This gurl is more than a pair of sultry, swinging hips!
Shakira, an advocate of investing in Latino education, got her chance to to speak with government officials on the issue during a meeting of the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics Commission.
That platform also gave her the opportunity to plead her case to millions of Americans on behalf of the fastest-growing group of Americans who have more children living in poverty than ANY OTHER ethnic group.
In an editorial authored by the Colombian pop star on the White House blog, Shakira argues "the only road out of poverty is education."
You've gotta take care of them until they're at least age 18. You might as well give them the best education they can possibly get.
Dr. Kim Har, director of childhood education at Aristotle Circle, a national company offering expertise in getting children into the best schools, has some advice on whether or not tutoring toddlers is a good idea.
Is tutoring 3- to 6-year-olds beneficial or a waste of time and money?
Parents looking to get their preschoolers into the most competitive schools often wondering if hiring a tutor is worth the time and money. Most children ages 3 through 6 can most definitely benefit from being tutored. Dr. Har says, "The most competitive schools use test scores as a cut-off requirement and children without very high scores will not be considered. Don’t leave your eligibility for the best schools to chance."
There you go! You really can't start 'em too young, can you?? If you want to get your kids into the best schools, you better start NOW.

The biyatch has never been a people person, even when she was a widdle person.
In a new interview, Kristen Stewart confesses that she hasn't changed that much since she was a kiddie, citing being "overly indignant" when she couldn't be her less than bubbly self, even in kindergarten. She also admits that she never had too many friends in school, as she was way more "mature" than any of her peers:
"I couldn't relate to kids my own age. I have felt that I should have been an adult since I was aged about 5. I remember when I turned 18, everyone asked me if I felt more mature, but I felt the same as I always did."
Really? Does that also mean you always felt indifferently constipated over the success you've garnered in your life?
Tiger Woods' kindergarten teacher is speaking out at a news conference in none other than Gloria Allred's office to address an interview Tiger gave back in 2005 when he said:
"I became aware of my racial identity on my first day of school, on my first day of kindergarten. A group of sixth graders tied me to a tree, spray-painted the word 'ni**er' on me, and threw rocks at me. That was my first day of school. And the teacher really didn't do much of anything."
The teacher is going to reveal whether or not the story is true as well as a photo of Tiger from his kindergarten days. She's also planning to share her thoughts on all of his alleged mistresses.
Sounds like someone needs to get a life — including Gloria!
