S.S. Nathan

"Teaching is for learning's sake, not for examinations' sake. But we often find that it is perceived to be the other way about. Teachers train the students with examinations in focus, forgetting that exams are only one of the many experiences that a child comes across in life. I think it is the responsibility of teachers to ensure that their students are taught in much the same way they would like their own children to be taught."
