1st Grade Student With 16 Subjects
I think it is very difficult for a small student of grade 1st, 2nd, and 3rd to read and learn 16 subjects in total. According to the curriculum of our education system, students of the primary schools have to have 16 or more subjects in their first, second and third grade of school which is the biggest burden on their shoulders. Every day they have to study 6 subjects at school and then they must do 6 homework at home too.
They leave home for school around 7:30 AM and return back home on 1:00 pm. immediately after taking lunch they need to lay down over their books and notebooks to do the homework of 6 subjects. The small children like newly born babies looking humbly at their parents or elder brothers and sisters if they can help them in doing their homework. These smallest human being need to work until evening or sometimes until late at night to prepare themselves for teacher's questions tomorrow.
Here might be questions raised up in your mind that why I have written the above story? The answer is concluded in a few sentences:
As per the students' age and physical structure they are not able to pick up such heavy load, they have no time to play, they are badly under pressure and they are easily get suffered from divers health problems.
This is just to share with you if it is the same in your countries?
