What a name

Postby toddles » Wed Feb 01, 2012 4:59 pm

Saw this on the market place section "Achievers Clique Education ". It's a tuition centre. unabashedly proclaiming exactly who it's meant for, and what it's supposed to be.

What a terribly elitist sounding name! Totally signals the sad state of our nation's education / tuition situation.

why should it be reflective of the nation's education / tuition situation ?

it is more reflective of the business owner's mindset than anyone else.

a swallow does not a summer make ......

just don't be persuaded by such named tuition agency and they will close in no time or change name in no time

LOL. This is hilarious. Imagine how shameful they would be when someone who tuitions there fails in his/her exams

saw this advert by a particular tuition center..

free iPad for the top student..

Guess those doing very well in studies and don't need tuition might be very tempted to join in just to win the ipad. This will draw many good grade students, and indirectly, they will then "produce" many top students..

totally defeats the purpose of tuition.. Tuition is supposed to value add, but now is like just a money making mechanism..

If they are truly wants to add value, they should tweak the reward to the best progress instead of absolute best scores..
