Teachers AND Parents See Eye-to-Eye on Opening School: Don’t Do It!

According to the survey recently conducted by NPR, there is a nearly complete alignment between parents on the question of whether or not schools should open: neither group wants to see it happen given the current set of circumstances. So… which group will incur the wrath of the President and the Murdoch branch of the media? Inevitably the headlines on the pushback will make this a union vs. “the economy” issue and will claim that the teachers fear of contracting COVID is baseless. The POTUS has already tweeted once that the teachers are doing this to ruin the economy so he will be defeated. Neither he nor his supporters or the GOP seems willing to accept that PARENTS, who will bear the brunt of schools remain shuttered, are equally concerned about the risk associated with reopening schools too soon.

I hope that sane minds and level heads will prevail and we will quickly decide to close schools through the end of the calendar year and focus the scarce time that remains on making remote learning more successful in September.
