KPK 11th Class English Chapter 10 The Scholarship Jacket Short Questions Answers
The tradition that the small Texas school followed was that a student who maintained the highest grades for eight years was awarded scholarship jacket. It was a beautiful gold and green jacket. It bore a big gold S on the left front and the student’s name was written in golden letters on the pocket.
Marta expected that she would win the scholarship jacket that year because she had been a straight A student since the first grade. Moreover, her sister Rosie had won the same scholarship jacket a few years ago which was an incentive for her.
Marta couldn’t take part is sports at school because her father was a farm labourer. It was very difficult for him to earn enough money to feed eight children, Being poor, Marta could not pay expenses incurred on sports as registration fees, uniform costs and trips out of town.
Mr. Schmidt, the history teacher and Mr. Boone, the Math teacher were angrily arguing about giving Marta the scholarship jacket. The former was in favour of giving the scholarship jacket to Marta while the latter was against it. The latter favoured Joanne whose father was not only a member of the Board but also owned the only store in the town.
Mr. Schmidt who was the history teacher refused to lie or falsify Marta’s academic records. He refused to do saying that Marta had a straight A plus average and could not be compared to anyone else’s.
In the previous years, the scholarship jacket was awarded free of cost to the student who had maintained the highest grades for eight years. The change in the policy regarding the award of the scholarship jacket was that it was to be awarded not free but at the payment of fifteen dollars by the winner. It was an unjust policy. It was meant for obliging an influential student while depriving a deserving one of her due right.
When Marta informed her grandfather of the new policy of the school and asked for fifteen dollars, he refused to pay for the scholarship jacket. He told Marta that if she paid for the scholarship jacket, it would not be a scholarship jacket but a purchased one. He directed her to tell her principal that she would not pay the fifteen dollars for it.
When Marts told the principal that her grandfather had refused to pay fifteen dollars for the jacket she had earned through her own efforts, he realized his guilt. He changed his mind and told Marta that she would receive the scholarship jacket free of cost. He added that he would bring a change in the policy this years regarding the scholarship jacket.
Marta is a hardworking, disciplined and police student. She is one of the top-students of the school. It is her keen desire to win the scholarship jacket. She has great regard for her teachers. She respects even that teacher who is not in favour of giving her the scholarship jacket.
One of the two teacher called Mr. Schmidt was a man of principles. He wanted that those students should receive the scholarship jackets who deserves them. As against that Mr. Boone had no principles. He was in favour of giving the scholarship jacket to those who were influential and rich.
I think the principle of the school is a reasonable person. It is the decision of the Board that the student, who wins the scholarship jacket, should pay 15 dollars for it. If he is unable to pay the required amount, the jacket will be given to the runner up. When the principal comes to know that the winner is a poor girl who cannot pay for the jacket, he makes an exemption in her case.
Marta’s grandfather is a farm labourer. He is a hardworking man. He is a man of principles and refuses to accept a scholarship jacket for his grandfather for payment of fifteen dollars. He has a strong power of making decisions.
Mr. Schmidt, the history teacher, is a noble character. He shows his greatness in refusing to deprive an intelligent student like Marta of her right. I consider the character of Mr. Boone, the Math teacher, an ignoble one because he shows great meanness by trying to deprive a poor intelligent student of her right. He is in favour of giving the scholarship jacket to the daughter of a person who is a member of the Board as well as the owner of the only shop in the town.
The motive behind changing the policy this year was to give the scholarship jacket to a favourite student of the policy makers. Actually, the winner of the scholarship jacket was Marta who was the daughter of a poor farmer. But the members of the Board but also owned the only store I the town.
