Rewarding children for passing exams
Is it right for parents to offer rewards to their children to pass exams?
Is it right for parents to offer rewards to their children to pass exams? Nihal is asking this after a survey of 2000 parents by financial services provider, One Family, suggests that nearly eight in ten reward their children for achieving good grades. Then BBC Asian Network presenter Mobeen Azhar talks to us about his new documentary ‘'A Black And White Killing: The Case That Shook America'. It explores a murder that took place in Portland, Oregon of a young black man who was killed by a member of white supremacist gang, European Kindred. After that Nihal hears from Emily Lim from the National Theatre, and Mamataj, about their involvement in a programme called Public Acts, which aims to encourage people from different communities to perform Shakespeare. Plus, we’ll be looking at the Hindu festival of Janmashtami, Lord Krishna’s birthday. We’ll hear from volunteers at the Bhaktivedanta Manor Hare Krishna Temple in Watford, who are expecting to welcome 70,000 devotees.
