Education

Dear Ms Morgan, I am writing as a Chair of Governors of a voluntary aided 2 form entry primary school, however I am not writing on behalf of the staff or children of our school – these are my own views. I am also not intending to blame you for everything that is happening in our schools at the moment as I fully understand that you are but one of many people who have tinkered with our education system over recent years. As a governor at our school, I have been going in to school this week to see the process of opening the SATs papers and then to observe the tests taking place. There are two main reasons for this letter and please be assured, I am not a letter writer or a complainer – I usually leave that to others! Firstly, yesterday! I’m sure by now you are fed up with...

As our freshman year comes to a close I'd like to tell you thank you. Thank you for letting me borrow your children, whom you love more than anything. Please know that when you cried tears of sadness the day you moved them in, I cried tears of joy knowing I would have a family away from home. As I learned how to "adult" this year, I learned what my mom was always talking about when it came to "the real stressors of life". I learned people won't always give as much love back to you as you give to them. I learned sometimes you HAVE to pull an allnighter even though you've already been awake for 48 hours. I learned that trips to Sheetz and Walmart at 2 o'clock in the morning can turn out to be more fun than any real vacation. I learned if you all eat hibachi together and stuff yourself so...

Hello. How are you today. I would like to begin this letter by stating that I am a woman and understand how difficult it is to be born with a small penis. No man chooses the size of his penis, if men could choose every man would be well hung and penis size would not be an issue. However, that is not the case and penis size is an issue and it is one issue that is the most and still least talked about on the planet. How can it be the most and least talked about you ask? Well, we women speak about at great lengths with each other and men also speak about it with each other but we never seem to speak about it with the opposite sex. I would like to change that. I am sure that we all would like to enjoy sex all of the time, every time but there are many misconceptions about penis size and...

The matter of class size is a formidable argument and your child’s poor academic performance may be the outcome. Studies have proven that lower class sizes, at least in the earliest grades, are linked to positive educational benefits such as better test scores, fewer dropouts and higher graduation rates, especially for disadvantaged children (2). While some believe smaller classes are optimal for kids, Lawmakers, School officials and Policy makers think otherwise. They know the benefits of class size but are too concerned with money, they agree that those benefits outweigh the costs. Now the question we should ask ourselves is, should improving schools be all about money or the education? Lawmakers as well as school officials should give adequate funding to ensure smaller class size...

Dear SeaWorld, I am writing you in concern of the orcas that you have. I'm curious as to why you would be willing and able to spend 400 millon dollars on expanding 4 orca enclosure, but can't put that money to good use and build a beautiful sanctuary for the orcas? This may not agree with some activists but I'm not one of them. Think about the money you could bring in to let your guests visit this sanctuary and see these highly entellgent beings where they belong. Just think about it and what you could do!! You can have a info center and a place where people can learn about these beings!! You could also attach GoPros to them and do real study on how orcas behave in their real environment. You can also give live feeds for other to view from home. I don't think Keiko was a failure at...

As a young woman who is trying to decide where to spend the next four years of my life, I've been traveling around the country and participating in the information days. I am a prospective engineering student and recently attended a college of engineering informational tour. One thing has stuck out to me among these engineering specific days or even the letters I receive. All these universities want me, according to their form letters, but do they actually want me, or do they want the statistical advantage I bring to them. "We pride ourselves in being one of leading engineering programs for women. Our numbers recently increased to 26%!" Now, as a future female engineer, 26% seems low to me, but I get it. Engineering is typically a man's major. Guess what? I don't want to be a...

You don’t understand what it feels like to have your hopes come crashing down in a matter of seconds. You can’t possibly understand the precious seconds filled with wild hope and racing heartbeats before your brain process the “sorry but we cannot accept you” message on your computer screen. Who are you, but strangers, being handed our lives, our tears, our hardships, all the mountains we’ve braved, and being told to judge us for all the times we’ve stumbled in the process of reaching the summit? You don’t understand how much power you have. You have more than just someone’s story; you hold a person’s future. No stranger should have that much power. No stranger should be allowed to shape the course of a person’s life. You don’t know anything about us. You don’t know anything, except...
