Education Pioneers

Education serves as a driver for development and the elimination of extreme poverty. Education is transformational for individuals and societies-it creates pathways to better health, economic growth, a sustainable environment, and peaceful, democratic societies. A person’s earnings increase by 10 percent with each year of school they complete. Women with higher levels of education have healthier children.

Is Poor Parenting The Reason Children Don’t Value Education?

We have been home schooling, or home-educating as it known in the UK, for eight years. It’s our chosen way of life. However, in the beginning we were filled with anxiety about how it was going to work for our children and us, as parents. Our son, Alexander was six when we decided to take him out of school, and the one piece of advice that was like gold to us was, ‘Don’t do school.’ In other words, don’t try to turn home into school.

These modification certainly can reduce the rate of unemployment in Pakistan.

I continued to read to her, and bought her a read-along Leapfrog. We turned reading into an entertainment rather than a learning experience. Then one day we were in Borders and she spotted some books related to TV shows and enthusiastically seized a pile of Bratz books. Way too old for her as she was only six at the time. She asked me to read them to her. I glanced at them and they were pretty awful, it has to be said. So I told her, no, but I would buy one or two for her if she wanted. So I did and, because I refused to read them to her, she taught herself to read in about two weeks. I have never taught her spelling, grammar or punctuation yet, at 10 years old, she writes stories, plays, scripts and even ‘books’. Her level of English language is amazing and she has easily outstripped her brother.

I’ve been both a public school teacher as well as a homeschooling mom. I have to admit, at this point, I’ve homeschooled longer than I’ve taught in public school. I love them both though! On this page, I’ll share with you some of my experiences and views on education, along with some of my favorite quotes on education. Perhaps the most important piece of information on this page is that kids learn best when learning is combined with movement. I am an elementary teacher. There are some children that absolutely would benefit from not being in the classroom. Ideally, a parent should choose for each child if they would benefit from public, private, or home school education. Not all children are the same.
