When the school year is in the final stretch the efforts are concentrated mainly in the exams. For students who took pains, it is time to show that so many sleepless nights served as something, but for those who played down school, the time for the impossible mission arrived.
Why do some students arrive at the final tests without adequate preparation? There will not be a lack of those who blame the teachers, but in the matter there is a cloth to cut.
The difficulties in coverage at all levels are undeniable, especially in the institutions of basic secondary, pre-university and technological, where the fundamental load is assumed by the hired workers.
That some teachers neglect self-preparation, it is also true, as it is, that many do not have enough time left to investigate and enrich the class, especially primary school students who have been deprived in the last two decades of their right hand, the educational assistant, and another weakened link in the educational process chain.
Undoubtedly in a context marked by the unbridled advance of the technologies, the lack of ingenuity and creativity in the higher share of the pedagogues put them at a disadvantage in front of increasingly demanding and critical disciples.
I could list many other causes that cause the deterioration of interest in conscious study, but there is a fundamental factor that we must not lose sight of, the family.
When the children arrive unarmed to a test it is necessary to review in retrospect what we did and what we overlooked.
There are those who left the matter exclusively in the hands of the auxiliary teacher and the professor, while others took the reins in the wrong way, diminishing the initiative of their boys, when they did everything, from homework to practical work.
And on another level are those who could not care less about the school and what was linked to the study, but now impute to everything and everyone, the poor final result of their children.
I think that preparing children and young people is a plural act (I would say that even heroic in these times), hence the success of what we do depends on how we do it.
The key is to participate and this supposes both the teacher and the family: innovate, motivate, know, experiment, teach …
If we devote ourselves passionately to the task despite how many obstacles are presented, we will achieve a better generation of men and women with wisdom and vocation to serve others. There is no better harvest.
