      Well, it’s Monday again.  I’m closer to working, but still not there yet.

      Went to coffee and had a good laugh.  The Elders were debating politics.  We are a strong republican town with one very vocal democrat, so it always gets wild.  Today they were debating teacher tenure and bonuses.  The air was positively orange with sparks when I walked in.  

      I’m sitting here listening to the puppies and youngest daughter snore.  the girls have no electricity at there house.  Gracie spent the weekend partying and then had to work graveyard last night.  She was whining about 30 hours with no sleep.  I have no sympathy for self inflicted misery.

      How’s your Monday?

        • Hello Tulip,

          Teacher tenure and bonuses...my interest has been peaked.  My heart
          will always be there.  What was the outcome of the debate?

          I’m having a great day. I need to prepare some mailings and pick up a few gifts this week. A little housecleaning is on the agenda today.

        • Well, except for banker Dave, all were in agreement that tenure is a BAD BAD thing because it doesn’t enable a school system to get rid of the really bad teachers (and Lord knows we‘re stuck with a lot of not good ones in our area)

          Most were in favor of bonuses as a reward for good teachers—in theory.  In actual practice, the idea has so many flaws of course.

          My own personal opinion is that the public school system is broken beyond redemption.

           If I had my kids to raise all over again, I would Never Ever have sent them to public school.  I would have homeschooled them all.  Not that home schooling is the answer for everyone, and it certainly won’t help fix all the things broken in public schools.

        • Tulip, I tried 4 times to respond.  Each time the computer lost my response. I’ll just say, GREAT DEBATE. Teachers must do their job. Bonuses should come with exemplary work. Tenure =doing your job on a daily basis! It shouldn’t be based on longevity.  That’s the way I did my job as a teacher for 32 years...and I sleep well every nite!happy

          Hi Neicy and MaryAnne, glad your workday went well. Relax and enjoy your evening!
