You Better Send Your Children To Private School

In some areas here in the UK you simply cannot send your children to public schools any longer! I have seen them wanting to stuff the children in class rooms with more than forty children! In many larger cities like London or Birmingham, the teachers are stressed out and seem rather happy to get the day over with than actually being motivated to teach, especially those children with learning difficulties. Problem, in a class with more than forty children no teacher can dedicate much time to those children that would actually need it!

private schoolI have long come to the conclusion that private schools are a much better choice for the children. Many of my relatives and friends who send children to private school for generations only confirm this to me!

Pretty much all of those children ended up mature and polite with well-paying jobs now. This is entirely different when I look at those children that were schooled in public schools. A lot of them barely made it through school with average grades. They also told me that their teachers didn’t really attend to them.

Fortunately we have lots of good private schools here in the UK which means there is an always an option to give your child the best education. If you happen to live in Hertfordshire and look for some good Hertfordshire private schools I definitely recommend the Kingshottschool. This is where Jeff and Linda sent their children and they’re extremely happy! They love this school! The oldest is now almost done with the school and he’s already lined up a great job at a software company. Believe it or not, I really think that some firms take applicants just because they know they attended a good school! This is another reason you should look into private schools for your children. Do it if you want the best for your children!

Where would you like to travel to?

Rome

My husband and I like to travel and recently we’re hooked on Europe. We’ve pretty much done all the major domestic destination already, from the obligatory Rocky Mountains, Grand Canyon to Disneyworld and Disneyland in California and Florida.

But in terms of a really good vacation and for when you really want to see new things I don’t think there’s anything better than going to Europe. In the last four years we have been to the UK, Germany, France and Italy. Each of those places has its very unique charm and flair but I think the overall winner here was Italy. I attribute that to the great weather, friendly people and the fantastic things we saw in Rome. It was an unforgettable trip, no doubt.

When we talk with others we can often see that they’re pretty shocked since they think we must be rich to be able to afford going to such places. But let me tell you that those trips were not that much more expensive than staying in Disneyland Florida. The secret here is that you need to know where to look online to get in on the cheapest flights and best deals for hotels. You can save even more money if you skip the hotels altogether and just rent an apartment for a week or two. We did that on two occasions. Heck, if you’re younger you might even rent a camper or a tent if you dare. Once you find a cheap flight (and there are many sites that allow you to find them easily) you’re basically already half way there, the rest is on you and depends only on how much you’re willing to spend.

One thing is for sure, with the internet it’s so much easier today to travel the world without having to spend a lot of money.
