There are many assumptions about homeless people. Perhaps the most common is that all of them are too lazy to work. Having been there myself and having worked with many others in the same situation, I have to say that for the vast majority of homeless people, the assumption that they are lazy is dead wrong. I’m sorry your life has not gone the way you wished it had, but everyone has regrets. Public education does not make a person immune to poor life decisions, or there would be no such thing as mid-life crisis. And public school doesn’t gurantee success in a college setting. Everyone has different learning styles and only a small percentage of students actually learn well with standard teaching practices. I imagine your parents made a lot of sacrifices to give you the education you had, believing it to be the best option. I wonder if your mom didn’t tailor your learning to suit your learning style, which is why you noticed such a difference when you entered a traditional classroom setting. I’m sure if you chose to focus on the benefits of your home education, you would find many things you hadn’t considered before.

De Mille suggests that there are three types of schooling: public school, professional education and leadership education. The Thomas Jefferson method claims to be a system that trains people for leadership roles. Nash, Dave and Yig – thanks for stopping by and commenting. Yig – no problem at all. There exist a notion among public that call center professionals get stuck in their job profiles and don’t get to higher levels. But there is no dispute that call centers pay well.
Race and ethnicity: when a particular racial or ethnic group predominates over the other, the lesser group tends to suffer more and may have a lower life expectancy because of limited opportunities. We always go to Italy, and because it’s too hot to go in the afternoons we sat and wrote diaries together. We have 6 of them in total. Here’s an example of one of his early ones.

The standard of educational system can simply be seen as a systematic and generally accepted level of teaching and learning in the educational institution geared towards improving knowledge and developing skills. According to Plato, such a system … must be one that can be shown to produce the highest possible perfection and excellence of the soul (laws 788 of-10). Excellent hub. I have four children in grade school now. Fortunately, my oldest is able to attend SCF Collegiate School, she started last year for sixth grade. It’s based on a European learning style. This will be her second year in it and we couldn’t be happier.
Tussin, I’m really glad you brought up statistics because it is, in one sense, at the heart of this disagreement. It is true that a marriage or relationship is statistically more likely to succeed if the couple have certain values or traits in common.
I have a great musician friend who is also a teacher who at the beginning of an academic year lets the youngsters loose in a room with a bunch of robust instruments and tells them to get on with it! No guidance, no rules, no expectations, just the awakening of … Read more
The LGBTQ+ Identity: A Toolkit for Educators Collection offers a series of digital media resources to help administrators, guidance counselors, and educators understand and effectively address the complex and difficult issues faced by LGBTQ students.

And they fit all of that on one web page per country – amazing!
Your son is very lucky to have such supportive parents that care about him. My mom read to me all the time and I was able to read on my own by time I started kindergarten. A college friend is dyslexic and he’s now a CPA. All things are possible with a terrific support system. Great lens!
The advantages can be manifold and not always obvious to the casual observer, but reports by organizations such as the US College Board show the contribution that a college education can make to the well being of both individuals and society … Read more

These free reading apps for kids make it a joy to get your children engaged in reading. I see how their captivating illustrations, graphics, and games draw beginning readers into a story. Children interact with letters, words, and illustrations in ways that aren’t possible with print on paper. Some of the apps include read-along stories, which are a fantastic tool to help kids develop fluency. As you can see, our educational system in the US is now sitting on the cusp of major changes that will seriously effect learning environments, cause job loss and force parents into situations that will require them to spend more money and/or time to see to it that their children become educated.
So let’s start by facing a truth that we are all aware of on some level, but usually try no to face – our educational system is archaic. It emerged in the time of the Industrial Revolution and it is designed to cater to that time of history and not current social reality. Education is still trying to grind children down to the size that would fit the needs of the industrial revolution. We can see this in the way we assign importance … Read more
The constraint of distance is usually solved by the simple solution of dormitories, but the hurdle of financial assistance is another story. Of late, especially after the commencement of this century, good quality higher education can be gained by people at an enormous value of consideration. In an attempt to provide people with costly but higher and specialized education, society and governments have made some effective provisions such as student loans, educational loans and scholarships. Financial aid is one such provision that is provided by the Universities as well as governments to aspiring students. An important step that comes into the picture is a financial aid appeal letter. As you can probably tell by the quotes above, I’m not the kind of teacher or homeschooling parent who requires that kids sit behind a desk doing workbooks most of the day. Yes, we do do some paper and pencil activities, such as writing and math (yet even when doing math we like to use manipulatives when we’re first learning a new concept), but we also do a lot of hands-on activities which truly engage and excite us. Current research shows that the brain actually learns information better when physical activity is … Read more
Inclusive education is about the integration approach of the disabled learners in schools. It is under this inclusion model that learners with special needs spend most or all of their time with non-disabled learners. While inclusive education has its benefits, there are enormous challenges hindering its effective implementation especially in developing countries. This article briefly examines the following: Inadequate Educational Facilities, Poor Teacher Training, Poor policy implementation. This is where the education should be given importance. As education is geared towards individual development, such development should eventually transform into social development. Still, there are others that praise it as a viable program that can prepare students for the transition toward general education. The arguments can be contentious between those who either support the pros and/or abhor the cons of this service.
