Parents' Complaints --- Arrogant Public Schools Turn a Deaf Ear by Joel Turtel
... For instance, many public schools have introduced classes and books about homosexuality into elementary and high-school sex-education classes. When parents find out about these classes, they frequently complain to the school principal and local politicians. To avoid these complaints, public schools often try to keep secret from parents what they teach in these sex-ed classes. Moreover, teachers, principals, and school authorities don't have to listen to those amateur, irritating parents who ...
Back to School Savings: Six Ways to Save Money During Back-to-school Time by Jamie Jefferson
... Don’t spend too much on back-to-school clothes before school begins. Every child looks forward to having something new for the first day of school. That doesn’t mean each child needs an entirely new wardrobe. With many schools starting in August, the weather is too hot for the fall and winter clothes that they’ll need for the duration of the school year. And if you shop too far in advance, your child could actually outgrow an outfit before it’s time to wear it.
Back to School Checklist by Kathy Burns-Millyard
... As children move into junior high, high school and college, they'll require a larger variety of the basics too. Instead of just blue pens for instance, they often need blue, black and red. It's good to know the teachers at this point by the way: Some do not allow gel pens to be used for instance, while others may forbid red pens or yellow markers. 4. Misc. Tools: These change from one grade to another, but generally additional tools of some kind are needed for just about any age range.
Explode Your World With Possibilities by Saleem Rana
... The reason why all our problems appear overwhelming and unsolvable is because of a massive conspiracy, since the beginning of recorded history, to suppress intelligence. In the 20th century, we have invented more things than the entire history of the human race. How? It is because as a species, we have allowed more intelligent people to have a say in what is going on in the world. The industrial revolution created a demand for more brain power and a small minority of people responded.
Back to School Savings by Cheryl Johnson
... Realizing this, I know a few new outfits will suffice for the beginning of the school year. I usually add new outfits throughout the year as my budget allows and always include some new clothing in the Christmas gift list for each child. Of course, I prepare early on, catching all the sales and scanning all the clearance racks. Many times, I will purchase school clothing many months ahead of time when the winter inventory goes on clearance at the stores.
Getting Your Children Ready for School by Chick Moorman
... Begin the morning and evening school routine at least two weeks before school actually starts. Don’t expect that your child will be able to make the adjustment to getting up for school quickly or easily without a break-in period. Take the full two weeks to work into the routine slowly by adjusting the bedtime and wakeup time a few minutes every day until the desired time is reached. Your goal is to have the schedule set prior to the first day of school.
Teach Your Kids Arithmetic - "The Nifty Five Square Technique" by Joe Pagano
... Now, let us begin with the method. In order to calculate the product of 15 x 15, all one need do is take the digit 1, which is the “tens” digit and multiply that by one more than the “tens” digit. Thus 1 + 1 = 2, and 1 x 2 = 2. Then just attach 25 to the number 2 to get your product. Thus 15 x 15 = 225. For the other numbers we have the following: 25 x 25 = 625 (2 x 3 = 6)
35 x 35 = 1225 (3 x 4 = 12)
45 x 45 = 2025 (4 x 5 = 20)
55 x 55 = 3025 (5 x 6 = 30)
65 x 65 = 4225 (6 x 7 = 42) ...
The Shocking Secret Behind Your Math Blocks by Kenneth Williams
... If you have kids in school or college, you can guarantee their brains are stuck in reverse gear too. Why? Because the education establishment doesn't like rapid change. It prefers the traditional "Tried & Tested" approach. Unfortunately, as you know, the traditional approach doesn't always work. (If it did, why are there an estimated two million people suffering from 'math phobia' in the United States alone? And that's not including the millions more who could dramatically improve their ...
