Ulu Tiram, Malaysia
Following the ministry designed curriculum content and syllabus is made extremely strict for teachers, where teachers are expected to cover a wide range of curated contents in the syllabus before a designated deadline. This leaves very little space for teachers to cater to the curious nature of learners especially when students' questions deviates from a pre-determined lesson outcome for that day. This matters a lot to me because, as learning is a never ending process, students curiosity will not end at the point where a content is taught and assessed in the examination. I want my students to constantly be curious and ask even more questions, even beyond what I teach. Being told to stop just because I have precious lesson time to cover the curriculum content will snuff out the curious nature of learners, and I believe this one day will ruin what my students perceive what learning is.
