Shenzhen University sends mail report to cause controversy

Some netizens have reported that in recent days, many students studying in Shenzhen University have received a special courier at home - studentstranscripts. It is understood that, at present, all the students who receive the transcripts are families in Grades 2016 and 2017 of Shenzhen Universitys College of Life and Marine Sciences. The transcripts received are all EMS Express, which contains a letter to parents, transcripts, conversion methods of grades, and the way teachers contact.

Beiqing Daily reporter in Shenzhen University Lizhi Weixin Public Number saw that on October 30, the public number published an article entitled Heavy Weight! Have you sent your transcript to your parents? Did your parents receive it? Article. In the article, a screenshot of the notice A Letter to Parents and Achievement Card was issued to the 2016 and 2017 grades in order to strengthen the schools contact according to the unified requirements of the school.

In addition, we also mentioned that a transcript had been received from a student who lived in Shenzhen Xili. In the message area, many students said they had received the transcript and said that the circle of friends has blown up.

Chen Xi (alias), a 2017 student at the College of Life and Ocean Sciences, told the Beijing Qingdao newspaper that she had received the schools report card from the school a few days ago. It was my mothers letter at that time. She also took a picture of me and said that the school sent the report card to my home.

Ms. Tian, a netizen, also told the Beijing Youth Daily that her sister was studying at Shenzhen University, and she did receive a transcript express from the school. We were all surprised because when I was at school, my family never received my transcript, but now my sisters transcript is mailed home like this.

Most students and parents agree with school practices.

Many Shenzhen University students expressed their opinions after they learned that the school might send their transcripts to their parents unconsciously. Except for a few students who think that the school is not respecting privacy, most of them agree that it is normal for them to send their transcripts home by mail.

Chen Xi is one of the students who agree. Chen Xi told the Beijing Youth Daily that she believed that parents should know their childrens grades and that even if the school did not send them by mail, she would take the initiative to inform parents of their grades. For the schools practice, the 2017 grade Wu classmate also expressed his support. In his opinion, it is more advantageous than disadvantageous for schools to send school transcripts to studentsparents. It will make students have a kind of learning pressure invisibly, and also let parents know their students academic status more clearly.

As a family member, Ms. Tian and her parents also believe that the schools approach is more conducive to parentsunderstanding of their childrens school situation. After all, the university is different from junior and senior high schools. Parents usually look very hard at junior and senior high schools. When the college entrance examination is over, they go to college, without the pressure of entering a higher school, their parents have less control and their children feel able to do so. Play. But in my opinion, university studies are also important and can not be abandoned.

In response, the teacher of Shenzhen University College of Life and Marine Sciences told Beiqing Daily that mailing transcripts is the behavior of the whole school, not that of a certain college. Schools have mailed before, but nothing special will not be mailed, unless students have a red alert, so the school must be explained to the students at home. But now, every year, every year, schools send their transcripts to their parents. The teacher said that there was no problem of payment. The reason why the school increased the cost to do this was to establish better communication between the school and parents, hoping that parents would know the situation of students in school.

Beijing Youth Daily reporter learned that, in fact, many colleges and universities will send studentsparents transcripts or text messages to inform students of their grades. Among them, Sun Yat-sen University, Xian Jiaotong University, Sichuan Conservatory of Music, China University of Mining and Technology (Beijing), Nanchang University, Jiangxi University of Finance and Economics and other universities will send some or all of the studentstranscripts to their parents. East China Jiaotong University has adopted mailing transcripts to parents as a habit for 20 years.

Experts say University behavior is necessary and reasonable.

The issue of Shenzhen University mailing transcripts to parents has aroused heated discussion on the Internet. Some people believe that studentsgrades belong to personal privacy, and schools have no right to do so. However, some netizens believe that parents, as the contributive party, have the right to know their students achievements. In this way, parents can better supervise students learning.

Guo Yuanjie, an associate researcher at the Academy of Chinese Academy of Educational Sciences, believes that it is necessary and reasonable for universities to mail transcripts to parents.

Guo Yuanjie said that the reason why the school sends the report card to parents is that many students feel that they have gone to college and become adults, so they dont tell their parents the results truthfully. This led to serious problems in some studentsgrades. Until the school finally notified the drop-out, parents did not know what their children were doing in school. Parents usually dont know whether children go to class on time or whether there is a family record. In fact, the school made the decision to mail the transcript to parents, I think it must also be the schools decision after weighing the pros and cons. Because schools do not want students to spend time in school. The behavior of a school is a kind of behavior that is responsible for students and parents. In addition, through this way, we can also maintain a certain relationship between schools and parents, which is conducive to the supervision and education of children. As for some netizens, the result is personal privacy, so the school violates the right to privacy. In this regard, Guo Yuanjie believes that these issues do not involve privacy. As soon as studentsgrades come out, students and teachers will know, The so-called privacy is to conceal parents. Source: Beijing Youth Daily editor: Yang Yi _NBJ10647
