Filipinos are known to be competitive in the international community. However, our current education system hinders us from becoming even more competitive. is a simple website in image, but powerful when it comes to learning tools. I love how they have a particular tab for pre-K kids which makes finding the games and videos you want much easier. They teach everything from basic colors and shapes to some advanced math and reading. The games are great, but they also offer educational videos, arts and crafts projects, and books. I especially like the books because they have a button to press which reads the book to your toddler who isn’t ready to read to themselves.
My son and I haven’t done a cinema trip yet but we are going to go next week to see Toy Story 3. I think he’s at the age now where he will sit for long enough to be able to watch the movie and I can’t wait! Thank you for being so open and honest with your perspective on Homeschooling through your middle and high school years. It is so important to hear both sides of the issues.

With the internet, universal access to education is possible, but its potential is hindered by increasingly restrictive copyright laws and incompatible technologies. The Open Education program at Creative Commons works to minimize these barriers, supporting the CC mission through education, advocacy and outreach on using the right licenses and open policies to maximize the benefits of open educational resources (OER) and the return on investment in publicly funded education resources.

I love to read my students’ poems, and these interactives and poetry collections provide them inspiration and guidance. I’ve seen sparks of creativity fly for children and teens alike. The collections of poems include classic favorites as well as works by contemporary authors AND kids. And readers have added another dozen of their favorite websites to the readers’ recommendations list at the end of this article. The long answer is that I plan on supplementing their public education through learning at home and through field trips. Also, because my husband is a commercial airline pilot we have free travel benefits and I plan on my children learning while extensively traveling. I feel that parents can be powerful educators. I just do not plan to limit my children to my teaching at home.
Kate, Thank you so much for the compliments, they mean a lot to me. Having worked with children for so long, you must already have a great deal of knowledge. You sound like you are on your way to one day being a great parent. I think more parents (or future parents) should have access to this kind of information since raising great kids is the most noble … Read more
Obtaining a quality education is the foundation to improving people’s lives and sustainable development. Major progress has been made towards increasing access to education at all levels and increasing enrolment rates in schools particularly for women and girls. Basic literacy skills have improved tremendously, yet bolder efforts are needed to make even greater strides for achieving universal education goals. For example, the world has achieved equality in primary education between girls and boys, but few countries have achieved that target at all levels of education. There is a Waldorf school in the area and I’m considering asking for a tour to see it in action, and ask a few questions. I know from working in education that it’s one thing to espouse a certain school philosophy, and sometimes quite different seeing it in action and evaluating the benefits. Websites easily make schools sound very ideal and yet it’s hard to find schools that match exactly their ideals.
My husband has read to him every night since he was very, very little, when he was not yet talking, and hardly able to sit up! We had no idea that he was dyslexic at this time. I have a video of him … Read more
High School education is perfect in so many areas that in order to truly comprehend its greatness, one must understand each of the aspects that make it so fantastic. From the grading system to teacher salary and student eagerness to learn, there are a wide range of qualities that make the high school education system the well-oiled-machine that it is. Great analysis, Distant Mind. Our current educational system tends toward teaching to pass standardized tests and not true learning. We must encourage our young people to analyze facts and be creative. Simple memorization will not cut it in our time nor should it.
Additionally, I’d like to point out that I’m not saying we should completely throughout Biology, Physics or Math, but we should try to dig ourselves out of the unnecessary details and try to see and understand the big picture. Let’s put the emphasis on the really fascinating stuff like the beauty, complexity and diversity of life instead of knowing each and every chemical reaction that is part of the Krebs cycle for Biology. Let’s put the emphasis of Physics on the miseries of the universe and the mindbogglingly paradoxes of the quantum world instead of solving interchangeable … Read more
Studies have shown that people with similar educatonal and socioeconomic backgrounds have a commonality regarding dating and marriage. They tend to like and appreciate the same things. This reasoning explains why college educated, professional women are better off dating men from a similar background and/or better. It is totally unwise for a college educated, professional woman to date a blue collar man and/or a man who does not have the same level of education that she has.

As long as you follow the curricula and instructions and you are on time in submitting requirements, you will be fine. My friend was instrumental in organizing the charity, Friends of Tembaletu , joining with another charity, setting up a school near Cape Town, South Africa, to help to educate children with severe physical and intellectual disabilities – children who might otherwise have no education at all, as some of them are considered as outcasts by their family or have no family looking after them, and others who come from families too poor to send them to school and all of whom, sadly, were not provided for by the state. I have seen films of what they have been achieving to help these children, and it is heart-warming. The children, some of whom couldn’t even talk when they started school, are given one-to-one teaching, and, with appropriate play equipment and attention, learn to do things their families never thought possible.

Social interaction totally depends on the family. I know families that keep to themselves 100%. We were involved in many extra curricular activities, including soccer, karate, gymnastics and dance, as well as youth group. We took outside classes, as well, in art, basket weaving, and participated in 4-H, so I think it is really up to the parents to make sure there are opportunities for their kids to interact with others.… Read more
