How Schooling Has Changed Over the Last 40 Years

During my parents's school days, there were no gadgets and internet. For project work, they had to go to the libraries and use books, encyclopedias and dictionaries and finish their project research there. The teachers were also strict on homework. They would punish students who didn’t finish their homework. Now, we have gadgets and internet to do research for our homework in minutes, but still, some of us can’t finish our homework.
My parents' teachers were very strict, they used to hit the students with anything they were holding if the students were distracted or noisy while the teacher was talking. They would make students sit in the air tip toed if they did not finish their homework, and they would do many other punishments to students if they made a mistake. Now, most of the teachers aren’t really that strict, they try their best to be kind and have motherly love for students.
During recess, my parents would play on playgrounds and they would feel very hot and sweaty just like us but there were no air conditioners in their school. Now, most of the schools have air conditioners. They had prayers in the beginning and end of class every day, while nobody does that anymore now. They were put into groups and they would clean the room if it was their day to clean the room. Most of the schools now have cleaners to clean the whole school.
There are many other things also, that have changed over time like better buildings, better furniture, and better sports facilities. Our generation is so lucky to have plenty of resources to help us in our studies but unfortunately most of us don’t even feel grateful that we have these things. All we want to do is stay at home and play with our iPad or iPhone. I guess all of us should be grateful to be born in this generation. What do you think?
