Should parents accept the school placement of their children despite concerns about the school?
Most parents do not have a choice but to accept. Personally, I would seek a replacement/transfer with all my will.
Yes. The child should be prepared to study and work hard, regardless of the school in which he/she was placed.
Yes, they should. Unless they have a medical reason or something like that, they should take what they got.
Yes, parents should. All schools have the same curriculum, etc. Build the environment and your child will flourish.
It's hard to send your child to a school that he/she passed for that is geographically out of the way.
In a democracy, parents should have a right to choose or to question anything they are concerned about.
I'd be concerned too, but the number of spaces at the schools that are not in volatile areas are limited. What can one do?
If my child passes for a school I'm not comfortable with, I'm not sending him/her there.
Yes, they should. In fact, they should all go to the school that's nearest to them.
Students are receiving placement based on performance. So if they want to go to top school, study harder.
GSAT is flawed and not all students can survive at certain schools. That's reality!
They worked for which school they got placed, but I don't wrong the parents to want to change, if it is a volatile area or school.
The school the child attends doesn't affect his/her learning ability and should not.
