The pain of losing attachment with ones child

This woman was out to pour the bitterness of her heart something that has been a pain for the last nine years. According to her, she was taking care of her first-born daughter as it is the norm and pride of every mother. She took her through primary school education and proceeded taking her to a secondary school.

But after the completion of the second term in secondary school things took a new turn after the daughter’s aunt (the sister to her husband) came into the picture. This is due to the fact that the aunt without asking the parents took custody of the child and started taking care of the child’s needs even paying for her school fees.

Things went on well for the family even though their daughter moved on to live with her aunt. She then completed her secondary school education and proceeded on to the college level. Then after completion of the college, she got herself an attachment for the sake of the on job experience. All this while her daughter was okay with the arrangement and her family didn’t take notice any problem for the long that she was residing with the aunt.

Then her daughter approached her parents and told them that she was in the dating zone and as it was a healthy relationship, she was thinking of taking it to the next level and get married to her lover. But as it is the culture as per the community that the family belonged to ,her husband had to pay dowry to their daughter’s mother before they can allow the daughter to proceed on with the plans .This was not taken well by the girl’s aunt and an elder uncle who said that even though they are the girl’s parents, they have no business in her life since they have not been involved in her educating. Now what seemed to be a goodwill gesture on the side if the aunt now turned to be something with other motives.

Now this woman said that they are already pushing on with the wedding scheduled to take place on this coming Saturday yet she feels that she has been sidelined as the biological mother. What’s more hurting her husband’s family has been making comments that her daughter has other parents no wonder she was not invited for dowry negotiations and so she does not know anything about the family where her daughter is getting married.

So she said that she has no problem with the wedding pushing through but hoped that things ought to be done with some light on the issue. What’s more nobody ever approached them as her rightful parents and so they have been treated of people with no say for being poor. Let her husband’s family own up their mistake, and make sure that there are consultations because she is supposed to be happy for her daughter but not sad.

Ranking of Schools In The National Examinations

Here in my country, the class eight and form four candidates always sit for their final examinations at the end of each year. Class eight marks the end of the primary school education where the next entry is to the secondary school education. For the form four leavers, theirs is to enter the university or middle level colleges.

For the last few years, after the Education Secretary released the exam results, the daily newspapers were left with the task of ranking the performance of schools in the entire country. The list showed the first 100 schools in the entire country. The worst performing schools were also revealed and there was always a comparison of the top 100 schools of their performance the previous year thus showing an improvement or a deviation from the last exam.

But the ranking criteria of schools have since been replaced by only the names of the three best performing students. The reason for the non-ranking criteria was to avoid unnecessary competition.

This has not gone well with the head teachers and parents who think that they ought to know how the performance of their respective schools nationally. We have those who are concerned with education at the county level felt that knowing the performance of a school is important since this will guide on what is to be done to improve the performance of such a school. They also think that this new criteria kills the morale of the students.

The argument has been that if a school failed in a certain exam and then remedies are put in place and the school improves, then things are surely headed to the right direction. But if the performance of a school is kept in the dark, then one may not know what to try and do better.

I guess these are some of the measures that the government is trying to implement in the already criticized education system. In fact we have those who are calling for general overhaul of the entire education system to something that will encourage students to be more creative and not exam oriented as it is by now.
