February 21, 2019 Children

We have four children in third grade (“P.3”), all ranked head to head against the others – all with really interesting academic performance. At the end of 2018, they ranked 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th.

None are at the top of the class, but each has unusually strong grades in specific areas.  It is still too early in their education to be sure any or all will continue to have these quirky but interesting academic results.

In the second grade, the grading is still pretty easy. 

This is what we know.  Sincere ranked 8th in her class at the end of 2018. The teachers say she is very inquisitive.

Both her parents are alive, and both illiterate.  The mother does house work to be able to buy food for the four children. 

The father has developed serious health complications and can no longer do hard labor – and that is the only work available without training or literacy.  He now sits at home, worrying about the future of his children.
