Educational Soup is a column written to empower and educate students and parents on issues or subject areas related to education. Insuring our children receive the support they need not only from the educational institution, but the parent as well, is a mixture of various components, just like a bowl of hot chicken noodle soup. Knowing the components necessary for academic success is the first step. Learning each component inside and out is the second step. So, put on your most comfy attire, sit back, relax, and enjoy the nourishment and fulfillment of a warm and hearty bowl of Educational Soup.
