Are students not relying too much on private tuitions?
Many parents believe that teachers at school do not do enough and to make sure that their children pass with flying colours, they are 'forced' into going for private tutoring for all if not many subjects that they are studying.
Do you not think that private tuitions is getting out of control in Mauritius?
At school most of the teachers do not give the best of themselves.
the fact is that
EVERY teacher give tuitions
they want to have a side income
they have too many students too keep track of
they do not make the effort to simplify things
many students do not understand
I did hear that the teachers that offer private tuition also get paid loads more than what their teachers salary pays so maybe that has something to do with it.
