Thank heavens, we didn't have to fix the system to help ourselves have better lives!
site did not need to be popular, slick or commercial to be effective. It was only designed to provide some information
with as little conflict of interest as possible. It can't help everybody which is why it doesn't work in the
public school system. Reality is that not everybody wants these skills. Whereas, schools are for everybody. Again, this site
can not replace schools or teachers. Most schools and teachers do a wonderful job with what they have available.
The site is simply an information resource designed to help some families. The site is self funded in order to maintain its credibility and independence.
With that in mind, please or be aware that although this
site doesn't do any secret stalking, other entities may not have the same values and may be tracking you.
It is probably a good idea to know what they are doing with the information - so that you can protect yourself.
The new education model is awesome! However, it requires a different set of skills than traditional education models
and different preparation. Families who build the right skills can make themselves much more successful much sooner
on their own than they can waiting for the government, a large corporation or some other bureaucratic
entity to fix the system for them.
Thank you ahead of time for having kept
this site independent and yourself free to chose your own future. That takes a lot of work. Good for you
in doing it!
Just to reiterate, this website is not designed to replace schools or teachers. Most schools and teachers do the
best job they can with what they have available. They just can't be all things to all people. In addition, many
schools have mandated priorities that don't necessarily match all students. Teachers are expected to fix problems
created by other people and some of those problems can't actually be fixed. Public schools are part of the
social welfare infrastructure. Their quality is dependent on the caring, commitment and intellect of the whole community
- the taxpayers, their public leaders and all the participating families. It is up to the participants to maximize
their outcomes. This website has practical information to help parents and students succeed when the system
isn't ideal for them. However, everyone is different. Parents and students must decide which strategies
will work best for them.
Note: Because the majority of my work is off the 'net and requires most of my focus, this site has been made
available to help people succeed no matter their income level or formal education. Thank you for understanding that
staying good at what I do is a very high priority. It takes the almost all of my time and energy.
