Preaching, not practicing?

Regarding the news story “Pa. proposal pushes for time off to assist children's educations” (Sept. 17 and TribLIVE.com), let me get this straight: Cindy Duch, who is paid to be the director of parent involvement at the Parent Education & Advocacy Leadership Center, and the center are lobbying for passage of legislation that would require Pennsylvania employers to give employees paid time off to be involved in their children's education.

At the same time, she complains that as a parent herself, she is losing time and pay to be involved in her own child's education.

If having time off with pay to be involved in a child's education is so important, why isn't her employer, which is lobbying for the state to mandate paid time off, taking a leadership position and voluntarily giving her the time off with pay?

No one paid me to fulfill my parental responsibilities, nor did I expect it.
