Why should the current education system give more focus to sports
There are certain question to the system which always remain unanswerable, one such question is when the last time our education system was updated. Normally we see people with the mindset that education can alone help you achieve success in world, it will help you attain a stable and prosperous career.
However that is true but only education provide you success is never true. There are other aspects apart from education which helps in the overall growth of an individual. One such thing is sports. We see less emphasis of sports in our education system and that is a reason we see many kids having difficulty when they mature to adjust in this world.
Why sports is necessary in life and in school?
If we remember our childhood always the one period or class we used to cherish is the sports class. This was the time when we can mingle with our friends and do some physical exercise apart from the mental exercise we do every day in school. This was a great team building exercise as you would play in a team and learn how to win. This competitive spirit along with team membership is what every corporate HR is looking out in you.
According to survey the best team player in the world are sportsman. It is no surprise we see sportsman being owner of such wonderful business. This is a quality you will not learn while sitting and studying in class. Moreover if you start becoming proficient in one sport you can represent you school, state and eventually your country in near future. This will give you a wide audience and acceptance and this thing should be accepted by management at school. The talent of student should not be limited to studies only and they should be focused to sport as well.
Already we see many football clubs accepting young kids as students and preparing them for future. Lionel Messi is one such example which is outshining in the football world. You and school fraternity should understand that sports should get a focus in this era where physical activity of kids is already reduced to zero percentage. Obesity and other diseases which kids are getting is because of lack of physical activity and what better way to remove it by accepting sports with more weightage in our education system.
