It’s a tough call - open the schools and (thankfully) we won’t have to deal with this generation of America-haters (sometimes called ‘teachers’). But then they’ll be replaced, with no benefit to the country.
So, my vote is to KEEP THEM CLOSED, since that means they are under surveillence by parents during remote ‘instruction’ (or at least under the threat of such).
Kids are the VECTOR.
Normally they have very mild symptoms, if any.
So they are potentially the “super spreaders” which is why “guidance” was for them to stay away from their grandparents.
Sorry about the 6 week old but that is a total outlier.
Not opening schools is part of the liberal plan to crash the economy. If schools don’t open then it is difficult for corporate employees to return to work when they have kids at home.
“If you are obese or have other co-morbidity, pulmonary , heart etc stay home”
That sounds like most teachers.
More than a 3rd of teachers in NV are over 50 years of age.
Unerstand, they are getting paid to NOT work.
Just got my Maryland Howard county property tax bill.
Close to $7,000
To pay for teachers who don’t have to teach(work)
Great if you can get it which we cant
I don’t yet know the plans of the school I retired from and still sub at. The ones at risk are likely the teachers, not the kids. One had a heart transplant, at least three are recovering cancer patients and I think two are still undergoing treatment for cancer.
No work. No pay. Abolish public education.
“I teach at an alternative school; one that is notorious for having kids sent to school sick because the parents dont want them at home (or worse).”
I knew a woman who was a clinical pediatric social worker - she caught more bugs than anyone else I knew in the medical fields.
“I know lots of people that will be forced to quit their jobs if their children are home”
Our School just proposed a bunch of new buses, and a huge increase to their budget. The idiot citizens passed it.
Now what are they gong to do with all of that?
No workee no paycheck would get them back real fast.
Cut their funding, Mr. President. And don’t even worry about whether you have the authority to do so or not. Obama and the Supreme Court have already determined that presidents can make their own law at will.
Leave the high school Ag teachers alone.
The teachers w/o kids are more than happy not be in school all day.
The answer is obvious.
Just put a BLM poster in their hands and hold protest classes outside.
I worked in one of those schools, by the way.
...as a substitute teacher.
My daughter teaches high school.
The problem they had was too many students without internet access.
So they made themselves available on the intenet for question and answer sessions.
And they offered assignments to make up low grades.
But they basically locked in the grades as they were at the time of the shutdown. They didn’t pursue teaching additional material because of the student access problem.
What organization in the world allows subordinates waaaaay down the ranks to defy the wishes of the chief executive? Time to let these a$$holes and their union know the President answers to the voters, not to them. If Trump put them all in a bus and pushed it off a cliff, I’d cheer.
