    ,,,

    Dear English Teachers,
    there are some rules about commas and i have written some examples below..but especially when i am writing an essay i have some difficulties putting a comma on right places..would you please explain some of the main rules of comma places...
    thanks in advance

    The children of today who, like Maria, dream of becoming teachers have a lot to look forward to.

    Culture is activity of thought, and receptiveness to beauty and humane feelings.

    In the history of education, the most striking phenomenon is that schools of learning, which at one epoch are alive with a ferment of genius, in a succeeding generation exhibit merely pedantry and routine.

    I would only keep the first comma.
