I think everyone that shared their feelings about home schooling also made it clear that each individual family has the right to choose what they do with their kids education wise. Most of the teachers in this district make learning a positive experience for our kids, they don't quit because things don't seem to go their way. Yes, we also have a few slugs like I percieve that guy to be & hopefully they will quit also & make room for a teacher that's able to stay within the guidelines while still motivating their students.
Did you watch the video? He tried to make his case in front of the school committee, they wouldn't let him speak.
15 years teaching and when disallowed from doing something he knew worked, he went someplace where they wanted his skills makes him a quitter?
Should he die on that hill?
