New evidence on the long-term effects of grade retention in third grade shows some good news among the nuance. I believe many of homeless do not want to work. So sad. Living on the streets is time consuming and hard work. Many become so adjusted to homeless it becomes a way of life. Begging bread each day is a norm. Scriptures say not to beg bread. Jesus was talking to HIS disciples. He told them He would provide. He made the way and their work was to share the good news. They lived in lack much of the time and much of the time lived in plenty. Paul lived in lack and he also experienced the finer things though the church of God. Paul learned how to be content in feast or famine. His joy was full in Jesus Christ. He knew His eternal home. It is all about Jesus for me as it should be. I am not perfect there is only one perfect. We all fall short the glory of God.
This is really interesting. I’ve always wondered what the kids perspective would be once they were all grown up after homeschooling. Socialization, after school activities, and college … Read more

Update on the Leap Frog Letter Factory: My 3 year old son loves it! He asked to watch it three times the first day we brought it home from the library and now he sings the song, sounding out letters as he goes. It’s great! Thanks for the recommendation, Shawn.
Studying at university is cool because you learn academic skills. As a result, you end up with a more critical attitude, and you do not believe everything published or broadcast. And at one time or another, you’ll get to do research about a topic of personal interest.
Another great outside activity. Chalk in the backyard or on the sidewalk outside. It can be washed away when the rain comes or before then with a big bucket of water. If you have an easel, you could put it up in the kitchen and use the chalk on the board too.

Thank you Jane !!! I just want all parents to know really what is out there. I am not against any method I am for deaf kids being able to read. I am truly tired of the divisions and parents being given information on only one method. The scientific approach is not being used in deaf education.
This lens is a great eye-opener to help people understand how homelessness happens. Blessed by a SquidAngel. We cut out bits of a shark drawing and wrote questions and answers in lift the flap form.

A right to education has been recognized by some governments, including at the global level: Article 13 of the United Nations ‘ 1966 International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights recognizes a universal right to education. 2 In most regions, education is compulsory up to a certain age. This article puts little emphasis on the role of the teacher and the relationship they have with the children, which many studies have shown to be the biggest indicator for high quality early childhood education. There is some great info here but it seems this article is missing a big point.
The studies quoted below suggest that sign language provides deaf children with a point of reference from which they can learn English. When a child knows a sign and understands its concept, it is easier for the child to understand and learn an English word.

In addition to homeschooling my son, I’m one of the organizers of a local homeschool co-op. We get together for classes once a week and enjoy such things as hands-on science experiments, recorder class, sharing the poems and stories we’ve written at home, fun writing activities, critical thinking activities, hands on activities that help us learn about various cultures, art, lunch, and of course recess.
Compliments are very unsettling to me and it makes the likelihood of me having something intelligent to say drop like a rock. I also tend to fail to understand all of the rules of social etiquette unless I can read them somewhere and even then I often fail to properly generalize them. I had nothing coherent or valuable to … Read more

I think it’s a matter of expectations. Having taken online courses and traditional courses personally, and having interacted with students and with employees with both types, there is a difference. So education gained through attending schools and colleges is not necessarily the best education or even the right education.

When your civilization discovers a new technology, a relevant quote pops up and is read by Leonard Nimoy. Truth be told, I enjoyed all the other reasons listed above as well—except for the research, which involves a lot of statistics and math, subjects I try to avoid like the plague. In 2008, for instance, international test results revealed that Filipinos were behind compared to other countries when we finished dead last in math.
Excellent, excellent and again I say: excellent. As one who homeschooled her children for years and only reluctantly sends them to a charter academy now (mama’s gotta work!), I well know that your assessments here are right on track. And you support your findings beautifully, by the way.

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. And increasing the average level of higher education in a country by just one year can add half a percentage point of growth to GDP. very nice. can i borrow 2 bucks? i need to buy a coffee to keep me up all night reading your books.

Just a quick note to say how well-written and full of information I found this article. I do not know anyone with dyslexic children, but I did know a dyslexic adult at a job once who was an administrator, a job with numbers. He always needed someone to check his work as a second pair of eyes, nonetheless he was an excellent and highly successful administrator for a large medical practice. Bravo for working with your son and bravo for you son’s ability and determination to adapt. Great tips.

Education is like food and shelter. It is considered basic to one’s life. While food is for health and shelter for the body, education is for the mind. In reading this post, I have learned a few things about homeschooling. I am beginning homeschool with my oldest child in August. I have read some blogs that allude to the fact that we can teach whatever we want, but fail to mention that a lot of the things kids learn in school are required because the colleges require them. All lower education standards are set just so, in prep. for the bigger steps.
