I personally feel that to require children to go to school against their wishes or the wishes of their parents, under penalty of going to jail or losing their children, is involuntary servitude, which is prohibited by the constitution. As it stands, even parents who chose to home school are required to structure their teaching around the schools education system, which is often why parents choose to home school in the first place. IDEA classification is not permanent for all children. Children may be declassified academic performance improves. Some disabilities are temporary, and a child may no longer require services once the situation is resolved. i agree with the whole article, because it is like a crime to home schooled your children, they are missing out everything that is supposed to be part of growing up, being a teenager.
However, it is undeniable that there will be problems that arise as we implement the program, which could include a lack of budget, classrooms, school supplies, and teachers. That said, the long-term effects of K-12 education will be very beneficial to us Filipinos.
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 took my son up to Virginia recently and we hit the war museum and though he knew that WWI amd WWII happened, he didn’t know why. We spent a good deal of time having a history lesson there and we had more during the remainder of our trip. I trusted the school system to teach my children what it taught me but I found it lacking. I taught him more about history in one week than he had learned in five years. And he loved it!
At the high school level, it’s not unusual to have an SAI class in which one or two students are reading at 1st grade level and others at 3rd, 4th, and 10th grade level. Also, it’s not surprising to have students designated with mild/moderate disabilities (auditory or visual disorders, Asperger’s, ADD/ADHD) and students with severe disorders (intellectual or developmental disorders, low-functioning autism, and emotional disorders) placed in the same classroom. This has created a volatile mixture that has made classroom discipline and effectiveness nearly impossible.
This is probably the easiest as well as the hardest of the lot. To become a politician you need an inner drive to do well for society. You might be laughing at my sentence but the job of a politician is hard. There are other activities relating to the periodic table that many students find fun. Some of these are classified as creative activities rather than games, but like games they can be very enjoyable.
