The Mela of International schools and IIT coaching centers

The enigma called International schools Or Concept schools

We in India add either of these nomenclatures to our schools very commonly.
May be because of our centuries old fascination for all that is ‘foreign’ and our misbelief that anything international is better than our own national status.



The graffiti on our walls and the hoardings above our heads scream about International schools, Global Schools, Planet school ( I am still waiting for a universe school or an alien school) or Concept schools.


I was always wondering as to what qualifies a school to be international or a concept based school !

Thanks to the IBO conference at Singapore that I attended last week, my fellow participants who are working in International schools have thrown some light into what can be called as an International school !

A school is not an international school unless it has students of different nationalities.
‘International Schools’ are those where children of expatriates study along with some nationals of the country it is located in.

Some international schools may have the national system of education, with IB methodology or IGCSE or a Cambridge affiliation.

A school that has IGCSE or Cambridge or IBPYP or MYP or DP but all the students are locals, then I suppose it need not be called as an international school but a school which offers international programmes.

Silver Oaks The School of Hyderabad need not call itself as ‘international’ because we do not have any foreign nationals. NRIs are plenty but at the end of the day they are Indians.

We are a school implementing the IBPYP methodology .

Our uniqueness lies in being the first school to take up IBPYP for a homogeneous group of middle and upper middle class at the lowest cost any IB school is charging in the entire world.
Perhaps we are the only functioning school to have taken up this kind of transformation.
To create a learning environment where nearly 1500 young people learn concepts above the content entitles us to call ourselves the concept school.
But this nomenclature has been so misused that we would not like to have it.


We have mastered the art of balancing the national curriculum and the transdisciplinary approach to learning with great ease.

With IB Primary Years Program in the Junior School and the CBSE in the Senior School we are emerging as a leadership school with one more step ahead-
The + 1 step with Grade XI from the 2010-11 session !
Inspite of all this I thank God that we can remain the humble and modest 'Silver Oaks The School of Hyderabad ' !


THE GREAT INDIAN IIT MELA

Education being on the concurrent list in our Constitution, both States and Centre organized their own Boards which actually led into further division of education than providing localized education.

Many states went into accommodating local needs and in the bargain ended up closing the wider gates to their students.

In AP a different kind of localization has gained prominence.
SSC has been branded as if it has the most extensive math and science.

This has been manipulated by the local private schools who mastered the art of coaching students with rote learning.
Extensive publicity on local results led the parents to believe that AP has a special place in IITs and Engineering colleges. And the few who make it to IITs are talked about as if they are the only ones to have gone there.

The fact is that 650 engineering colleges are here in AP out of the nearly 2300 engineering colleges in the country. Obviously everyone will get a seat because the colleges have to fill their seats.

Authentic sources say that 90% of the students who clear the IIT entrance are either CBSE or ICSE students. Rest of the 10% are from different state boards of the country.

The aggressive publicity of the corporate colleges misguide people into believing that anyone who joins them can walk into IITs. This year 4 lakh students are appearing for the IIT entrance from all over the country and out of that 80000 are from AP.

If we research is done I am sure we will come to know how many out of these are walking into the IITs. Aiming high is right but aiming for it without any aptitude is not right.

I heard that these corporate colleges charge minimal fee or no fee for the 2 yrs of Intermediate, if a student gets above 90% in 10th !

Robinhood used to rob the rich and pay the poor.
These corporate colleges rob the mediocre students and pay the above 90% students and in the end none of them make it to the IITs.

Emotions run high and sentiments take charge of parents. They feel it is their parental duty to provide the coaching.In fact the publicity is so convincing that parents cannot see beyond the 2 yrs coaching centers in intermediate.
Colleges only coach how to write for the entrance exams and when the student does not clear he is like ‘dobhi ka kutta- na ghar ka na ghat ka’. 2 years of rote learning will actually stint the thinking skills of these students. They come out like unfeeling robots.

Gullible people are led to believe that AP has a strong edge.

How publicity can mislead people !

Father of a 10th grader said...

We should encourage students to take up big challenges and appear for entrance exams like IIT VIT AIEEE. If they dont go for coaching how will they clear the competitive exams? there is so much competition in the world. If they dont do now they can never do afterwards.what will you say to that madam?

Pramila Raj said...

Maam I used to think that any school which has a big building and colourful furniture is international school.In our family we had many jokes also about it. after reading your article I understood more about international schools. you are right we people are crazy running after all that is foreign.if we ask these concept schools they may not be able to tell us what is a concept also but they have big ads about concepts.
I enjoyed reading your write up.

Anonymous said...

thanks for your wishes maam.today we had the test for IIT entrance maam.most of us only had tension and anxiety. i didnt see anybody eger to write the exam.parents were full of tension more than children.
all boys and girls look like they are entering into fire.i am glad its over but my parents wont allow me to relax. they want to see me studying day and night for all entranc exams.Frankly speaking me i dont know what mor i shud study.

Rajakumari said...

Dear Madam,
Your blog is another piece of cake which has a main ingredient ie power of knowledge. With the recent student council interviews we had in the school, starting from 3rd grade to 9th grade,i came to know that students are the mirror images of the school. They have clearly stated the importance of knowledge and are confident to face all the challenges ahead.
I always feel, is there a need of the word publicity for Silver Oaks?....
Jai Ho...

Beena said...

I know how you feel about these corporate colleges. You call them factories.Good to read an interesting article after a long time on your blog.I hope parents will see some sense and give respect to their children's abilities.

Ramakrishna S said...

Internationl schools have become a fashion in our country.even a small school in a town will have a name like ajay international prakash international etc etc. your blog. hotels, and industries also have international in their names.Like you I am also waiting for universe school or an alien school now. what a farce we live in.

Madhu said...

parents should see the outside world and understand that there are many professions where people are very sucessful.

Usha Kannuri said...

Coaching centres are like mushrooms everywhere.They are giving false beliefs to people.It is like a mafia.people who have any knowledge will see the reality.

Rachna said...

Your post just made me think .....are we just slaves to the names,how many of us really think why does a school call itself an international,global or concept school but we sure are willing to shell out a few pennies more coz its an 'international school' Wow we the educated misled lot.Its time we woke up.
This is for the 'Father of a tenth grader' i think challenge in life is not just being an IITian living a purposeful life is a challenge itself ....you make me feel as if all of us who have not given entrances or been to IIT are living a life not really worth living ... pardon me for saying this but please broaden your outlook.

ravalikareddy said...

very interesting and informative ma'am...
the write up on IIT mela was very good ma'am...these corporate colleges have lakhs and lakhs of students, but at the end of the year they publish saying that their college got 5 to 6 ranks in the first 10.parents get attracted to these false adds and publicities and often feel that their child shall be one among them, so they join their child, but they never inquire as to how many students have appeared for the same exam from the same college and have failed.
they never realise this ma'am...
publicity can do anything to people...

http://leadindiaconceptschools.com/default.aspx : i guess this helps people quench their thirst! IN MY OPINION it is the real concept school - growing good habits from the growing age...... I positively say that SILVER OAKS is unique... in tis own way.... and yes, i could not compare it to my college ( narayana ) .... i started suggesting my juniors not to join in this type of colleges unless they are determined to feed their mind with knowledge! this MELA reminded me of kumbh mela - which i had a lesson abt lot of people coming and joining the prayers! this method of college is corrupted(i would rather call it education poisoning) and the methodology is not encouraging to get KNOWledge! however as a pathfinder, even in this kind of painful situation (studying without time) i was able to cope up to cath u with the IIT and AIEEE .. this really freaked me out i was using my fingers as a comb in the busy schedule of this typical narayana group's schedule! ( which is actually only mugging up) ! the lecturers MAKE students mug ( JUG ) up!! i do get the point underneath all this work of their's !! is only !i can strongly say that THEY WANT ONLY NAME AND FAME ! i could understand all these because i am IN the pursuit!

gopi chand said...

And as i went to 'narayana college' after they called me to sign up for an "IC" intensive coaching batch! i asked them " what is the main idea behind this ? " they (staff) replied "we give intensive care to students which will let a student to get a good score in IIT or AIEEE" I asked them - " why didnt u make sure this kind of teaching is given to everyone? " they told " everybody cant pay so much! and the price should be reasonable!" so as i called it! isnt this kind of system is corrupted? isnt it a kind of business? to get fame! they want ranks! i dont know how far the college head expects students get knowledge but i know their intention in IC to prepare RANK HOLDERS below 10!! and the classes are held from morning 7 to evening 7!! the staff understood the mentality of indian parents and thats why it became a system of marketing - in my opinion! I have a lot more to share but not so relevant to this! thank you!

gopi chand said...

first and foremost thing is that ---- letting studets know in which kind of situation they are --- and allowing them to change!! but there isnt much time for a teenager to stake up with this! and letting "THEM" really know what they are upto! everybody says it but who des it? "the change starts with me!"

Sanket said...

great post maam

It showed what an international school actually means, with all these ads popping up here and there.
I'm pretty sure there are a lot of international branded schools out there who don't deserve it.

About the IIT and AP craze, I think it's is an issue of people walking blindfolded... just ignoring the facts.

geethanjali said...

This is a very good article which many of the parents,concept schools, techno schools etc have to read and understand what their child or students, need to professional in any sector of education and help them out.they should also understand the childs intrest and plans about their career.

After reading this article I think it would help many of the students to interospect themselves
,understand their abilities and then talk to their parents about their plans.This article would also spread the message of how to be self aware.

I would like to pas this article to the maximum number I can and ask them to do the same.

Your words were very inspiring mam.I thought that an international school was a school with a big building and big playground.I came to know that an international school is one which gives admission to foreign chidren.we should not join in colleges which give admission to children free of cost.this shows that those schools give importance to studies more than the students

academics.--madam,the way you distinguished between different syllabuses is awesome.Atleast now the parents will have a wise choice in their child's career.Iam proud to be an acorn of silver oaks.

it was really an inspiring blog 2build up our future.

Anu said...

Mam,
It's an eye openr post for the people who think that an international school means just with big building, A/C class rooms and high fee. Even me to thought as a school which has adopted any international methodology/syllabus is called as international school. But Iam sure now i know what an international school is through this post.
Parents please be aware that you are making your children to be in a factory for 2 years which generates just things/machines not a responsible citizen (which is an urgent requitrement of the society.)
Now I hope parents will understand the situation outside and give respect to their children's choices.parents should realise that they are not still children!they are young people who can definetly make difference in the society if you let them.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us mam.

chaitanya said...

I am chaitanya a grade 9 student of silveroaks.After reading this post I felt that the article 'the enigma called international schools or concept schools is an article which focuses on the way of studying in different types of schools like in international schools we donot find by heart learning but in local shcools we see this very often.
And the article 'The great Indian iit mela shows us the effect of teaching 'by heart'.
I feel that these two articles should be published in the newspaper to make people aware of this.

swathi.k IX C Silver Oaks said...

respected principal ma'am,

"you be the change you wish to be the world" was very interesting....
people say that they want to change this or change that in the world but don't think to change themselves this is exactly the truth the people nowadays became hypocrites preaching others but not following that!

your blog is very informative with the current issues.even i too feel the same that people say that they are from a international school or a concept school but they don't say that they are from a leadership school! but i am proud that i am from a leadership school....the current format of studies that are prevailing noe are completelt weird!schools say that these many students scored these many marks so they are going to IITians its a false belief! here in AP they follow mostly rote system not conceptual understand but to become IITians conceptual understanding is vital.

we the acorns of Silver Oaks are very lucky to have a principal like you ma'am!i would like to view more articles and i liked your photograph. i guess it is jurong east bird park in singapore...?

thank you ma'am,
bye!

chaitanya said...

Mam,
The article 'the enigma called international or concept schools'
shows the difference between the way of teaching in local and international schools.It also shows us that learning by heart doesnt enhance us in our reading and understanding skills.
The article 'the great Indian iit mela' makes the people understand about the effects of learning 'By heart'.It makes us understand that this type of learning can damage their childrens career.As a result many of the students think to join iit and get settled in their life but they will understand after joining the coaching.iit is also bettert for young learners who are interested in iit.
I feel that this article should be published in the news paper to make people under stand about the way of coaching in all schools.

K.V.SAI THARUN, IX-C said...

DEAR MAM,
I THINK UR IDEA ON THE MELA OF INTERNATIONAL SCHOOLS AND IIT COACHING CENTERS IS TRUE. THE OPINION ON WE HAVING A TAG CALLED THE INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL WAS REALLY A GOOD ONE

THE FACT THAT IIT COACHING AND SCHOOLS USE A KIND OF INSTRUMENTS CALLED PUBLICITY PROVES HOW THEY ARE ATTRACTING THE STUDENTS AND THEIR PARENTS TO GET INTO THEIR INSTITUTIONS

THE STUDENTS WHO ARE TAKING UP IIT, AIEEE AND ANY ALL INDIA EXAM FOR THAT MATTER SHOULD MAKE A WISE CHOICE OF WHAT THEY ACTUALLY WHAT TO BECOME ......

WE CAN'T ACTUALLY BLAME THE PARENTS BECAUSE EVERY PARENT THINKS THAT HIS CHILD SHOULD CREATE WONDERS IN THE WORLD. THE FACT THAT IN PRESENT DAYS PARENTS ARE NOT THINKING THAT THEIR CHILD SHOULD MAKE WONDERS BUT THEY WANT THEIR CHILD TO BE ONE AMONG FOUR LAKHS PROVES THAT HOW WRONG PUBLICITY CAN CAN CHANGE THE MINSETS

The information which is provided by Mrs.seetha murthy is very nice.
Telling aboutt the colleges and using the IB profiles is very challenging.The speech about what is an international school is excellent.The blog is very intriguing.telling about the IBPYP,IGCSC,MYP Methedologies and about the concepts can make a person LEADER i believe so.

Mam the article was totally good . Its true about the mind set of people in A.P aiming about IIT and JEE and international schools.Now a days schools are runned as buissiness not for the students welfare .People think benches and classrooms are schools but they not realizing that they are the reflectins of their future.hope they understand

Today most of the parents think that there child have to study in good school,but people who live near the road they also think that there child have to study in good schools.Government have to provide school to people who live near the roads.

sujani Nelakuditi said...

I can say that awareness of IIT and having corporate IIT training schools is helping out the state to get more of the students of AP into IIT's which may help for the progress of the state in the long run.

While the above is positive side we cannot ignore the negative impact it is creating among the students and parents. The students who fail to make it to IIT may not be mentally capable to venture into other areas and parents may not be able to think beyond the IIT.

Thanks for posting your views.They are really reflecting the current position of secondary education system in AP.

Kanak said...

Indeed, I must say I loved your post! Really great work...also, I'm glad to say that even if I don't study in an international school, I am still a Global citizen...Coming to IIT coaching, I am strictly against coaching for exams which involve rote learning and co.I feel that institutions like IIT are looking for real talent and by coaching, we are ruining the inner talent[ if any] . Hats off for the wonderful post!!

i felt that the situations mentioned in the article are all true.there are many schools those say themselves as international but does not have that capability of maintaining the international feeling.The students of cource have to pay attention orelse the situation is really like "dhobi ka kutta na ghar ka na ghat ka"so i agree with the article u wrote.

it is very informative. it explains the reason why we students lack conceptual and logical reasoning when compared to the foreigners. and we feel the same as you think that the nomenclature cannot decide the type of schooling given in the schools. you said that many thousands of students are getting qualified and coming out as robots. but what suggestion do you give to prevent this? do you think conceptual understanding should be implemented from the school level?

tarun & sitaram said...

The enigma called International schools Or Concept schools is a very interesting topic.This topic can make wonders in reducing all the differinciation in the society.
If we have a school where there are students froms different nationalities we can share the come across different cultures so that the world is not a competative one but a co-operative one.
So ma'am this is tarun[alexander] and sitaram of X posting this comment which we felt would unite the students and there by our nation and nations.It is said that the one who is thaught at the budding stage will remain till the end leaving a time less legacy .

We think that this blog by our principal- Mrs.SEETHA MURTY is really a topic to think over and do something about it.There is a need to deal with such happenings in our own country.We are sure that these wrong mindsets of people are really misleading the whole country.

What we feel is that we are really lucky to have the IBPYPmethodology in our school but we are taking this oppurtinity for granted.There's a lot that we can do if we do not mislead ourselves into our own worlds.

we surely do not want to become unfeeling robos.. and we have acquired the confidence to grow up as a leader even if we donot make up to the illogical indian (especially AP) institutes. people like many of our parents get carried away by the false adjectives used by the many educational centres. these centres make the gullible people believe in the (maybe) false ranks scored by rote learning..... this post really reflects the indian psychology and is directly releated to our academic lives..

this has put some sense into our brains about the nomenclatured schools and we will surely be careful about our future decisions!!

ALITIES.

tarun said...

In andra pradesh for example we have 3 houses where 2 members are IITians the third one automatically wants to study in IIT
This is because since ages the kings the rajas every one had a lot of competetion .Every one wanted to be the best the one of the cleverest people were from krishna dearaya's time .May be the same blood continues till now .Our social teacher seshu lakshmi ma'am told us that her parents never told her or forced her to study.These days many of our parents insist us to study they also plan to send us to some collage where there is a IIT coaching.So if we convey this article to our parents there will think about it .There are rare case's were actually parents understand the value of IIT .I'am proud that my parents have a reason for my IIT .So mam we thank you for conveying this message to every one of us.This tarun[alexander]signing off .
