Ban Practical Files.

This petition had 134 supporters

Practical Files are hectic for children to do. Speaking from experience, children learn absolutely nothing from it. They just blindly copy whats written without giving a second thought. When you ask the teachers why and how practical files are useful they have the cliche "if you write, you remember better" answer. Which is most definitely false. It just puts pressure on children over the stress of getting perfect scores in exams and going to coaching classes.

The material in the practical files is judged on the basis of your handwriting which is ridiculous. You can't judge a persons merit by looking at their handwriting. It is just a ton of work which is being put on children which has no use or any learning value.

Our education system needs change and this is a small step in that direction. We can't just keep creating individuals who do things without thinking. In this age of technology we need innovative and creative people who are not afraid of doing something out of the ordinary and not just following orders.
