It's the school holidays and SK is made to return to school for one whole week for character building lessons. I'm so pissed!
In case you're wondering what this is about, his teacher suspected he cheated in his art exam. The truth is, he did not cheat at all. I saw him labouring over the piece of artwork every night for 3 weeks. You can read about it here.
The teacher didn't believe him right to the very end. She finally gave him a score of 40 out of 100 marks. Art had always been his strong subject and he could never fail it even with one eye shut. Obviously, the teacher wasn't convinced even after he redid the exam. I wasn't pleased at all but kept my mouth shut because I didn't want to blow it out of proportion.
But to think that he's now being treated like a 'criminal' and sent for reformative training during the school holidays is too much to take. I don't mind that the classes will help build his character but I feel angry that I can't clear his name.
YK, who knows SK's capability and had seen his artwork, kept chiding him, "Whether the teacher believe you or not, you SHOULD NOT have admitted to something you didn't do!"
It's too late to cry over spilt milk. Let's hope something good will come out of the character building lessons. I hope he'll finally learn to fight for his rights and not to succumb to pressure.
