During the time that my children attended a Waldorf School I was amazed at the positive influence it had on our family. Although they attend school during the day, they carry home with them a peaceful yet enthusiastic sense of the world and this is engaging and contagious. I feel that all families could benefit from this educational method, even without having a child attend a Waldorf School, so I have made a list of suggestions. Turns out, we’re not alone. In recent years demand for language immersion programs in this country has increased dramatically. Looking specifically at Mandarin, we learn that the first immersion school in the U.S. opened in San Francisco in 1981, but it wasn’t for another 10 years that the second program appeared (just across the bay, in Emeryville, Calif.). After that, a few more schools opened up here and there, but it wasn’t until 2007 that the frenzy began. As of 2013, there were 147 Mandarin immersion programs across the country.
This flouts every principle of good education, but yet there is wide-spread support from industries for such English education, with many industry barons either opening English schools themselves or funding such schools. Few industrialists however spend money in setting up Hindi schools or schools in other Indian languages.

Poor people believe money doesn’t matter. Rich people value money and know it matters. I’m not saying it is the end-all, be-all, but money is a beautiful tool. When you have it you can use it in countless ways: to help others, travel, or take care of your parents. Money allows for the freedom to do the things that you want to do. I am not saying that money creates happiness, but a lack of money is a passport to misery. I say solve the money problem and then solve the higher problems afterward.
We must not forget that modern-day schools have been set up with the sole purpose of providing cannon-fodder to industries. Two-thirds of college students in the US borrow to pay for college, and their average debt is twice what it was ten years ago when only about 60% of students had a loan.
Disease: in the tropics, particularly in the African continent, the menace of tsetse fly which spreads trypnosomiasis among cattle and sleeping sickness among human beings is a major physical factor influencing population distribution. People tend to move away from places with a high prevalence of disease.
