I'm getting really worried about my children's education at this point, I can only do so much from home while they are here. This has been 3 straight years that at some point during the winter months we have has so many snow days. I'm a huge fan of consistency is the key to education.
Although I am highly dependent on the buses, I want my kids to be safe and I've had so much fun with them home. But at what point will educators see that this is not working? I just wonder if anyone has thought of having a nontraditional calender school year? I'm sure most will not understand, but vacations and running lose in the summer time is fun, but what about the fundamentals of education.
I've allotted 2 hours of school time work for them everyday, but along with not being a proficient in math and spelling lol in some things I'm lost. Not only that but alot of their therapy is set up to be done at school, so they don't have to miss class. I'm kinda getting really worried.
