what are the reasons behind a student skip classes and do not care for study? usually, students skip classes or don’t pay attention in a class for two reason – 1) they lack prerequisites, 2) lectures are not interesting enough or teacher don’t know how to teach well. lacking prerequisites and letting students join to universities that’s another problem to discuss but today we don’t want to focus on that. let’s talk about bad teaching. those lecturers who teach/lecture well, I’ve seen student’s don’t skip those class. fact is if you’re a good teacher you have to have the power of having a strong control on your class, a creation of self-driven spirit in your student’s mind to learn and continuous study on how to teach better. these days huge people are joining at universities who are unqualified and they can’t teach better. so how they survive when they need to take classes? they survive by torturing students and making rules. unqualified people suffer from inferiority complex and they make rules to control people. intolerable pressure and torture turn students to a depressive and suicidal mental state what I want to discuss here.
[to be clear I’m not saying skipping classes is a good thing. staff at
as our economy is a very poor one, here only physical health matters. no one cares about mental health. two meals in a day, some clothes to wear and a place to sleep is a standard for a student or anyone else. mental health doesn’t matter in our society. but in reality, it matters into and it’s quite important. at a university, a student may face lots of new things- coping a new place, financial support to manage livings, classes, exams, new relations, unseen openness in surroundings and incapable of thinking from a wide angle etc. lacking prerequisites, getting admitted to the wrong subject, ‘family crisis’ or problems in the community, study pressure, bad teaching, torture from university people or other hundreds reason available – can turn anyone down to mental instability and push one to a suicidal state. a faulty system where most of the things are wrongly established may turn anyone into a mental health patient anytime. you face a problem, try to fix it, couldn’t find a solution, no one to help, loneliness and depression embrace you. mental health is an issue which is being ignored at public universities since long. is there any solution for these type of problem, any counseling or asking? no, we have none. but institutions must have counseling departments to handle mentally broken or depressed people. now if someone dies for depression or mental torture, who should be responsible? the individual or the system where he belongs? this question I wish to ask seriously to every one of you. are we saying that someone being depressed for a problematic system is his/her own problem? so he/she commit suicide, die and we have nothing to do!
we go to university, join classes and exams and end up being a graduate. thousands of students come to a university if someone dies who cares. and students may die being a mental health patient. universities itself a torture cell and many are dying out every day. no one to stop this, no one.
but I wish to point something different, something which has been stated by the student of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibar Rahman University who committed suicide recently. in a university many type students come to learn and all are not same. we see some who owns a
