Indians Score 100% in Discipline
Indians in Malaysia are getting so emotional and fighting over rights and Tamil school. But we fail to understand the grassroots problem. We forget to encounter the discipline problem of our Indian students. The first that Indian students commit is breaching simple school rules. Schools forbid eyebrow threading, dying hair, long fingernails and dress anomalies. This is what our students purposely commit to. We complain that teachers are racist and bias. We don’t think students are with good discipline and a good academic record complains on these issues.
Schools have special rules for female students like control of size and colour of scrunches, wrist watch and earrings, size of the pottu. But what our girls do? Hair dyed or the current trend, highlighting the hair, growing nails, shaped eyebrows and worst wearing uniform which is tight revealing the body shape, above knee length, sleeve folded up and buttons opened. So, this is how we portray the culture of Indians?
Next are boys, apart from school uniform stand out anomalies, for example, not tucking shirt in or hanging necktie, discipline problems like drinking and smoking, playing truant as well as wearing studs flout school rules. On top of it, they joined gangster groups and getting themselves ready to be included in the police encounter list.
Both this genders don’t perform well neither in their education nor co-curricular activities. A discipline problem both school going boys and girls have in common is disobedience. They refuse to relent to authority, being rebellious and intractable. Why is this happening? Whose fault is this? Let’s see what others have to say about this.
“If this problem arises, the students are not to be blamed. It’s the parents fault. They don’t bring up their children well from small. What’s the point complaining now? The best we can do is seeing them happily ruining their life,” says Maniraj Prabhakaran.
“Yes, we are very sad on what is happening. I am a school teacher as well and I can’t take the attitude problem our Indian students have. It’s a great disgrace to our society. We Indian teachers in school always feel embarrassed with our students. On top of it, when we call the parents, they are fighting and scolding the teachers. I don’t think we are fully responsible for it. Parents should take charge of it,” says Mrs Anbarasi.
“How much can you educate them? In my class, I see the seriousness of other students from another race but our Indian students will never learn the importance of education in life. They think things can be so easy later. This is why our society is always looked down,” said Nathan.
“How can we talk bad about them (Indian Students), they are the one got us to be proud of tying thaali in school at the age of 14, highest running away from home record, highest abortion record, highest boyfriend or girlfriend record and what else we need. We are proud of them,” said sarcastically by Kumar an NGO leader.
This article discussed about discipline problems in schools only. We haven’t touch on many other topics that is happening wildly in the schools among Indian students. Whose fault? Who is responsible?
