Our children are under enormous pressure to perform in school based on predetermined benchmarks or goals. The comparison of a child with the majority of his or her peers seems a necessary evil in the school system – to determine success or failure. Students are considered successful when their grades and performance are on the same level or above that of their contemporaries. It would be wonderful if there was more wiggle room and children could work at their own pace, some slower and some faster, but in most school settings this is seldom possible. Teachers must give grade students based on majority performance. Those who fall short of these established guidelines are labeled slow learners or learning disabled. Thousands of parents each year are told their child has a learning problem or disability; although, the majority of these children will test normal or above normal on IQ tests.Approach, Education, Learning, Progressive, Training, Tutoring

Education plays a pivotal role in the development of our younger generation to lead a successful life in this world of global competition. There are many dimensions of education in the development of human personality. It gives us professional knowledge. It teaches us human skills. It puts our mind on creative thinking. It builds our confidence and self-esteem. Now the question is: are the private institutions playing their role for the promotion of education?
We can see a mushroom of private schools and colleges in Lahore but the parents and students are still in a state of bewilderment which institution to join for quality education. First of all, the tuition fee and admission charges of leading institutions in private sector are very high. Secondly, there is no standard criteria for getting admission in these renowned institutions. Back door techniques are used to get admission where the merit is lacking for open competition. It is very difficult for a competent student from a middle class family to get admission in leading institutions on merit.
