The key to education is knowledge. Education can be gained in a variety of ways like attending school, job training, volunteering, etc. Education is a combination os skills; social, self esteem, personal hygiene, communication, etc. These are the skills you will need to become a learner. No matter what age you are you can always become a learner. Age is unlimited to education.
Another very important tool in education is employment. The more education you have the better the chance you have on gaining employment.
Today in our education system is we now have computers. We think computers are a two way street. Sometimes it makes people lazy because they may take the easy way out. But on the other hand computers can become a useful tool.
The most important thing we would like to point out is that special needs people need supports, Examples: a child who is visually impaired will need large print material, Braille, etc. There needs to be more one on one with students who have learning disabilities.
The most important thing that has to be mentioned is that special needs students need to be understood not pitied.

If I won a large amount of money I would jump for joy. Once I regain my senses I would sit down and start to make arrangements. First I would make sure that my immediate family would be well looked after. Then I would make sure all my grandchildren were taken care of. I would make arrangements for a world tour for the wife and I. It would be a long extended trip.
I would deal with everything when I get back. I would start by getting my finances looked after. I would go looking for a house once that was done. When my finances were up to par I would start looking into the poverty of children here in Canada. I would donate something to them as well as adopt two. That would make me feel good about myself.
My life would change because I am in a higher tax bracket. I would help my good friends with their finances. Having all this time on my hands I would have to find something to do like take some kind of a hobby to monopolize my time.
I would not feel comfortable with new rich friends and I donít think that they would understand me because they havenít been where I was or come from. I would know my real friends because they are the kind of friends that stay by your side whether you have money or not. There are people who just want what ever they can get or take. If they are my best friends I would help them. And I wouldnít want them to feel in debt to me. I think I could be equal to my old friends. The question is could they be loyal to me.
We all have limits even though we donít have money. It is important we donít lose control now that we have this windfall. We have to keep our sanity because we have more to lose. We should be able to go out without any worries about money. Are there two sets of laws, one for the rich and one for the poor? You wouldnít feel safe with that amount of money. There is always that chance of being robbed in this kind of condition you would become self-conscious. Have ones independence is great but if you are not careful you could lose it.
