On this the occasion of my friend Tim's XLIVth (44th) birthday in Japan, where he is an English teacher, we need II remind folks of the importance of staying in school. If a student(s) needs are not being met, they'll need a little extra motivation. Or perhaps its a case where they need II be home schooled, correspondence &/or online learning, etc. They might also fit well in more of a special needs environment, rather then a regular classroom.
The key is Tim says kids must be educated in some format, in some way. There are kids of all ages according to Tim. In Japan, some of the biggest classes are those run with seniors aged 60 & over. Which just proves you are never II old II learn.
So stay smart, stay in school kids!
Happy Birthday Tim,
