Overheard at a cafe:
The trouble with international schools is that they are full of children, whose parents have earned a lot of money, very fast. These children have the notion that money can buy anything and that money can substitute for love.
Children who go to these schools thus tend to end up with the wrong set of values, unless the parents are really careful.
Never thought of it like this but its quite true, isn't it?
"International" school is term used in Sri Lanka to describe fee levying schools that teach in English. They operate outside the normal educational system, come in all shapes and sizes. A few are known to offer a good education, many are abysmal.
