Remember pre-school days, when our biggest achievement would be to not cry in the middle of the day to go home?
Well, sadly things are very different for pre-schoolers these days, they're being trained to enter the rat-race from as soon as nursery.
According to a viral tweet, Priya Bharti High School-- a school in Hyderabad has put up a billboard of toppers in nursery, LKG and UKG.
Nursery toppers...! 🤦♂️— Krrissh Yadhu (@KrrisshYadhu) September 27, 2019

I mean look at these naive faces, do you really think these toddlers care or even know how to SPELL 'toppers'? Like did they 'top' because they recited 'A-B-C-D' quicker than their other classmates or did they manage to colour in-between the lines?
Netizens were infuriated by the sight of this tweet, so much so that they started blaming the education system for this toxicity.

Mockery of the education system— Soumya (@Soumya51747008) September 29, 2019
Maybe there's a nursery toddler who's singing "Give Me Some Sunshine" in a corner with a ukulele (since a guitar is too big for the poor child).
Just reducing the little Children to Rats. Preparing for the race where they will fail miserably in life. Taking away their childhood by such displays. It affects the psyche of parents which will be passed on to kids.— BornPatriot (@IamBornPatriot) September 28, 2019

These schools should be banned. Just imagine the pressure on children who couldn't make it here and their parents who take this as a matter of pride. These are not teachers but killers of childhood.— Dhiraj SIngla (@DhirajSIngla15) September 29, 2019
What even is this bullshit? Like I think it's safe to say that we graduated pre-school during sane times.
Hey, pre-school! Leave those kids alone.
