I would love to have a woman run the school board that doesn't even have enough faith in the school to send her own kids there. :tonka:

Faith in the system aside, how can you create an agenda to run/grow a public school system if you do the opposite at home? I mean, any other situation similar to this would be construed as a conflict of interest.

Not to much different than anyone in Congress or Senate that vote on public school items.
How many of their kids are in private school.

This may be a legitimate point. As a teacher I have wondered how many politicians who vote on public education have or have had children go through the public school system? Perhaps I should spend some time on Google researching this matter.

As for the Howell situation, the people I know who home school their children are kooky but they generally know a lot about education and are interested in seeing their children succeed. Maybe this elected official will bring some new ideas to the Howell public school board meetings.

Finally whether she home schools her children or not school boards spend a lot of time on issues outside of the classroom such as budget, contracts, time lines, etc.

http://www.heritage.org/Research/Education/BG1684.cfm

While only 10 percent of American students attend private schools, 41 percent of Representatives and 46 percent of Senators responded that they had sent children to private school

45 percent of House Ways and Means Committee members and 31 percent of House Education and the Workforce Committee members exercised private school choice

56 percent of Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee and 47 percent of Senate Finance Committee members exercised private school choice

29 percent of Congressional Black Caucus members and 46 percent of Congressional Hispanic Caucus members chose to send at least one child to private school.


Based solely on this one web site, the numbers who elect to send their students to private schools is actually lower than I expected. I did not research the issue just a quick Google and 1 web site.
