It was a tiring evening. I was struggling to get some words. Almost 4:00 pm in the evening and its School closing time ya know!
Think Think Think… Schools!! What just flashed my mind?! It’s those froggies I learnt in Schools.
Twenty froggies went to school
Down beside a rushy pool;
Twenty little coats of green,
Twenty vests all white and clean.
“We must be on time,’ said they,
“First we study, then we play;
That is how we keep the rule,
When we froggies go to school”.
That’s impressive! How way back in 19th century Schools were described in terms of discipline, uniforms, studies, play and rules.
Most of us did enjoy the poem but never had a thought that managing the organizations were given importance from a centuries ago, right?!
Well it did have importance from a long time back. We realized!
Although Administration, Management and Organizing is been old words in the dictionary of schools. Simplifying them has always been the Anthem of Administration.
Managing a school is a vast task to be broken into small or medium activities to accomplish an organized administration.
Management itself can be split into multiple groups performing assigned activity. However, communication happens to be the initial and important base of all the activities.
Lack of communication spoils the entire show. It’s good that schools keep all information shared among the management; transparent and has clear visibility to all the managing groups in the school.
These groups in school include Clerk activities i.e. they do Fee collection. In real time there might be multiple cashiers making fee collection. It’s important that all the cashiers are aware of the payments made by student and due amounts. It’s merely difficult to share the ledgers among cashiers to follow up or make entries of the payments and it’s unsafe too.
How do we make communication smooth and easier must be the at most concern of school.
Similar is the teacher’s Report Card activities. Noting the marks and exchanging the marks with the respective class teachers or collecting the marks from the respective teachers happens to be the crucial task. A pile of papers that gets mixed up in the small lockers, lost in the whole process is maddening.
Storing the academic data in one organized place seems to be a good idea every school must adopt.
Yalla! Yeah! The students, their transportation must be taken care of. Schools transport management team is another group in trouble. Creating the routes and assigning the students from one side, my! My! He’s quitting, she’s changing the routes on the other side. Messy route scheduled to verify the arrival and departure of students.
How can these confusions be changed would be another tick tock running in the mind.
Then there comes the real tick tock the Attendance. We are bored of age old attendance methods. Actually, Yes! Teachers calling out almost 60 students name in every class, once in every 45 minutes throughout the day. Gawd! Same with the students same old song ‘YES, maaaam’ and ‘Present, maaam’. Isn’t your mouth paining? It really did for me.
It’s like come on! Grow up schools. There are whole lots of fun ways we students can show our presence in the campus. Make us cool they say.
Though Administration existed from ages, implementing the age old methods seem like a bad idea. It’s boring and getting complex to be honest. Upgrade is required as year passes. You see the centuries have passed, still into froggies way? Yeah that’s where it began but we got to modernize the froggies methods to 21st century climate.
What’s new in 21st century? How do we simplify schools? These are the thoughts that schools must take seriously. May it be with respect to administration, education or their organizations growth?
Not much to research what’s hot in 21st century. It’s pretty easy. We land in the planet of technology, computers and internet. This will be the quick fix for the schools to execute an excellent Administration.
