This is great! The kids are off this week for spring break - like they haven't had enough time off from school! We know that ALL kids are well behind what they should be learning based on many months of no school during COVID and remote learning for much of this year!
And instead of our school system saying - let's get as much learning in this school year before it ends so that they will be less behind next year - the school system gives teachers the time off! This is insane and only goes to show why teachers unions MUST be eliminated from the education system of our children.
I also fault our teachers because they realize how far behind their students are and yet they could not care less otherwise they would fight their union to get back to school this week. The teachers union wins, the teachers win by being out this week - yet the only group that loses are the students! And yet the union and the teachers tell us constantly that they sincerely care about the education of our children - these are truly hollow words given that they had to be compelled to go back to classroom teaching and many school system across America are still not in school!
Our school system has only been back to full time in school learning for a brief time and only in the lower grades. Even though CDC and most medical experts have told them that children are NOT spreaders of COVID and that only compromised older adults are susceptible to more serious COVID systems. Yet the unions and teachers have fought against going back into schools - contrary to science and contrary scientific data.
We now know from our COVID experience that the unions and teachers are only looking out after themselves to see how they can manipulate the system for their own benefit rather than the benefit of the children.
What a sad state of affairs in our education system- we should all fight for more charter schools and support existing religious schools - it is the only way to show our education system that they have failed our kids.
John is somehow of the opinion that teachers haven't been working during COVID. His ignorance is staggering. Online and/or hybrid learning takes far MORE effort than teaching in person, not less! For the teachers who have been working so hard during the pandemic, this is just so demeaning and maddening to read.
Because hypocrites have made plans to go on vacation trips to red states like Florida where it is fun even though they walk around here with masks on telling us to stay home while updating their fakebook profile pics with the stupid "I got Vaccinated" frame.
