To home-school their kids is a choice for all who wish to do so.Certainly, in my own case, I would have preferred home-schooling, but my mother was already working two jobs.

The kids stay home a lot and not much interaction with other kids there age. There are many private schools here and when you are in K-5 you are doing basic adding and subtracting. I often wonder, what level her kids are really on. I feel sorry for them, I really do. Your post is comical and I needed a good laugh!

I think home schooling would have been fun, but I don't think it was around in the 70's. Having lots of siblings would make it fun too.

I was so shocked after she told me this. I thought, "poor kids"! I have never heard of learning through 80% of play before, have you?
I think home schooling can be for most people, but it's the parents responsibility to make sure it's done properly. You know as well as I do, that this mother had to take tests when she was in school. It makes no sense to me.:)
I heard that. Back in the one room school house days, they had to take tests!!!:) They did on "Little House on the Prairie" anyway and you know if it's on tv, it can't be a lie!!!:)

Well this time you are right but for the wrong reason. They let the young energized teachers go TO PREVENT THEM FROM GETTING TENURE . Why? To keep the payroll down ,of course.
Also there is a misconception that a tenured teacher cannot be fired in NC. FALSE. There are many written reasons that tenured teachers can be fired. One of them is failing to meet performance standards. The only difference is that tenured teachers must be told the reason they were fired. Un tenured teachers in NC can be fired for ANY reason at any time without notice.

<quoted text>Teachers in NC aren't either but when budget cuts are instituted, they'll keep the under performing teachers because they have tenure and let go the new, young, energized teachers because they don't. In most private businesses today, seniority means nothing until its vacation time, everything else is performance based.

Actually, kids are learning a lot more than addition and subtraction at those early ages in govt schools. For example, kids at that age are learning to redistribute the wealth. When the teacher ask the children to bring in supplies for the classroom but DO NOT write their names on those supplies, it's because they're teaching the children of the parents who can afford the supplies to bring them in and provide for the ones who can't afford them, and they're teaching the ones who can't afford them to rely on someone else to provide for them. Either way they're learning at an early age to be good little liberals.

Yes, Exactly. That is why there are so many Conservative Republicans in the higher levels of the colleges and universities in this country, basically due to the high academic and intelligence of the great Republican minds.

The only reason they are learning this is because the Republican NC Legislature took the supply money for schools from the budget and this is the only way the elementary schools can function with needed supplies. Republicans needed the money to boost the salaries of their Adminstrators on the State level. Steal from the kids and give to the LIFERS (Lazy inefficient f**kers expecting retirement.) Didn't Thom Tillis' staff get a big raise?

Germany Marks 80th Anniversary of Hitler's Rise to Power"Human rights don't assert themselves. Freedom doesn't preserve itself all alone and democracy doesn't succeed by itself," Merkel said.

"That must be a constant warning for us, Germans," she added, referring to Hitler's arrival at the chancellery.

The exhibition, "Berlin 1933. On the Path to Dictatorship", is built on the site of the former headquarters of the Gestapo, the secret police of the Nazi regime.

Just prior to the anniversary and in light of International Holocaust Memorial Day, Merkel said in her weekly podcast that Germany had "an everlasting responsibility for the crimes of National Socialism, for the victims of World War II, and above all, for the Holocaust".

"We're facing our history, we're not hiding anything, we're not repressing anything. We must confront this to make sure we are a good and trustworthy partner in the future, as we already are today, thankfully," Merkel said..israelnationalnews.com/N ews/News.aspx/164739#.UQmFY_LL J_Y

Obama Announces New Humanitarian Aid for the Syrian People
U.S. President Barack Obama announces an extra $155 million dollars to aid refugees fleeing the Syrian civil war."I want to speak directly to the people of Syria," Obama said, addressing the Syrian people in a YouTube video.

"This new aid will mean more warm clothing for children and medicine for the elderly, flour and wheat for your families and blankets, boots and stoves for those huddled in damaged buildings," Obama said.

"It will mean health care for victims of sexual violence and field hospitals for the wounded. Even as we work to end the violence against you, this aid will help address some of the immediate needs you face each day."

To keep the payroll down? Don't the teachers with tenure make more than those who have little to none? Aren't the benefits for a tenured teacher higher than those who have little to none? Who pays for these salaries and benefits...the taxpayers, so shouldn't the taxpayers have a voice when it comes to who stays and who goes?
The problem with your statement, "there are many written reasons" is the word written. Just because its protocol doesn't mean it's followed. I could name a couple of govt school teachers who meet one, if not several, of these reasons but are still teaching today.

Right. And maybe she will teach them that distributive properties means redistribution of wealth, that women can't get pregnant as a result of a "legitimate" rape and that those committing acts of terrorism are not terrorist but Easter bunnies.

OK, genius. Lets see if we can figure this out. As older teachers with tenure retire, filling their jobs with non tenured , inexperienced teachers at the bottom of the pay scale saves on payroll. Add in approximately 10% yearly turnover and it isnt long before you have all non tenured teachers if you dismiss all those without tenure before they qualify..
You really are republikan arent you.

I have no poroblem with vouchers. Vouchers help ignroant republikans send their under performing reprobate children to private political schools where teachers, having no tenure, can be fired for not inflating little Johnny's grades to please his cash paying mammy. This allows public schools to teach in an improved atmosphere without the disruptive brats and their ignorant parents demanding special treatment .
Some very few children benefit from home schooling. For most, sadly, it is an exercise in the blind leading the blind.

TSF, I'm no "snoot" or other names that are thrown around at people who decide that maybe "government" everything isn't always the best answer to every problem. I'll assure you again, I pay my taxes and darn plenty and just finished paying our estimates on 01/15, so don't preach to me about lowering the tax rate. I paid taxes for public schools and also I paid private school tuition for my child. You can make off the cuff remarks alluding to the fact that Republicans are ignorant, but this ignorant Republican sent her child to a private school and she's now doing her surgical clinicals. She'll probably have children one day and increase the Republican base, but if they work their butts off like she has, they'll at least be contributing members of society not sponges. I've never had a problem with my tax dollars being spent on a voucher system to help children of all races and socio-economic backgrounds receive more intensive and better quality of education. Do you have a problem with the voucher system? Private schools don't have to play the tenure game that public schools do. If teachers in a private school fail to produce students a cut above of going to school free they're not kept on until they're in they're in their 70's because they have tenure, they're shown the door. I don't have a problem with home schooling. As I have stated before and I'm always posted back, "the examples you give are the exception, not the rule for home schooled children." I'd still put a home schooled child up against a public school educated child even if their parents might be "ignorant". Looks to me the public school teachers can't motivate the children to learn, are allowed no control over their classrooms, and look at the list Arnold gave of what he tries to do just to get a kid to school and the parents motivated and they still don't come to school, thus they'll be ignorant just like their parents that don't care. I don't blame Arnold for this Lord knows he's paid his dues, but you blame the Republicans for at least trying a different approach by calling them "ignorant." At least a home schooled child's parents care enough to take the time and attention to attempt to educate their children. Does that make them "ignorant", sounds like they're pretty smart to me, because they've learned the first lesson, you can't teach a child if they're nowhere to be found.

<quoted text>
If she uses a worksheet on distributive properties that is titled, Distribute the Wealth, and has a picture of a wealthy little white girl throwing around cash from her bag of money, then yes, she's teaching the Commucrats agenda. If she's teaching that an act of war isn't committed by terrorist but rather people protesting a YouTube video, then yes, she's teaching the Commucrats agenda.
