Sometimes correspondence education is called Correspondence Courses, Extension Courses, Extended Studies, Home Study, Continuing Education, External Studies, Self-Paced Studies, Independent Studies and Distance Learning (See Reference 1). Similarly, distance education is also called Cyber Education, Online Education, Virtual Education, Technology-Supported Education, Hybrid Education and Distributed Learning. Given the plethora of educational delivery modes currently available, students often get confused over the similarities and differences between correspondence education and distance education, further compounded by the fact that there are still other online delivery modes, such as synchronous live chats or hybrid online classes, among others. BlondeNAmbitious- I think there were some good general points, but off the mark on some. I am successful, and I think ‘The Secret’ is great…those that don’t know how to use it (like the poor), will think it is a ‘Pie-in-the-Sky’ miracle, but still fail. One has to understand what the ‘Secret’ actually is, and know how to apply it (i.e. it is not tangible until you actually get it). One needs to read on the law of attraction (also part of ‘The Secret’), to understand how one’s attitute can make the difference in one’s circumstance. Lousy at business, not necessarily…lousy at finances, absolutely! Slave for a paycheck (not really, if you take advantage of paid education, travel, on the job training, etc.).
You may also use this very financial aid appeal letter template to write out your very own application for the financial aid. But, I would strongly recommend the use of a personal touch as language that flows out of heart is very honest and expressive. State in very clear terms what will happen, in terms of your educational prospects, if you don’t receive enough financial aid. So, refer to a financial aid appeal letter sample, take a paper and a pen and then write out our own application.
I am thinking about homeschooling and looking for all sides. You have some valid points even when others disagree. There are pitfalls in regular education that I am fighting. I certainly appreciate your point of view that helps me understand the process better. We can all learn from you. Angel blessed.
Here’s another online resource for you, and btw it’s also one that could help kids to develop a good reading habit. It’s called infloox ( ) and you can use it to research the influential links between people and books, or simply just generate a compatible reading list for yourself after inputting your own favourite authors/books.
My son generally doesn’t like to walk but if you make it fun he loves it. A treasure hunt like the one described above is a good incentive to get him walking. Other things we do include looking for sticks (he love sticks for some reason), running races as we go along or follow the leader. Another idea is to have a sheet of bugs and birds you can spot on your walk. You can design and print off a sheet before your walk and tick off the animals you spot on the way.
In a way this is my main point and it should require little more explanation by now. The sad truth about modern education is that it works to destroy creativity, personality and personal initiative in favor of standardizing people and their minds in order for them to fit better in to a the factories of 200 years ago.
