Students are Hosts, Not Hostages

To complete the syllabus and get the top ranks the teachers and parents now a days, physically and mentally hold the students as hostages in classroom and coaching institutes as if  their future is mortgaged.

The teacher and subject should be planned in such a way that the teacher should be welcomed to the class by their hosts (Students) and not should be held as hostages in the classroom by their teacher (guests).

So now a days the teaching methodology is changing in which the teachers upload the lesson and test on net and students whenever  they are free and interested turn on the laptops ,understand the lesson and complete the assignment,  but a time frame has to be set.

Technology has given us tools to set the students free and study at their own will so it should be welcomed and release the hostages from the classroom.
