Teacher’s Scheduling Summer Babies

Marketplace ran an interesting piece on one of the lesser-known sacrifices that many teachers make: scheduling their pregnancies around the school year – http://www.marketplace.org/topics/life/many-teachers-schedule-summer-babies.  Listen to the full story to hear the passionate teachers willing to rearrange their personal lives to fit their profession.  While this sacrifice is noble, teachers should keep in mind that child birth and newborn-bonding time are covered by the Family Medical Leave Act.  For more information check out my video on FMLA leave or some of my varied posts on FMLA leave.
