Education must begin at home wherever you are in the world. Since this blog is aimed at Spanish readers, let me beam this article to the appropriate audience. For those Spanish readers out there who understand English, let me tell you and exhort you to educate your children as early as when they begin talking. Try this out with some tips from your child’s pediatrician and child psychologist. Once he or she enters nursery school, there are child psychologists at school who will assist you.
But it is more advantageous to buy your children books in English. You can also teach them English using the Internet or some soft form of learning. These can begin by introducing the appropriate English terms to certain simple objects like for instance an olive tree. An olive tree is called aceltuna in Spanish. Your child already knows the Spanish name obviously. All you need to do is teach him or her English.
During the first day of your child at school, make sure to pay attention to his or her actions. This can be very important as a child’s brain is the most precarious and can develop through and through if it is well-fed with relevant lessons. Make sure that you be absent from work that day for both parents. If you can afford it, then enroll your child in the best schools such as the ones using the Montessori or the Waldorf or the Jesuit system. Once your child finishes high school, he or she can enter college smoothly.
It is now time for the child to choose what program he or she would like to undertake. Never ever demand your child to take a certain program that he or she doesn’t like and be alert if your child perhaps, needs some special education. Be very sensitive to this or otherwise the child cannot optimize his or her learning if she or he is forced to take up medicine or engineering perhaps. The child has his or her own talents and skills that needed to be nurtured and it is these talents that must be enhanced through tertiary education. For information on charter schools, check out this post.
A child’s tertiary education preparedness starts as early as when he or she is still in junior high. Your kid must be well-prepared every time there’s a college admissions fair coming into the school. A college admissions fair usually has lots of college admissions staff participating and recruiting would-be students in their colleges.
During this affair, it is imperative to impress the college visitors with your resume and college admissions essay. They will later contact you regarding your college admissions essay for possible inculcation into their enrollment system. Be sure too to know what programs are available for you in those particular colleges which are of course to your liking.
If the college is too far from you and you deem it inappropriate to be in a boarding school because of the expenses, then there are two alternatives – enrolling in a community college or in an online college. An online college is just like a correspondence institution; only emails are delivered online of course. Other schemes don’t need emails. What they need are student accounts. You need to log in to your student account to retrieve the daily lessons.
Over the last decades, we’ve seen the rise of a great number of so-called charter schools. Charter schools are, simply put, publicly funded, tuition-free schools that are more autonomous and independent than our traditional schools. Charter schools, however, can be held more and better accountable for meeting specific charter school-related provisions and the achievements of their students.
In America, all states have laws that dictate a broad range of regulations and activities that relate to charter schools. We’re talking about student recruitment, staff, school funding. More can be read in this article about Epic Charter Schools. Regulations generally vary by state but we can see some general practices. Charter schools are usually not constrained by the same requirements that apply to public schools such as bureaucratic and union requirements and rules.
