See all of this as a very positive stream of developments. World-wide, more and more children are successfully completing high school, qualifying themselves to apply their minds to a certificate, diploma or degree of their choice. And while these young men and women are making it this far in life, their older and more mature peers are getting it right too. They have come to realize the importance of having a good education. Without even a basic education, you can only go so far in life.
And that is only if you are fortunate enough to do so. But even so, that limitation has become a misnomer. Because today, you can go as far as you pretty well please. Previously, classes always held up their house full signs and only so many fortunate students could get in. And because of the stiff competition for class space, the students that made it in were doing so with extremely high marks. Unfortunately, socio-economic circumstances have not made it any easier for a growing number of men and women, interested in furthering their studies, to achieve the highest marks possible.
But today, with the arrival of the online classroom, everything is possible. Even an A plus in math and science is possible. You would need this if, say, you wanted to study any of the disciplines within the health services sector. Previously, there may have been limitations in this area in the sense that much of the work is practical. But today, nursing student help can be dispensed quite judiciously now that you have the use of online digital portals that allow you to engage directly with you tutor or mentor.
Not in words. Not delayed. But face to face and live.
