Last night while I was watching mind numbing television after the kids went to sleep I saw a commercial for Zui.com. Now normally I don't pay too much attention to commercials. They are just noise but this one caught my attention because it was for an educational website. I got on and it was definitely not what I expected. I thought it would be another game site for kids but it's not. It's a site that offers collections of games on any subject. Kind of like Google. You type in what you want to learn about and then everything they have comes up.

CNN article

I just read this CNN article that one of my friends posted on Facebook. Wow is all I can say. It's sad but true. I posted the article in red, then I'll tell you what I think.

Get involved!!!

I recently attended a back to school lesson put on by my church. This was a how to get started with the new school year class. WOW. Boy was it amazing. I took notes to share.
Educating a child is like a table with 3 legs. All three legs need to be there or it will fail. inorder for a child to succeed they need supportive and active parents, they need to be interested in learning, and then there is the teacher. I have seen it time and time again where the teacher is blamed for the child not succeeding. Remember the teacher is only 1/3 of the equation. There could be a few problems like a learning disability with the child. In my experience it has been the parents lack of support in the child's education.
