“Suicide is becoming a trend nowadays”: Educational Institutes
Aurangabad, March 10, Aurangabad: “Today’s educational system has become so much of a pressure that students cannot even share it with either parents or teachers about the real thing going in their mind.” Said Mr. Kulkarni, branch manager at Aakash Institute.
No. of educational suicides have increased in the past few years and have resulted into a grave situation for the parents as they are constantly worried about the future of their child. Youth suicides is one of the major issues of India and mainly people blame the educational system of India. “Students get stressed up a lot because of the educational pressure may it be from family or coaching classes. Students get tensed to this extent that they don’t feel like sharing things with parents nor with teachers and finally end up with the decision to suicide.” Said one of the parent of a child studying in 12th grade.
Children have made it a trend instead of talking or discussing it with parents or teachers about their problems and their stress and pressure they are undergoing. Parents have blamed coaching classes for the stress level but have never understood that they were the ones who actually had put the pressure on them. Teachers say that children usually fear that their parents will scold them and in some cases beat them if they score less and hence get stuck under the trap of pressure and stress and when the limitations increase or the pressure increases up to a certain level, children finally end thinking about suicide.
