There's been a lot of debate about certification for homeschooling parents but one group that hasn't been heard from, at least in any organized way, is the group of homeschooling parents who are or have been professional teachers. The media hasn't asked question of this group. The CTA certainly hasn't. And there's been no collective response from those of us who had education degrees.
What if the teachers among us wrote some posts about how their degrees and teaching experience has been helpful, harmful or not an issue at all? What if the posts were collected by someone (just a meme?a wiki page? a blog?) so that when the question of qualifications comes up we have a resource to point people towards? It seems to me that the experiences of those of us who are teachers is absolutely key to the discussion.
I think this is important. Anyone interested in heading this up? Or at least in writing about their experiences and linking back here?
