I just question how true are the so called "claim of deep feeling"..

Just look at the statistics.. what are the % of schools with > 0 takeup rate for P2A (alumni)? Doesn't look like a significant majority.. Hence, statistic tells us that MOST parents do NOT really have "deep feelings" for their alma mater such that they want to send their kids there bcoz of the lone reason of they want to "pass on the experience". just Count the zeros and ones.. They made up a significant number by themselves..

What the alumni parents are saying differs from what statistics imply.. hence, not convincing.

But well, they can say what they like to make it sound better.. "deep feelings, emotional attachment".. :evil:


I do have deep feelings for my primary school. But I did not (& could not) enroll my 2 boys in my alma matar coz my primary school was, and still is, an all-girls school..

Likewise, for parents who cannot enroll their daughters in all-boys primary schools. This could be one of the reasons why parents do not enrol their kids in their alma mater. .

I believe these parents (NOT all, though) do have some feelings for their alma mater, but they 生不由己 。。 :sad:

Personally, it depends on the kid, if you kid doesn't want to study, no matter which school he goes to, he will not enjoy it and will not do as well as you expect him to do.
