Plastic hazard

Use of the plastic bags is one of the biggest environmental risks as they are hard and expensive to recycle. Yet, they are part of our life despite their use being banned for several years.
Most plastic bags end up in land­fill sides where they may take hundreds of years in the photo grade. In the meantime, they turn into toxic particles that pollute soil and groundwater. With more trouble, these particles enter the food chain. These plastic bags cannot respond because it pollutes the environment. Scientists have also discovered that many harmful plastic causes diseases like cancer. The government must try to replace plastic bags with eco-friendly content such as paper and jute bags.

All for tuition

Parents are now more worried about their children doing well or bad in exams. Almost all guardians want that their children should always excel others in classrooms and this is where private tuition has come to play even at the primary level of education, with students being coached privately before and after school hours without having the time to play around or even just sit idle.
This has become more so after the introduction of the PEC and JSC exam exams. Children excelling others in classrooms, even at the primary level, have become something for parents to boast of. But the merit list has always been populated by all students but the one who tops and parents should also consider this. Primary education certainly has a role to play in making the nation educated but academic excellence, or the forced academic excellence for that matter, rarely continues throughout student life.
