I am supporting this kind of movement. Closing of the schools should be opposed because, what will happen to all those people who wants to return to education?ReplyDelete
If I have a chance, I would support this movement. Schooling is an opportunity we can't miss, and we should consider ourselves lucky for having opportunities. We can't close schools just because of its issues - think about the ones who are applying for charity or scholarships just to study. If we can't take that opportunity, let's give it to someone else who appreciates it and needs it most.ReplyDelete
Correct! I'm so glad some people still understand that. Like my child; I believe she has a potential to be a writer some day, but not finishing school has quite an impact on her self-esteem. Being a parent, I would do everything to support her and make her realize that she'll be successful, but the way I see it, education is the only way. I'm sending her back to school. I never lose hope that one day, she'll be a great writer and all her works will be copyrighted.Delete
