Title: Education Stress Syndrome
Authors: Chopra, Nidhi
Issue Date: Mar-2010
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: HAS the modern education system led to an increasing dependence on coaching institutes? It seems to be so.

Modern parents are putting their children into coaching classes or tuitions at a very early age. Right from the time of primary schooling these kids start going to tuitions for English, Mathematics and so on. Even in ‘single income’ families nobody sits with these kids. Of course, a housewife has a right on rest and entertainment but the kids are over-burdened by these extra hours of study and are robbed of their rest and entertainment.

Why do we need these coaching institutes? Population, employment, age restrictions etc. are major reasons that force children to become a part of the rat race. There are a few hidden reasons as well. Our children need to get more than 90%. But, they get more than 90% and still don’t get admissions and jobs. The result is depression, stress and suicide. We saw all this in the recently released movie 3 Idiots.
