My nephew was told to leave his medical school.. In Grenada. They do not have any Covid-19 cases on the island…
Bet all those colleges are still planning on keeping all the students tuition and other fees for housing, meals, etc…..
Methinks the students have legal standing for some class action lawsuits for refunds – WITH DAMAGES!
BTW does anyone know anything about this phrase I’ve heard college administrators use “Denial of Access.”
It was used in the context of not allowing students in after a class hour had started and they thought it was illegal.
so the dean of students, who was involved with shutting stuff down, was there partying too. but the 1200 people all hugging and shit were safe cause they used hand sanitizer…
Louisiana’s governor shut down our schools yesterday. None of us knew it was coming. The DoE was telling us to come up with a phased plan to deal with CoVID in our districts. Two hours later we were told to close down for a month. Our administration wasn’t told that was happening. I was sitting in a meeting with the school leadership developing the plan when the gov closed it down.
None of us know what is happening. There appears to be no state plan. None of us have ever done anything like this before. We all still report for work, but none of us know what we will be doing.
You better believe there is a “state plan.”
Will colleges whose administration buildings are currently being taken over by protesting students require those students to leave as well? /s
one of the colleges near us will be closing for a couple of weeks–a professor there(a neighbor)said it is looking like an extended spring break
imagine colleges/universities going to online classes for the majority of their curriculum–would the need for all the diversity/gender studies/equality studies suddenly disappear? certainly staff reductions would be in order and, due to staff reductions, less would be required of any ” administration ” staff–down-sizing/eliminating superfluous ” diversity ” staff would be an immediate consequence(and certainly welcome in the main)–fewer, if any, ” demonstrations ” for whatever bs reason–overall, a positive outcome for the entire ” education ” industry
A recent study discovered that since about 1985, every single penny of additional funding for education has
ended up in administration spending.
