Hyderabad school slammed for posting nursery toppers list

October 3, 2019

A school in Hyderabad is facing strong criticism on social media for installing a hoarding with pictures of of children as young as three years old and calling them class 'toppers'.

The hoarding was an advertisement on which the school's name Priya Bharathi High School is written and pictures of 44 'toppers' from nursery to Class 1 have been pasted . A score has also been mentioned against each child's name.

The school is located in Kothapet and claims its recognised by the Telangana government.

This is shocking as generally at such ages children are kept in an atmosphere where they learn by playing.

People on Twitter criticised the school for pushing the children into competition.

"Ridiculous, let them play and have fun. We urgently need regulatory mechanism for pre-schools in the country," said Sunisha.

"Tells you everything that is wrong about our primary school system," tweeted Dr Mohan Kumar, India's former ambassador to France.

Another tweet said such schools should be banned. "Just imagine the pressure on children who couldn't make it here and their parents who take this as a matter of pride. These are not teachers but killers of childhood," said Dhiraj Singla.
