Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

 I think this is a great idea to consider. Public schools could hire curriculum planners to set up home based programs and monitor and test for results. This would be a great new way to use teacher skills but with added curriculum adviser certification. Special area teachers could be used and provided decent pay but on a part time basis. This might be ideal for teachers or specialty area teachers that would prefer to work part time due to age, young families or those that may have returned to school as long as it is not a low pay cheap sloppy effort. Many people don't need full salaries and have benefits from a spouse or retirement arrangement. These people have great skills and would love such an arrangement at some points in life so they are still useful and earning decent income.

 

 Full time curriculum adviser/ monitors would select part time, as needed, but steady, specialty teachers to develop course video/audio lessons, recommend online enhancement materials, test and provide feedback or tutoring to students with the help of the full time curriculum adviser providing guidance and monitoring to all. Team teaching could even be used.  Some teachers might even be made available for person –to-person tutoring at particular locations (like at the base public school) for areas a student struggles with or seeks advanced study in. Social activities should be made available, even participating in sports or club and extracurricular activities.... within the base school or community. Some students do very well with independent but directed study. Those that have fallen behind in a traditional setting or those that love moving out ahead might find less criticism and stifled in an online virtual setting. This would be a great new innovative way to use public education for some even many students.

 

They could be counted in the school numbers and as part of the school body but services could be more individualized but monitored and verified so students are directed enough to stay on track. It should not be part of a regular classroom teacher’s added role unless a period of time is devoted to home-based students is they were in class but enrolled in their own class block. The teachers should not have to group pace for classes and also self pace for home based students without time scheduled for that or special teachers hired only for that home curriculum direction and monitoring.
