    Here are key considerations for college:
    1) Does state where college is located screw students for drinking. Ex. Pa. charges 300 bucks and yanks your license for first offense for drinking any alcohol–outrageous. 20 Year olds get arrested for one sip, have their license yanked, and get tossed from some state colleges for violating the law.
    2) Do you get 3 or 4 credits for your courses. Many state schools only give 3, which means to graduate you take roughly twenty five percent more exams and write 25% more papers. Dont buy the bs you work harder in 4 credit courses. Its generally nonsense. Five courses each semester croaks students.
    3) What are the requriements for graduation. They vary dramatically, and fewer requirements means teachers can screw you less, and you decide what you want to study. Brown, Smith and Amherst have just major requirements. Umass and Suny screw you with more requirements than a computer can count.

    Dear Lidia Staikova,
    Happy Thanksgiving Day !
    It is my pleasure to read your inspirational and educational blog pages.
    Sometime is a flight over my distant past,
    sometime is a flight over coo-coo nest.
    The wing beneath your wing is always refreshing.
    Thank you.
    I have a Thanksgiving gift for you.
    “The Civilisation” by Kennet Clark, first edition 1967,

    To you, your family and students my best wishes,
