Register to read the introduction… The classroom was teacher-dominated and I feel that my potentiality and creativity has been suppressed to a large degree. Mr. Dhoj, my 9th grade math instructor, asked me if I had done my homework and as usual I hadn’t. I can still recall the experience when Mr. Dhoj’s huge hands slammed on my pathetic 15 year old back. He was an incredibly strong man. You would not want to mess around with a guy like Mr. Dhoj. But this was not the first time that it happened and I was not the only one who went through it.

Well, I thought it was normal until I started taking classes here. I observed jaw-dropping reactions when I talked about it with my class mates. They’ve never been through all of that. Students here happen to be more creative, outgoing and have superior qualities and abilities. The proper delivery of education has caused positive effects and developed great educational ethics among the students. hahahagBeing around a teacher dominated educational system all my life; I had lost hope over education.
