Shotgun of Articles

If you have the time to read some, or at least one of these, I highly suggest you take the time to. Who knows, perhaps it will inspire you to write your second (or first) blog post for this week.

First off, we have a scary growing trend of parents taking out loans in order to send their children to either private schools. For Kindergarten.

Bullying is still a HUGE issue, despite how many different approaches we've tried to take in order to prevent it, and as such needs more attention then we give it credit for, which is a lot.

Disturbing news in the sexual harassment front, with up to 10% of students having the potential to have been sexually abused by their instructors, which to me is just sickening.

The rant I had gone on earlier this semester about the teacher fired for her Facebook comments about drowning kids now has her job back, as her firing was overturned. I'm relatively speechless.

Finally, this article is just unbelievable. I don't really know how a teacher could create these kinds of math problems for small children to have to complete. I'm a college student and I don't feel comfortable with #15 and 20. It's almost like he wanted to be fired at this point. It's also from a homeschooling site.


  1. Interesting. Thanks for posting these

  2. I am still in shock regarding those math problems. I just can't imagine what would propel someone to write something like that.

    Thanks for sharing that post as well as the others. I think it's important to dialogue about what's happening in classrooms across the nation.
