This home schoom mom has a little fun at the expense of the politicians in Wisconsin. Here is here article.
Do home schooling families really dsave the taxpayers $25 million in Wiscon? That is the estimate of a home school association. I don't really know.
This home school mom has a little fun with the union.
Clearly, the answer to the Wisconsin budget crisis (and perhaps California's as well) is to increase the number of children who are homeschooled. The teachers in Wisconsin seem to agree with that notion, as so many of them have left their classrooms lately that classes all over the state end up being canceled.
The kids who have been losked out of school are getting a lesson in democracy, she says.
What rights of collective bargaining does she have?
Her kids gang up on her. They want better non-working conditions: more class breaks, more movies.
She also has to deal with management: her husband.
My main beef, of course, is working hours. School is always in session, and my students are always with me. Management reminds me that our actual hands-on book time is less than what it might be in a traditional school. Score one for management. I am also reminded that I get to go on field trips at my discretion. I can choose who goes and who stays, too. Another plus, duly noted.
Class size is another sticking point I'd encounter as a public employee in contract negotiations. I've got a great plan in that regard, one I don't want to give up. With only five kids currently of school age, classroom management is a breeze.
I might be inclined to discuss improving my wages if I actually had any. I guess you could say I'm on a delayed compensation plan: My pay can't be measured in terms of a bank account.
Her retirement plan is telling her kids they must support her in her old age.
She says that at least she has tenure.
