You’re newsletter introductory paragraph reminds me of my relative’s recent experience. She’s a public school teacher in California; due to a recent move she’s been working as a long-term substitute. When the regular teacher returned from maternity leave, my sister stayed on for a few days to help with the transition. She was dismayed to watch the teacher make mistakes about which hands are which on an analog clock and which side is which of the “greater than/less than sign.”
Homeschooling parents should remember that classroom teachers are people too and make plenty of mistakes. The Progressive movement in education has sold our society the lie that if someone has a government certificate, they have somehow “progressed” beyond the rest of us. It just isn’t so.

I agree! I used to tell people I was "thinking for two." That must be difficult to be in a classroom full of people and say something you ordinarily wouldn't say. But I guess the message is this: don't beat yourself up. LOL!
haha.....I think that poor returning teacher still had pregnancy brain! I feel sorry for her, I remember what that was like!
There have been multiple felony charges, including bribery and money laundering. The very famous Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin were accused, but so were many other wealthy parents.
