Education is Where It’s At
Disclosure: I was not compensated for this post, but I was provided details about Pre-K 4 SA and the logo used below. However, all views and opinions expressed are strictly my own.
You better believe that I know Education is Where It’s At! Every bone in my body tells me so, which is why I have such a passion and affinity to life long learning. Why? Because I’m living proof; and if you’ll indulge me, I’d like to take a moment to combine my work with my passions and share them with you here. 😀
As a Mexican-American, born into a migrant family, where Spanish was the predominant language, I know choosing education over everything else is what’s allowed me to live a financially stable, fulfilling life. Don’t get me wrong, I realize that you can also get here without a formal education, but even education gained informally via the School of Hard Knocks or Life counts as education in my book. 😉
Formal education, like everything else is a choice, but access to it shouldn’t be. From Pre-K to higher ed, having to pay higher premiums to access a good education can be dividing, which is unfortunate.
This is why I was happy to learn about Pre-K 4 SA. It’s a full-day program for 4-year-olds, made up of certified master teachers, which aims to go beyond the ABCs and give children the tools needed to succeed. As in other promising approaches to education, there is a lottery system that requires an application submission between February 24 through June 6. If you’re in San Antonio and will have a 4 year old for the 2014-2015 school year, check them out. 🙂
Regardless of where you fall on the state and cost of our current education system, I think we can all agree that we want our children to become productive members of our society and reach a little further than we did. To that end, I think education, guidance and opportunity can only enhance that desire, taking it from a dream, to reality. 😉
How has education (formal/informal) helped you in your life?
