Two Weeks Left

Yes, you heard it right. Two weeks left for this school year. Well, actually nine school days. This coming Monday is holiday and we are not force to do any school work. However, they always say, "if you wanted to catch-up or go ahead you can do so, but the hours spent is not counted." Well, why bother if the hours is not counted. I rather spend my three day weekend relaxing and spending it with the family with no learning according to the Department of Education.

Lesson plan for my kindergarten for the next school year is almost ready to be written. I have all of the basic materials. All I need are extras as for the fun part of all the lessons. I think the fun part is the most needed for this age.

He will be five years old for the next school year. That means I got three more years before the Department of Education butt in with my whole teaching at home idea, or should I say, before I report that I am teaching him at home.

I should move back to Philippines and teach them there myself. Department of Education over is not as strict as the one where I live now. It is the parents responsibility to get their children education. Unlike here, the government will take your children away if you do not comply with their regulation/policy. And more likely that the parents will end up in jail for not following the government wishes. Yup, they know better than the children parents, right? I know 70 percent will say yes, however, people like me will say NO! Leave us alone. What I do and what I teach my children is not your business!
