Imagine that you are sitting in a chair in a movie theater for your entire life. The theater is dark and all you can see is the wide movie screen in front of you. You can’t move because your hands and your ankles are tied to the chair. The back of the chair is high above your head so that it is impossible for you to look behind. All you can see is this wide screen in front of you and people sitting next to you in the same chair as you are seated. You’ve been watching movie...


Mauritius Island is not just about stunning beaches, the Sun, summer, beautiful sights, amazing food, delicious fruits, a rich folklore, a mix of cultures, hospitality and the “Paradise Island” that is portrayed on postal cards, describing perfect spots for tourists to spend their holidays. Since 1968, at the occasion of the Independence Day on the 12th of March, our National Anthem is heartily sung in every corner of the Island: “As one people, as one nation, in peace, j...

To my knowledge, the major problems that the children of today's world are facing are malnutrition, gender inequality, child labor, child marriage, female genital mutilation, sexual crimes, war/violence, depression, lack of education, drug addiction, lack of emotional security etc. So, if I could make some wishes for children in 25 years time then I would make the following wishes: First of all, I wish that no child fetus will be aborted because of being a girl. I wish that every...

Today, the whole world is celebrating International Day of the Girl Child. This year’s theme is “Empowering Adolescent Girls: Ending the Cycle of Violence”. This theme reflects that of the London Summit, in which my colleague Nathan (a children’s reporter) and I participated in July, as representatives of the Congolese children. For Day of the Girl Child, we hope to focus our message on child marriage. Child marriage is unfortunately a widespread practice in our country...

Plato once said that a man’s education will determine his future in life, and many more have said that it opens doors for the impoverished, the poor, and the less fortunate. A generation’s or a country’s success is often determined by the education it receives. Lyndon B. Johnson (the United States’ 36th president) knew that fact very well. In the 1960s, he started the Great Society programs aimed at developing healthcare, social security, but most importantly education. He...

The word “education” is derived from the Latin “educere,” which means “to lead out.” An educator, logically, would be one who devotes his or her life to leading out the future of this world. What an outstanding vocation teachers follow, then; what a calling! One who draws forth potential from youth selflessly and tirelessly, committing himself to planting the tree from which his children can draw fruit, to building the cathedral where throngs will gather long after he h...

I recently studied for and took the SAT, the standardized test required for admission for many US universities. This process led me to do a lot of research about standardized testing, which has made me really think- should standardized testing be required? Standardized testing aims to test a student's basic ability, predict his/her success in college, and provide a good comparison between students. The ACT and SAT are both standardized tests, and standardized tests have many term...
