Nowadays, many Egyptian families make their children join faculties and schools that they see as the best for them. This is because the majority of them always want what is the best for their children.
This is also what some children don’t understand and think their families are being autocrats. However, their parents and kins want to see their youth lead a better life than the ones they led.
These faculties may be very good but the question is: Are these faculties is the best for their children? Do their children like this field of study or interested in this major specialization? Will they become creative in this specialization and become successful? These significant questions must be considered.
There have been many examples of students who joined faculties only to change them after a year or two or even after they graduate because they believe that they will be successful in a new faculty.
This is why the desire of children should be discovered from the beginning and at an early time so that they join the suitable faculties that they will be successful in and will continue working in this specialization for the rest of their lives.
Part of the responsibility of choosing the right specialization of the study lies in the hands of students themselves.
If you ask any student what faculty he plans to Join he will answer that he will join a certain college and will name it. Then if you ask him again why does he want to join it, the answer will differ.
Some will say that don’t know or give you an indirect answer to the question. This was the case of Mazen, a secondary school student at Modern school.
Mazen has not yet decided what college he would like to Join after he finishes his high school education. After some university students advised him to learn more about the colleges and their sectors, he started to seek the field he would like to study.
Later, he found that he would like to join the Engineering school, but has not decided what specialization and department he would join. He added that he is still thinking about this issue and that he has not yet decided what is the significant field in which he will be spending many years of his life in.
A student goes on a journey of self-discovery before enrolling in university by discovering his inclinations to see how to become an effective and influential member of his society.
Actually, one place that could help a student find the sector he loves and can be creative in is the School and its educational system.
