It pays everyone from the particular school from janitors to principals a bonus, no matter if that teacher JUST got to that school and influenced the outcome scores or not.. A brand new teacher that doesn't know what they are doing (not that all new teachers are bad, just an example) could get a bonus in a school where the kids come from wealthy families while teachers that work their butts off in a school where the primary language is not English for example doesn't get it. The program is not equitable because of this discrepancy (problems with NCLB really rather than problems with the State), so when it was awarded in the past, the staff refused it and sent it back. EVERY staff member in that school. Even the custodians and food servers.- obviously the program doesn't work when teachers refuse money.

So although I am open to getting more money to teachers (cough, cough), it has to be done the right way, and the incentive money was just sitting there.. I would MUCH rather it go to kids who need health insurance.

I suspect the reasoning is that if there is too much ice & snow for school age kids to get to school. Then staff, and little kids couldn't safely get their either. My daycare is infant to pre-school so there isn't an issue of not having a place to go if schools aren't open - mom or dad just has to make other arrangements, like staying home.

My work is getting clobbered by the weather though this week. On Monday, the pipes froze in my office building causing sewage to back up into the 1st floor bathroom and out into the hallway. So, no potties for the building. Makes an work day interesting - hold the coffee. Then I took off Thursday to stay home with DS.

But, it wasn't just the wealthy schools that got the bonus. It was also received by Title 1. It was a 3 Tier system. Or, was it 2? Geez, can't recall that far back. lol

Seriously, I'd like to see the end of teacher tenure, then have third-party evaluations and teacher pay incentives on an individual scale (ie, not the whole school, but just the individual teacher). Tenure is such a flawed system because
experience does not always = competence
newness does not always = incompetence
At least that's my perspective as a former teacher/wife of a teacher/daughter of a teacher/granddaughter of teachers. I've been watching this insanity for years and it frustrates me to no end.

NCLB may have been created with good intentions, but it's a crummy piece of legislation--every teacher I know thinks so.

Retirement is a three tier system. That is different than this program. The schools that met all the NCLB requirements got the bonus- my point is that that tends to be the schools with wealthier kids. Therefore, the system is flawed, and divisive. Even the teachers unions said so.

Right but I wasn't really asking about snow/cold/ice days. Sorry, I didn't make that clear. I am more curious about teachers' inservice days and such that the kids are off. Parents wouldn't be off then.

No, the amount of $ paid out by the bonus was different. There were either 2 or 3 different amounts of $ paid to each teacher depending on the SBA results from their school. I know 1 amount was $1000. But, it's not just the wealthy schools. Yeah, the Union was upset but I think that an incentive program is a good idea. Maybe not in this particular format, though. I still think it's pretty cool that a little Spenard school did as well as a wealthy neighborhood school. Interesting at the least!

My husband only earns $2000 a month, so his salary isn't allowing me to stay home. If I worked, we'd be putting out more in childcare than I was bringing home.


I've never heard of that book, but I will have to look into it. It sounds interesting.

EW!

And how uncomfortable!


And here's a link to another thread I started about a tree falling on our trailer house.

I also want to add that I was shocked watching the news regarding the flooding in Anchorage. One culvert?!?! for the entire city?

Seriously, I thought the road maintenance was one of the worst things I've seen in this city since I moved here. But no proper drainage? This city seems miles behind it's development here.

Okay. My center is open on those days. Just closed on some federal holidays & 2 days for Thanksgiving & 2 for Christmas.

On in-service days & in the summer they take "alumnae" kids. These are kids who attended when they were younger or have younger siblings enrolled. On days they can't go to school, they come to the center and usually serve as helpers or special play-mates. Over winter break, the helper in my son's room eas a 7th grader "erin." My son cried every day when her mom came to pick up her and her4 y.o. little brother. (incidentally, they aren't actually put to work. But most help play, read & feed the little ones.)

Ahhhh, thanks for the further information. What a wonderful idea to put the "big kids" to "work". It's good for the bigs, and good for the littles.

Can't remember if I mentioned this earlier, but I have a Nourishing Traditions class in my home in Willow this Saturday at 1:30 pm.
PM me if you want to come and I can give you directions.
The class is free, and will cover the first 3rd of Sally Fallon's DVD on Traditional Foods.

What earthquake?

I must have been sleeping heavy.

Many of you know how much I needed a good sleep last night.

Ha ha. I just clicked on the link. 9:09 am...

I think I actually woke up momentarily around that time and went back to sleep.

Maybe that was when Abigail crawled into bed with me from her mattress on the floor next to our bed (her very first time ever sleeping all night down there! I read her to sleep and waited until she was snoring before leaving her side).

I'll bet she felt it and it woke her up and that was why she climbed in bed with me.

I think we all three slept until nearly 11 AM though.

It was pretty strong at our house, but short with no aftershocks. I am SO glad there was no tsunami .. that I think was a clear possibility with that one..

I didn't see any damage reported.. art house/s in Homer was very concerned that they would find broken glass in their shops, but only one metal object was found on the floor (not breakable).. they said that pieces had been moved around a bit, but none apparently got close enough to an edge to fall over/off..

hey, relax, if you are pg (and here's hoping!) stress is NOT going to make you feel better (nor baby)..

What did women do about this a couple of hundred years ago? I guess they just waited 9 months until the baby showed up?

yeah, I know.
Either AF will come or it wont...and if it does, that's an answer, and if it doesn't...well, I've realized that by a week from now I should be feeling sick so that should be an answer as well, right?
