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. Higher education typically involves work towards a degree-level or foundation degree qualification. In most developed countries, a high proportion of the population (up to 50%) now enter higher education at some time in their lives. Higher education is therefore very important to national economies , both as a significant industry in its own right and as a source of trained and educated personnel for the rest of the economy.

There was also a rule that all ships passing through the Alexandrian harbor had to declare if they had any works of science or philosophy.

I said that he would be drawing his homework and that I would be writing down his words, unless he wanted to write, of course.
Super lens. I love Shel Silverstein. Then again, who doesn’t? Thanks for the great links. Though, I should add, in the case of relationships, intelligence and level of education are not synonymous. So great to come across things like this that are actually informative … Read more
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. Part of the individualized educational plan requires the determination of the child’s least restrictive environment (LRE). For the vast majority of children receiving an IEP, the least restrictive environment is a general education classroom (mainstream classroom).

I noticed on Jan. 5, I had already left you my comment, but unlike the other writers, you never acknnowledged mine. Guess you were busy. Doing homework together gave me so many opportunities to praise my son for something real. Empty praise is useless, but a good piece of homework is a great way for them to earn praise that means something.
