I was watching the news at Noon today they are cutting more schools next year again.. For the school year 2010/11.. They are looking at laying off more teachers and closing another school or two here in WI.. I am so glad we home school our girls.. Its not here in Green Bay this happening but you just never know when its going to be our turn here in town..
That means bigger classroom sizes and more drop outs because the kids arent going to understand what is going so instead of asking for help they are going to get fustrated with the system and walk out and not go back.. This is my opinion here... But it hurts to hear about it..
I grew up in a small town in MN and we had up to 30 kids in a class. That was tough sometimes.. I didnt understand alot of what was going on to be honest with you. I barely graduated.. I sort of gave up my senior year of school.. I decided running with my friends was more important than doing home work..
We had to do a 15-30 page report before we could graduate with English and I flopped taht one.. I got a D- on mine if i remember right.. So how do these kids that are used to smaller classes going to feel next year when they have 30-40 kids in a class. A new school because the old one had to shut down.. I dont get it..
SME you might remember that dang report we had to do for the English Teacher back home.. I almost slipped on where it was... Just fustrating for me since my parents were no help with home work and my friends had there own problems.. I couldnt stay late at school half the time.. I had no way home.. I didnt have my drivers liscense and I had no car, no parents that cared enough to pick me up from school...
But anyway I am hoping these kids here in WI have it better than I did. I look at them and wonder why they need 30 million dollars to run a school.. How is closing a school they obviously need going to help them because they will just have to pack more kids into another school and give that school that much more money to deal with..
I cant understand it.. I am angry inside and really just glad we are home schooling our girls.. Bri fights with me on loads of things but she is learning slowly.. Kora still hates math but she is trying.. Its not like if they were in a school setting.. Anyway I am off but just thought i would mention this.. Hope you all have a wonderful night... I will be around tomorrow before I go to work.. I only work three hours tomorrow..
Its about me and my family. Mainly me and the girls. I may twitter or tweet alot but its mostly thoughts and going ons here at home and thoughts about what we might be doing on weekend or our adventures. Sit down and Enjoy what you are reading.
