能大大減輕他們的壓力,也會降低孩子的自殺傾向。香港家長時常想著望子成龍,卻忽視了家長為孩子付出的重要性。
公立學校預算有限,未必能夠為學生提供充足的心理輔導,而我們的學生則選擇了另外的舒壓方法-寫Blog在社交平台如Facebook上分享等等。所以爸媽,在責備孩子前也不妨多了解一下。

#School Analysis
Considering its reputation, Oundle School may not catch up to Eton, Wycombe Abbey and else top elite schools. However, Oundle’s academic performance is among the best in the United Kingdom. As a traditional top boarding school, Oundle pays huge attentions to student’s holistic development, by providing them diversified extra-curricular activities. In addition, Oundle still implements the House Dining System, which is rarely remaining among uk boarding schools. It is also one of the reasons why Hong Kong parents making a beeline for.
The ratio of teachers and students in Bromsgrove School is 1:8, which is lower than the average among uk boarding schools. In addition, according to my school visit experience, Bromsgrove has the best facilities, that it is undoubtedly one of the best three campuses in the UK. Besides, Bromsgrove spares no expense to provide students comfortable environment, it even invests on the nearby hotel and transfers it into dormitories. As a result, students can possess the “5-star enjoyment” on campus. To conclude, Bromsgrove is definitely a prospective and globalised uk boarding school.
Brighton College is Britain’s premier private school and one of the Hong Kong parents’ favourites. To understand a boarding school, despite of looking at its educational tenet, diversified extra-curricular activities and academics results, it is essential to observe the boldness of the principal. 10 years ago, after Mr. Richard Cairns taking up the duty of the Brighton College’s principal, the school ranking raises from the 150th to the top 20th. In addition to promoting educational reformation, Mr Cairns is such a good principal, that he still strives for maintaining students’ curiosity at the same time.
