This couple, high school sweet hearts, with 10 kids should be put in
charge of our education system. Dump the system and start over with
what ever methods they are using.
Spoiler alert, 7 of their 10 kids were in college by age 12.
I think the key issue is that the parents are doing what a majority of
parents are not doing, taking an active role in their children's
education way beyond simply sitting back and complaining.
And helping develop the kids interests instead of being a baby sitter
and throttling back to the lowest common denominator.
We are getting out of our teachers what we are paying them.
Oh, no. How dare they keep their children out of the public school
system? If their methods begin to spread and grow it could mean the
beginning of the collapse of the teacher's union, the unemployment of
the school board members that squander inflated school budgets every
year and the realization that many at the Department of Education are
no longer needed. Maybe even the realization that the Department of
Education itself isn't needed.
Remember, it's for the children.
I certainly wouldn't put them in charge of Zero Population Growth :-).
And to quote them: "We believe in a Christian worldview and creation. We
believe that there is scientific evidence that supports intelligent
So I doubt any of those kids are going into evolutionary genetics :-).
Yes, the public schools leave a lot to be desired. But every time I see
"home schooled" I think of the Kansas school board and their elimination
of evolution from the curriculum.
How "educated" is someone who lets their beliefs override scientific
theories backed up by evidence?
Now where did I put that flameproof suit ???
Well you have a point but who is to say what the ideal number would be
and would you want someone telling you how many children to have.
Is that a field, with concern to humans?
I am not a fan of the home schooled idea but it beats the heck out of
what we have now. As far as the elimination of evolution from the
curriculum, perhaps they don't see the need for it, like sports,
religion, arts, common sense.
Like the people that believe that global warming is controllable?
C'mon, Lew. Repetition of the same headline, none of which upon examination
provide a single example of your statement confirming an actual "rewrite of
early US history", does not constitute a "Cite" by any definition of the
Although asking a liberal to provide facts instead of feelings might be a
bit too much to ask, you did make the statement, so _you_ provide an actual
example of this supposed "rewrite of early US history", and not some list
of search engine term results, or your statement will stand as what it
appears to be: partisan twaddle.
The sorry state of public education is much deeper than the sorry spectacle
of partisan, and religious, politics in matters regarding textbooks in
almost all states, but it is indeed a contributing factor.
That said, the terminology, like the word "adopt", always used by those
with an agenda, suggests that a book is mandated for use, instead of being
"approved for local option".
You see this in screaming headlines like "Texas Adopts "Fearson's Biology"
For Use In High Schools", while the reality is that this (POS, in my
opinion) book is merely included on a list of biology books "approved" for
"local option" by those backward districts who chose to do so (it's a free,
if stupid, country, right?) ... far different reality than what those who
write the headlines want you to believe.
Most don't have 30 years experience, sure. However, six-figure
teacher's salaries do exist.
Atlantic City High School <name deleted> 27 years $103,816 Math
Non-Elementary teaches 5 classes
That was just a random sample.
Might want to check your data.
Top management often get $200K-$500K; however vested class
room teachers are usually well below the $100K level.
Even had a super in SoCal who had a 7 digit contract which
generated some interesting dialog when it surfaced.

I assume you are including sports coaches in that group. Should apply
to college professors too. The newspaper had a listing of UCONN
salaries and some consultant saying they should get an additional 15% to
remain competitive with other schools. Some administrators were well
