    well, is it?

    In My personal opinion i am against the idea of tuition for students.However only IF that person revieving tuition is not getting the same amount of teachings in school and has mental health problems than other pupils. I mean, because you have more money doesn't mean you should have a better grade and eventually have a better life, i know this leads onto a much bigger issue but is tuition fair?

    Op is clearly a person that envys another person that is being tutored - by which that particular other person is giving Op a good grade thrashing.

    Well, you just have to try harder then don't you? - if your parents are not made out of money!

    How is it not fair? If you have the money, you can spend it on whatever you want. If you can't afford tuition, tough **** but that is how the world works. Quit the inequality crap and get working.

    I agree. I think it should be illegal to teach if you're not employed by the state. That way, everyone would be better off.

    Most people who get stellar grades don't have extra private tuition. Stop griping and go study.

    The only people who have extra tutoring are those who are finding it hard...

    Why shouldn't they be allowed to pay someone to go over the material with them and test them in their spare time if it meant them getting the C they need, or whatever...? :lolwhut:

    Yes, especially if you have bad teachers and have a limited understaniding of the topic (no point just telling me to do more work if they can't understand any of it in the first place)

    I have nothing against tuition, but my little apothegm has always been, if you're going to do it, do it yourself - then you'll have the satisfaction of knowing you tried your best

    Oh welll....if smart students who can go up for good grades without tutorials are THE BEST !! The smart ones who go for tutz thinking that is going to help them score better and live better are LOOSERS !!

    There are some who really need remedials like the ones flunking 2 and more subjects.

    But tutz are a waste !!

    What about a day when you actually come home after a hectic day at school. School nearly takes up half of your day and you come home looking for relaxation. And then the tornado of tutz strikes...you then gotta get ready for your tutz in a few hours....have you studied for the test the teacher is gonna take ? are you prepared with the lessons previously taught ? how about your competitor at tutz ?? all this stuff will actually start screwing you from home itself. By the time you go to tutz and come back...you are stressed,drenched and superly tired ( not coz of the time-table but coz of the pressure underneath the big head )

    How about a day of school with the same level of pressure..and then you come home..relax...and set aside some study time. This way you can prioritize your work.

    If you are having a bio test 2mrw and u hv a math tution 2day...its NOT gonna help !!

    Tuitions aren't really fair until or unless it comes for the really NEEDY ones or the ones who are less than 40% and need to score above 80s for ... (various reasons )

    (Not sure if you mean university or just privating schooling here.)

    For university: Depends on whether you think university should be a given right or not really, since the tuition fee's will be changing for each university (to an extent). Best won't necessarily charge the most.

    Schooling: Well if parents want to put money towards private schooling let them really. There are people who have lower/middle income who try and put their students in private schooling (Though only a small minority I'd imagine) and some think the teaching and learning is better. It's probably up to person opinion, as with private schooling the teaching sort of has to be better, so if a teacher is incompetent I'm sure they're more likely to be removed whereas I've had several insanely crap teachers who need to be removed from my school, yet still there...
    Though I don't go to a private school, if a parents willing to put the money in then why not. It's not like those from state schools are put at a disadvantage, if you're academically gifted then I'm sure that should still shine through and if you go to a poor school and your grades shine above the right, then universities would see that as well and you'd probably shine out a bit more

    Teachers aren't an issue. The management is 10 times more bothered about the teachers rather than the students because in the end..its the school name at stake.

    It all depends on the mental capabilities that the student wishes to show up...

    All people have been gifted with the same mental strength...!! It is all on the student on how to make use of the brains in-built.

    No tuition isn't fair. However, neither are private schools, neither is the influx of middle class people to the catchment areas of good schools, neither are most variables related to education. At least if you're going to have tuition, make the most of it and work hard.

    No it isn't fair.

    Although how is it fair that you are actually able to get education in the first place when there are people in third world countries who have no such luxury. How is it fair that by world standards you're rich. How is it fair that you will never have to go hungry in your life when there are people in this world who are starving.

    Seriously If you're going to complain about fairness get a little perspective first.

    Personally, I get satisfaction from doing MY best in exams, rather than from doing better than everyone else.
