The expensive private schools have always been good but beyond the financial reach of most. Let’s all hope and pray for Malala’s full recovery. I thought the poem was a very moving tribute!
One thing that became clear is that with almost no actual teaching going on, after all these years of ‘deschooling’, our children are at the same level, if not more advanced than their peers. Education happens – and it happens in a natural way. A college degree is the key to realizing the American dream, well worth the financial sacrifice because it is supposed to open the door to a world of opportunity.

ACE and 34 other higher education associations wrote to the leaders of the House and Senate budget and appropriations committees, asking them to maintain Congress’s historic commitment” to financial aid and research in FY 2018. Sorry to hear that, Tamara. I don’t think it’s limited to the Croatian government though – the lack of teaching kids good ‘thinking skills’ is a worldwide problem. No point in stuffing their heads full of facts if they don’t know how to apply their knowledge. We need innovators in education; people with passion who don’t need rules and guidelines to inspire our youngsters.

Truth be told, I enjoyed all the other reasons listed above as well—except for the research, which involves a lot of statistics and math, subjects I try to avoid like the plague. In 2008, for instance, international test results revealed that Filipinos were behind compared to other countries when we finished dead last in math.
Excellent, excellent and again I say: excellent. As one who homeschooled her children for years and only reluctantly sends them to a charter academy now (mama’s gotta work!), I well know that your assessments here are right on track. And you support your findings beautifully, by the way.

The Seattle Times Education section covers schools at the district, state and federal level. Topics include the University of Washington and other colleges; the Common Core and standardized testing; teacher pay and strikes; charter schools; school discipline; classroom teaching methods; and funding under the McCleary decision. Coverage also includes the Education Lab project. The public or private high school setting is the place most Americans learn how to relate to the opposite sex, and how the dating ritual takes place. If they aren’t dating they are still observing others who are. They are able to view good examples as well as bad examples, and real world parenting can happen. For instance, a high school girl is able to see there is a large pool of the opposite sex, and can begin to see what traits good guys share, and what traits bad guys lack – with some guidance from her parents. But, what a traditional student lives with everyday is only abstract to a homeschooled student. Only having a description of what makes a guy a good dating choice might make it hard for a homeschooled girl to know it when she encounters it in her youth group, job or … Read more

Yes, actually. My twin nephews went to a Waldorf school for a few years. There are pro and cons. I have a lot going on, so maybe you could ask specific questions. Firstly there is the issue of very under-qualified teachers doing their best to cope with a curriculum for which they have had inadequate preparation and for which the resources are also inadequate. All the news about long-term unemployed young people, who are burdened with more than $90,000 of college debt is discouraging some young people from attending college.

While he eats, I look through his books and see what homework he has. I often have to phone a friend to ask, because he forgets so many things. I never tell him off for this because he never does not do it on purpose. It’s because he’s dyslexic. Informative and well done! I learned several things I did not know before and your hub refreshed my memory on a few others. Great Job!
