Education Disaster

The following happened at a seventh floor restaurant in a shopping mall.

“Our daughter is already in K2. We have to decide which primary school to send her to.”

“There is no need to worry. Primary and secondary schools are free.”

“I don’t want to send our baby to the public schools. It is very difficult to get into the elite schools. She is already studying in an ESF international kindergarten. Let us send her to an ESF international primary school.”

“They are so expensive. How can we afford it? I am just a technician.”

“If we don’t send her to a good primary school, she will not be able to get into a good secondary school. Then she cannot get into university. It is so competitive these days”

“Let us apply to some of the cheaper direct-subsidy schools or private schools. They are less expensive than the international schools. Even if that does not work out, we can still take a chance in the lottery for public schools.”

“I don’t like it. You are gambling on our daughter’s future.”

“But we really cannot afford to send her to international schools.”

“We have to. Otherwise there is no future for our daughter!”

“What do you want me to do? How can we afford it on my salary?”

“If our daughter has no future, we might as well kill her now!”

“You are so unreasonable. How can you kill our daughter!”

“That is easy. I will just throw her down the building.”

“No, you won’t.”

“Yes, I will!!”

“You wouldn’t dare!!”

“No? I will show you!!!”

The mother threw the four year old daughter over the rails on the seventh floor. She then jumped over the rails herself. The daughter was saved by a net that was intended to catch debris. The mother did not survive.
