“In your country, the youth have been idiot-shamed simply because they were deemed to have failed certain examinations.

Isn’t examination a test of the competence of the teacher than that of the student in sane climes? Especially in a country where failure is a culture.”

In her opinion, the singer questioned the current educational system.

Simi said people were raised with different strengths but were made to believe only certain talents or career paths can bring success.

She wrote, “I feel like the current method of education is faulty. Ppl have different strengths – but we were raised to believe only certain talents or career paths can bring you success. So we see a lot of potential and ideas dying cos they were born to the right ppl in the wrong climate.

“So the problem is not just the incompetence of the teachers – it’s sometimes the misplacement of priorities. The inadequacy of the educational system to cater to the diversity of the human mind.”
