Abstract

In this post, Debarshi Roy examines the unforgiving and remorseless High School examination system in India which perpetuates a system of high test scores, the glorification of the ‘successful’ over the ‘under-achievers’, and suggests alternative, positive ways forward to remedy the system to create a more inclusive and positive community of educated citizens.
