Classroom: an entrance into the world

Revised

“The classroom should be an entrance into the world, not an escape from it.”- John Ciardi

When we think of classroom, the first thing comes to mind; a room in one school building, full of educational materials with nice design and decorations. And now, it can be a room that is well equipped of modern technology like TVs, LCD projectors and computers. But what if it is just a room with blackboard and chairs inside, no educational materials even an alphabet posters, animal charts which is commonly present in kinder and primary classroom. And it is not even properly covered. Like this:

Those are the classrooms in Biao, an Indigenous People (Manobo) village on top of the mountain. Despite their rooms looks empty, it has a great value on everyone because it was built by the effort of community themselves. The teachers said, “We really need at least a visual aid that the students can see the picture of what we are talking about, like animals and things describe in an alphabet.” Even their classroom is lacking of so many things, still the students learned and very enthusiastic to learn more. But how can their classroom be an entrance into the world? If even a simple educational materials wasn’t available.

So far the local government and department of education only approved the Day care (Kinder) in Biao. It was last school year the old students already proceeded to primary level but the government’s department of education doesn’t yet formally approve the primary school in Biao. So the village still waiting to the government approval and hoping that it will also provide classrooms and teachers in Biao. Certainly, it is the government responsibility to do so, the holder of the master key to open the door and give a chance the Biao students explore the world.

    Currently it appears like WordPress is the
    top blogging platform available right now.

    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?
