Did you read this post at Life With Kaishon?
For awhile I have been thinking of ideas regarding schools. I am not a teacher, my children are grown, but I am a concerned citizen. No, that is not the same thing as a nosy old lady with nothing to do.
The women who saw the need in Philadelphia for an early learning center and put the work into all the aspects of opening such a facility deserve a huge applause of appreciation from their community and from all of us too.
I think the word "school" no longer has the strength it once had. Too many tragic things are now associated with "school".
We need to put the emphasis back on the basics of education at all levels of learning.
That is why I am proposing we use the words "learning center". After the little ones are adjusted to the fun of learning at the "Early Learning Centers" like the one in Philadelphia, the little tots advance to "Elementary Learning Center", then to "Middle Learning Center" before entering "Pre-College Learning Center". Emphasis is on LEARNING.
