  2 Akshara Kids not allowed to give exam
Posted by: admin - 04-04-2018, 11:26 AM - Forum: Parenting - No Replies

2 Akshara Kids not allowed to give exam


Medchal District’s Akshara International School has restricted the entry of two students to the school as they had not paid the school fees.


In a similar incident, Spring Fields School in Tolichowki also prevented children from writing the examination for non payment of fees.


Child right activists said that it was the duty of parents to pay the fee on time as when they had enrolled their children private schools, they knew about the high fee structure. But at the same time, paying fee is a contract between the parents and the school and children should not be dragged into this. Also schools should not ask the fee from children or insult them for not paying the fee which would attract Juvenile Justice Act of care and Protection. This would irrevocably harm the child, said Mr Achyuta Rao, a child rights activist.

  Tweenage kids hooked to Vlogging says Lara Prendergast

Tweenage kids hooked to Vlogging says Lara Prendergast


Vlogging can now be a well-paid career.


One in three children between the ages of 11 and 16. have uploaded a video to YouTube.


In a survey last year, 75per cent of the children asked said they wanted to be YouTube stars. The research also revealed that many of the children would rather learn video-editing than history or maths. Unlike the more traditional dream jobs - pop star, doctor, footballer, astronaut - it doesn’t take much effort. All it require is a smart phone and gallons of youthful self-confidence.


There are plenty of people with that who have made millions from their respective channels.


Not every child can be Zoella. In reality, the most they’ll end up with is an embarrassing collection of videos they’ll want to delete later in life. So the real winners, as usual, are the tech companies, who are constantly tweaking their systems to extract the maximum revenue from their audiences while sucking up consumer data.
