Huge billboards of schools and colleges plastered with mugshots of their rank holders is not a rare sight these days. However, one such billboard has left netizens fuming online after it featured kids from nursery to first grade.
A picture of the poster from Hyderabad has taken social media by storm after a user shared it saying: “Nursery toppers…! For what…Who’s drinking milk fast?”
The students were all from Priya Bharati High School, a Telangana government recognised school, according to the banner.
Nursery toppers…! 🤦♂️

The poster drew flak online and netizens argued how toddlers should not be pitted against each other at such a tender age. Most slammed it as the toxic craze ailing the country’s educational system.Here’s how people reacted to it online.
This is pure marketing, they dont care about your kids growth (Their business model is at the cost of childhood being destroyed)

This new trend is terrifying. Stop glorifying and idolizing toppers. It pushes toppers to the unreal fool’s paradise and put undue pressure on others. No relation whatsoever if toppers of these messed up examinations would make a better person or live better lives. https://t.co/m7e5Yzwqb0

In our times it was mentioning class toppers in school magazine(even that was not needed). Taken to this toxic level now. https://t.co/Q6IhMn1AXp
