【信報】學業出色源自開心

香港學生所面對的學業壓力出名大,那股沉重我從與家長傾談間都感受得到。應接不遐地收到各方家長查詢留學英國的資訊,當中不少都出於心痛子女在香港讀書讀到身心俱疲。堆積如山的功課考試、如狼似虎的競爭威脅,再不是傳統學校或個別名校獨有的現象,就連向以輕鬆見稱的國際學校,據說在這方面亦開始逐漸「本地化」。

很多家長向我反映,校方要求父母對學生提供學習支援,換言之番學以外,家長還應自掏腰包為仔女搵補習。我不久前跟著名Oundle School 入學處的Caitriona Redding 見面,Caitriona剛巧是課外學習支援的專家,我們不其然談起香港學生的補習成風。她以專家角度分析,香港的補習文化是港生普遍缺乏解難能力的元兇,因為學生都倚賴補習老師為他們提供答案和解決方法。他們習慣像填鴨般張口將標準答案囫圇吞棗地照單全收,完全沒有把問題分析解構亦沒有為尋求答案而費盡思量。久而久之,學生的分析能力、獨立思考、批判思維都完全被扼殺怠盡。

我深信香港大部分同學仔都是無可選擇下被補習、被扼殺思考的受害者。作為關心教育的社會一分子,我們不禁要問:其實這樣的制度,我們到底想培養出怎樣的下一代?

中國人相信棒下出孝子,大概亦認為高壓的教育環境會是作育人才的搖籃。不過最近全球最大型對青少年學習的評審報告卻發現,要有卓越的學習表現,關鍵不在於每日有幾多功課,放學要補習幾小時,而是開心。

這個調查了全球十五歲學生的大型報告,探討青少年的學術成就與歸屬感以及「康健」之間的關係。權威機構OECD將「康健」定義為能令學生活得開心充實的心理、認知、社交及生理質素。數據顯示,要在學校表現出色,並非單靠認知智能,而是講求同學生活上各方面都健康平衡,最後所得到的結論是:「同學仔感覺越良好,學習便越佳。」

原來學習的關鍵在於開心和平衡,但放眼香港,到底有幾多學生在排山倒海的測驗考試中活得平衡?終歸又有幾多同學真正講得上在快樂學習?
