Quality Education Through Common Core Training

In the last few years, a lot of media attention has been paid to America’s apparently failing public school system. As other countries get better at teaching their young populations important subjects like math and science, students in the United States are falling behind the rest of the world. Many blame the lack of funding for public schools while others blame the lack of quality teachers. Either way, the importance of getting American youth the quality education that they deserve doesn’t change.

Common core training by Mentoring Minds provides the in-depth innovative learning tools that will enable your children to develop for college in ways that can’t be matched by other programs. Common core training involves a wide variety of multimedia and hands-on tools that allow learners of all types to get involved with the subject material and learn on more than a superficial level. The standards are set by leaders in teaching and education, and they are designed to produce results that work. The high-tech modern economy requires educational standards that aren’t afraid to innovate and look outside the box. Students who learn through common core standards will experience an educational environment that is designed to produce quality citizens for the future. If you’re not really sure that Mentoring Mind’s programs are for you, a free trial is available so that you can experience the program first-hand.

When It Rains, It Pours

These past two months there were just drizzles of blessings coming our way but since the other day, blessings started to pour again. God is so good, as always. He knows that we are in dire need of money for it will be enrollment again in less than 2 months. Here in the Philippines, if you want quality education, you should be willing to spend more.

Bear with me if I can’t visit your sites as often as before. My work is neck-deep coupled with this pestering scheduled brownout which causes the delay of everything (posting, blog hopping, some household chores, etc). 

Looks like the system here is getting worst each year and it saddens me. As much as I want to keep my fingers crossed, there are times that I am losing hope for the future generations (sigh). But then, there are other things to be thankful of like the blessings we are receiving right now. As the saying goes, “When it rains, it pours”, and I like to thank our good Lord for that. Hope good blessings would continue to shower us all. I will visit your sites as soon as I can.

Problems In Public Schools

It is enrollment time again. May is the enrollment month here in the Philippines. Classes in public schools will start on June 1 and June 8 on private schools. This is the school where we enrolled our daughter for her second grade. It’s a big school, catering pre-school to college, with good facilities. Trees are surrounding the whole campus and there are cottages where the students can stay during their breaktime. We’re glad that there’s no tuition fee increase this year though it still costs us my hubby’s whole 13th month pay plus a little from our savings just for the tuition fee down payment and books, uniform and other school supplies are excluded. It is quite a fortune sending our children in private school but we don’t mind because it is the only wealth we can give to our dear daughter…good quality education.

 

I have nothing against public schools because I am a graduate of public school, elementary and high school, but because of the problems and current situation of the public schools, we can’t afford to send our child there. During our time, the maximum student per classroom is 30. Nowadays, public schools in NCR and its suburbs have 70-100 students per classroom. Wow! The teacher must be very good to handle these number of students. In some schools, 2 classes are sharing in a classroom or having their classes on corridors or under the tree. There are also schools that divided their classes into 3 shifts, 3-4 hours per shift. I wonder if the students can learn in such short period. Comfort room is also a problem. Imagine a school of 500 students with just 1 comfort room to share with. Plus text books with wrong information and contents. (sigh!!!)

Lack of classrooms and good facilities in public schools is the same problem the Department of Education is facing every year for years now and yet the government can’t resolve this. The government must give priority and big budget to education. We are paying taxes and yet our children can’t have affordable quality education. 

Why can’t YOU traditional politicians resolve important issues? Stop pulling down your political opponents. Just work hand in hand…will you? Please?!
