Under the 1833 Factory Act no child could work in factories under the age of nine; and the hours children could work was limited, according to their age e.g. 9 to 13 year olds could not work for more than nine hours, and 13 to 18 year olds could not work for more than 12 hours a day. It is a good way to be eco-friendly to our environment and also save up some minutes for ourselves. There are lots of opportunities for you online! Seriously. If you enjoy writing, marketing, social media, sales, education, entertainment, media, web design, computers, or programming, there’s no stopping you!
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.
Prudence L. Carter , professor from the University of California at Berkeley contends that Brown v. Board of Education was intended to counteract stereotype and bias but desegregation has allowed little true integration. Educational inequity must be addressed by assessing the role that race plays as it relates to racial disparities in the classroom (2016).
Colleges actually teach very little outside of how to think and reason…and some never learn that part of of their education. All the little facts, the history, even the English lessons pale beside that one simple concept of learning to think, and the smartest among us already know that while the educated ignorant never get it.
Typically my son will start to yawn about 10 minutes after starting his work, especially if it’s math. He is not alone and it shows that he is working very hard. Dyslexics have to work much, much harder at processing literacy and numeracy. It is exhausting.
These suggestions regarding education is in favor of our current Outcomes Base Education model, which proved to be not successful. Syllabuses have to be reviewed and improved. It is happening at the moment, I know. We are waiting in anticipation to the improved model, though we lost many possible leaders during the past ten years, since OBE was implemented.
