Nowadays, one of the most challenging problems of education is that young people hold negative attitudes towards learning. Due to the detrimental effects on the quality of public education such as decreasing proportion of students entering schools of higher grade and even imposing adverse effects on young people’s personal development, it is, therefore, of great necessity to explore feasible solutions.
Few people can deny that young people are confonted with fierce competition for limited education resources, the opportunities to enter into a notable university, for instance.This
everyvery desire stimulates them to try a variety ofvarious means to gain the upper hand over others, which, unfortunately, renders them stressful and anxious. Consequently, a sense of fear and resistance towards school and learning may be accumulated gradually, driving students out of their classrooms.
Teachers’ and parents’ high expectations of young people are found to be another major contributor to this situation. Unachievable targets set by teachers or parents to encourage young people to work hard,
whichmay just be the opposite to what they wish. No matter how tremendous efforts they made, it is still impossible to achieve such goals for students who are over-expected.In the end, a sense of frustration and self-denial make them reluctant to enter their school.
Apart from the above-mentioned factors, over-exposure to computer games or online chat may account for this phenomenon. An
experimentsurvey carried out by Japanese Central Agency explored students’attitudes towards learning in school in relation to computer games and online chat, and revealed that students who are indulged in morden technology were generally unwilling to have regular schooling.
It was observed that students who are well-versed with computer games, online chat and other such modern technologies, were generally unwilling to have regular schooling.
Taking the above reasons into consideration, our efforts should be directed towards practical measures which are supposed
to be takento improve young people’s attitude towards schooling. For one thing, it is imperative for authorities to draw up and put forward corresponding rules in an attempt to lighten the burden sof students. For another, teaching methods should be enhanced and enriched to educate young people through entertainment, thereby make learning more attractive.
There is little room for doubt thatUndoubtedly, the above-mentioned measures will partially help to solve the thorny problem. With thesome help, the following decades will witness positive attitude of young people towards school learning.
