My only real beef is with it being mandatory. Also, thank you so much for your hard work! I didn't feel attacked, was just sharing a different experience. Edit: My mistake - it was the father's new partner who received the booster, not the mother of the two kids. Some people thrive in online classes and that's good - they should have the opportunity to do that. I knew some kids who did self-directed learning in high school and it was awesome.
We should all be concerned when one party starts embracing and encouraging anti-intellectualism. I've watched scenarios in which two politicians will do basically the same thing, but one will be thoroughly shat upon and the other will not even make the headlines. Meanwhile, these campaigns contribute nothing positive - they don't seem to stand for anything. His rationale was that he didn't want any damn daughter of his growing up to leech off the system I mean, there was concern for my future and well-being in there, too.
She stated, matter-of-factly, that nurses are already stretched to the absolute limit and further cuts are going to result in people dying. They still want to see the good old shoulder check. Total respect that you had the focus and discipline to take that kind of work on at that age. I had to upgrade some high school marks to get into university when I was in my 20s, and tried to do it online a few times before enrolling at an adult high school. I was probably a better driver in the truck because the thing beeped like crazy if I turned on the indicator and the sensors detected a car hiding in my blind spot.
It's a good case for having online learning as an option - especially in small towns where courses are already limited. That camera is great for peace of mind when people especially kids are around. I finally noticed a utility was being withdrawn from both my husband's account and mine every month after almost a year. I've never considered her a dramatic person, so when she told me basically what you've said here, it gave me chills. On top of that, my grade 2 kid has special needs and already struggles with sensory overload in a class with 25 kids. When I called customer care the I could almost feel the agent facepalming through the phone.
Making it mandatory for all students, especially those that work better with structure, sounds like a bad idea. I still respectfully disagree, but it's good to know the full story. Had to show up to class each day, had my own locker, had a teacher checking my homework and helping me out when I couldn't get it. It's so slimy, and yet. I thought it would give me an edge, but they forbid me from using it while backing up oddly enough. I want to believe this story is made up, it's so perfectly maddening.
The downside is that I don't catch errors for months because I'm not diligent about looking at my actual bills anymore. . I can see how the power could go to your head if you drove one all the time but the truck driver did not win this round. I don't think he'll be able to manage in a much larger class with even fewer supports. The government has its priorities all out of whack - if funding needs to be cut, they should be looking to make those cuts to horse racing long before education.
That was years ago, and now that we're looking at it becoming a reality, I'm very concerned. At a time when education and other valuable public services are being throttled in the name of 'efficiencies', it seems decadent to be sinking so much money into the gambling industry. . . . .
