eBook (ePub): $3.00
Many American Presidents were Rhodes Scholars. Is this a coincidence? How about the United World Colleges? There have been wealthy and benevolent people in the past who set up schools and programs... More > because they wanted young people to see other cultures, meet other people and develop a united view of humanity. I was an international student. It wasn’t that big of a deal, going from Halifax, Canada to Gainesville, Florida but I did live in the International Student House on University Avenue near NW 4TH St. with a hundred guys from all over the world where I learned that we’re all the same. Countries are just artificial borders. It was a hassle though to do all that paperwork then have to buy medical insurance on top of it. I say if you got the means and the guts, go for it. The Council On International Educational Exchange (CIEE) offers many travel programs, work exchange programs and discount tour packages to students worldwide. They also offer educational tours abroad for groups of adults.< Less

The “People Power” Education Superbook: Book 24. Graduate School Guide By Tony Kelbrat
eBook (ePub): $3.00
Back in the day if you got a graduate degree in almost anything, you could get a decent job. Companies and organizations hired people with social science master’s degrees because they assumed... More > they could think deep thoughts and express themselves clearly but the mystique of a person with a graduate degree is gone in modern-day society. The internet has made knowledge easily available. The illusion that people with graduate degrees are wise and intelligent is gone because so many people got doctorates who look, talk and act like flakes. I don’t respect graduate degrees anymore unless it’s in a highly technical field. If you got a Phd in sociology, I’m thinking another bullcrapper thinking they know something when if they really did, they’d know their degree and all that stuff they learned about that fake field called sociology is modern-day crap.< Less
The "People Power" Education Superbook: Book 13. Educate a Child from Birth (Through the Eyes of a Child Flow Wonder & Curiosity) By Tony Kelbrat
eBook (ePub): $3.60
There are about 100 billion nerve cells or neurons in your brain's cortex. They were all there when you were born. The theory right now is that you do not grow new brain cells. You have x amount... More > at birth and that's it. Every neuron is capable of sprouting up to 20,000 dendrites if they are nourished properly and stimulated. In addition to neurons, we each have up to 900 billion glial cells which develop myelin, the sheathing that wraps around neuron axons. Axons are the nerve pathways that send messages from neuron to neuron. We grow new brain cells in the cerebellum, the lobe in the back of the brain that is responsible for motion, moving our bodies and muscle control. The neurons, glial cells and new brain cells in the cerebellum all depend on what we feed our bodies with. If the pregnant mother is undernourished and further damages her body by taking drugs, smoking, drinking alcohol, etc., the baby will not be born with the normal expected 100 billion neurons.< Less
The "People Power" Education Superbook: Book 12. Alternative Education/ Alternative Schools By Tony Kelbrat
eBook (ePub): $3.00
Unschooling or learner-centered education is not good for attaining grade school standards. I think this system works best for naturally creative-gifted kids who have mastered the 3 r's somewhat by... More > grade 7. If they got grade 7 math, reading and writing down and they're self-motivated, let them go. See where their genius takes them. Only a few children are intrinsically motivated enough to control their own education without degenerating into wanting to be a pop star or beauty contest queen. Unschooling is good for naturally intelligent kids whose families have some money and their parents, other relatives or paid caretakers/ tutors have time to guide them along but many kids are not naturally curious beyond what they're brainwashed by on TV and many are poor as well. They can't study archeology on a whim because it would cost money for books, tools, etc.< Less

The “People Power” Education Superbook: Book 9. Library Guide (Use a Library, World Library Websites) By Tony Kelbrat
eBook (ePub): $3.30
I was always a library guy. When I was a kid, I used to walk to the library with my friend Peggy McGraw. That was like 1969. I guess not many other guys were into libraries. I was athletic and... More > normal. I wasn’t a nerd. I was so interested in life that I loved to read about inventors, fairy tales, electricity and all kinds of stuff. It was a part of my nature. I believe it’s normal to be curious, intellectual and creative. I love libraries and librarians. They’re some of the best people on the planet when you stop and think about it. The entire profession is to help people. Why did I write this book? I believe in education. This book is my tribute to libraries. It’s a library structure-framework book. The thing about most libraries is that they have some free information on their websites like local job resources but you still need a card to use their databases or borrow a book. Nowadays they're always busy because they got computers that people come into use.< Less
