#64: A Teacher’s Insight at How Funding Affects the Classroom, Who is Really Benefitting, and Why She Left Teaching to Homeschool

Embark on a transformative journey through the world of education with me, Cheryl, as I host a compelling discussion with Kiri Jorgensen, a former public school teacher turned homeschooling enthusiast. Kiri shares her eye-opening experiences and the pivotal moments that led her from the front of a traditional classroom to the heart of her own home's learning environment. We unpack the challenges posed by the public education system, from the limitations of Common Core to the critical need for individualized student attention – a stark contrast to the one-size-fits-all approach that's become all too common.

Our dialogue takes a turn toward the perplexing world of public school funding, where I draw from my government background to reveal the bureaucratic pitfalls that leave teachers and students wanting. We critique the structure that often props up administration at the expense of classroom resources, and touch upon books like the Tuttle Twins series, highlighting their role in guiding our youth with literature that resonates with family values. It's a conversation that brings to light the struggles and the paradoxes faced by educators and families alike, questioning whether the current system truly serves our children's best interests.
