【信報:升學專家有話兒】考試機器

初夏6月,小智帶妹妹來辦公室,直截了當說明希望今年9月能送本來明年考DSE的妹妹負笈英國念預科。 

 

何以如斯迫切?

 

小智不諱言說香港教育不夠好。 

 

小智是末代會考生,當年努力讀書是為了做會考尖子,可以避過艱難的高考,拔尖入大學,誓要考得6個A或以上。於是無所不用其極,上名師補習班,課餘狂操卷之外,還千方百計搜羅名校Mock卷喪做,恍似會考乃人生唯一的目標。 

 

小智求仁得仁,終於考取了8個A,原校升中六等拔尖,沒有了會考的目標,開始變得懶散,hea讀。卻因有8A做護身符,成功拔尖入港大環球商業學,如是者順順利利以優異成績畢業,輾轉加入了跨國企業集團當管理顧問,前途似錦之際,才驚覺身邊同事無論在國際視野、營商智慧、未來透視、思維創意、 文化修養,甚至待人接物、溝通、聆聽與理解都比自己強,撫心自問自己乃尖子,且以一級榮譽畢業,還是不夠,究竟是哪個環節出現了問題;經過這一年的思考,小智開始明白關鍵在教育。 

 

小智深切體會香港教育缺乏空間和配套,從來只用考試作為指標,上學為了考試,考試為了升學,其中核心全皆圍繞考試範圍,跳出範圍框框的空間有限,無誘因啟動思考能力,也發掘不到個人潛藏,遑論營造學習智慧和生活創意,只營營役役活像機器,難怪一直以來香港的醫學、法律、會計、工程的人才最捧,因為毋須創意,毋須思考,毋須視野,可以不懂文化藝術,更可以話不投機,只要按步就班努力進修,就一定成為専業人士。如此一來,整個學習制度就為了培養循規蹈矩的專業人才,非循規的材料,豈非給香港教育淹沒!

 

西方的教育從來以生活為學習基礎,先引起學生的好奇心,然後因才施教,沒有規範和程度,只有指標和測試,目的是為學生定立未來學習方向,並具備配套和資源度身訂造為支援學生未來發展,而非為了滿足範圍和制度。小智要身體力行才能看穿,於是急切送妹妹到英國,期望妹妹不會重蹈覆轍,在另一個國度的教育氛圍下得到啓發,認知自己,以至有能力透視未來,打造愜意順遂的人生路。
