I'm very sure the parents/tutors helping happens. I remember DD told me that a few of her classmates hand-in perfect work. No ned for 2nd or 3rd draft. "Unfortunately" I always asked my dd to do the assignment on her own, and if she had to do a 2nd or 3rd draft, so be it. At least she is learning, the dos and donts.
Not fair leh, all these assignments are graded. But what to do, I O Sim. Must fall then she can learn how to stand, i cant hold her hand forever!
My philosophy is the same as yours. Let them do it on their own and take ownership of their projects and homework. GEP is a learning process and the skills they take away from doing projects on their own will serve them well in future.
Definitely jtoh. My philosophy is, even if they dont score an A (because all others kids' work were really perfect), i'm happy as the work my kid hand in is truely her work. She learnt a lot. This will definitely help in her secondary & JC. My dd has no problem writing a long report on her own (20 to 40 pages) with contents, titles, subtitles, references, etc. She will check for spelling and grammar mistakes and presentation of the report. (hahaha.... she doesnt want to do 2nd and 3rd draft mah)
