Teaching writing is not a program. It doesn’t follow a specific set of steps. Programmatic writing instruction is the reason so many kids don’t like writing, and so many adults still lack confidence as writers!

Private school vs. public school: Only bad people send their kids to private school.
Public Schools, Dx Privateschool, Schools Matter, Private Schools, Privateschool Well, Education Attainable, Cohesive Educational, Schools Provocative
Written to get a reaction, but I get it. How can one make good education attainable for a child who would otherwise receive poor education?
Why public schools matter. http://www.slate.com/articles/double_x/doublex/2013/08/private_school_vs_public_school_only_bad_people_send_their_kids_to_private.html
Bad people send their kids to PrivateSchool - well - kind of - can't judge - but believe in - if everyone did this...
Allison Benedikt of Slate mag says that if you put your children in private schools, you are a bad person. Your children should be sacrificed to failing public schools for the future generations.
If You Send Your Kid to Private School, You Are a Bad Person You are a bad person if you send your children to private school. Not bad like murderer bad—but bad like ruining-one-of-our-nation’s-most-essential-institutions-in-order-to-get-what’s-best-for-your-kid bad. So, pretty bad.
“In our upper-middle-class world, it is hard not to pay for something if you can and you think it will be good for your kid.” I get it: You want an exceptional arts program and computer animation and maybe even Mandarin. You want a cohesive educational philosophy. You want creativity, not teaching to the test. You want great outdoor space and small classrooms and personal attention. You know who else wants those things? Everyone.

Teach Your Monster to Read: First Steps - iPad Trailer. The BAFTA-nominated, multi-award winning Teach Your Monster to Read: First Steps is to be released on tablet exclusively for the iPad, on the 24th July 2014. Get it here: http://teachyourmonstertoread.com/ipad The game is a phonics-based reading adventure for children aged 3 - 6. It was created and developed by The Usborne Foundation. Children create their own monster and take it on an adventure through a magical world. They travel to colourful places, meet the mysterious Island Kings and collect rewards as their monster learns the first steps of reading. The game helps children to develop speed and accuracy of letter recognition, plus developing their ability to blend and segment words. It follows the teaching sequence in the UK Government-recommended “Letters and Sounds” programme. The game has been designed in collaboration with academics from Roehampton University and features Simon Farnaby from BBC’s Horrible Histories.

The intellectual benefits of the real old-fashioned summer. "What has changed since then? It’s not the screens. It’s not video games or Minecraft or cartoons or comic books. It’s freedom. Not just the freedom to roam around physically, but the freedom that comes from not being under the parental microscope all the time — the freedom that comes from just being a kid when no one thought what you did all day mattered that much."
