This is a real opportunity to establish Homeschool Pods “Instead of waiting for instructions from authorities, enterprising parents and entrepreneurial teachers are joining forces and taking initiative.”

In addition to homeschooling, some parents are forming pandemic “pods,” or home-based microschools that allow a handful of families to take turns teaching their children or pool resources to hire a teacher or college student. The Wall Street Journal reports that these pods are sprouting throughout the country, fueled by parental unrest at school reopening plans and facilitated by informal Facebook groups connecting local families.

They can absolutely say that, Give me back my tax money and I will figure it out

    Close the schools, sell the buildings, property and assets, refund the taxpayers and remove the taxes from the books.

Well then, time to divert the tax money used to pay over-paid administrators, and faculty to other uses until union members decide to return to work. Why should they be different than any other furloughed employee. No work, no pay.

Why should half my property taxes go to part-time teachers who still expect full-time pay??

    Maybe I will ask my kid’s teacher that when they start the hour long, Zoom meetings that happen three times a week during the school year.

    Actually, the demands being made on teachers for the upcoming school year are requiring more time and effort than they would put in during a normal school year. Things like…you are now responsible for 75 kids online instead of your normal 45 (you have to manage their online learning coursework, and have to figure out how to address their challenges over the phone and via email). In school districts where they are looking at partial openings, you now have A day students, and B day students, and you have a classroom of online learners that you have to manage. Then there is the ZOOM classroom set up where they want teachers to rearrange their HOMES into classroom space and teach class from there to students online….the demands are Insane! And of course, they are talking about cutting pay instead of compensating for the extra time and effort that all of this is going to take

Public school teachers are really playing with fire. The longer this goes on, the longer parents have time to figure out how to educate their kids without public schools. And a lot less kids may come back to school when teachers decide to bless our children with their presence.

“Schools Steal This Joy From Children”:
Homeschool & Outdoor Programs See Huge Surge Amid COVID-19

https://www.zerohedge.com/health/schools-steal-joy-children-homeschool-other-alternative-programs-see-unprecedented-surge

Some interesting comments there also.

“If you read some John Taylor Gatto essays, you know that stealing and suppressing all joy and creativity in children is the whole POINT of isolating children into age segregated classrooms in militarized rows of desks. Invented in old warlord Prussia, it’s all about conditioning living human beings into future unquestioning zombie soldiers for the state, machine cogs for the industrial age robber barrons, and in recent decades, customers for inane pop culture and prey for predatory sex perverts with abortion organ harvesting machines.

The NWO obsolete industrial age communists have overplayed their modified common cold panic hoax, by beleiving their own delusions and mistakenly bringing back millennia old human spirit driven home schooling. Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Edison, and Albert Einstein were all homeschooled in their childhoods. Genius is the natural human state.”

Comprachicos.

Thankfully my daughter graduated high school 2 yrs ago. Now I hopefully she get get her last 2 yrs at Iowa State University finished without too much disruption. Hope all of the other parents & kids can get thru all of this plandemic.

If I were a cashier at a grocery store, worked in a restaurant, was a healthcare provider or Amazon delivery dude….you know people deemed “essential” and go to work everyday for less than teachers make, I would cheerfully decline to serve any teacher who refused to go to work.

Remember President Reagan and what happened to the foolish air traffic controllers who thought that they were indispensable and irreplaceable? Let’s see some public school districts open without accommodating teacher unions’ demands (including demands that have no relationship to safety, like demands for loony left curriculum modifications). Tell the teachers that anyone who does not show up gets fired permanentlly, and replace them with a group of fresh-faced, open-eyed, and perfectly capable people who have some experience and have not had their imaginations destroyed by whatever passes these days for teacher education. Consider, for example, armed forces personnel whose enlistments are expiring or who are looking to start a new career after some years in the officer corps. Consider police officers who are sick & tired of the garbage that they have to endure to satisfy politicians’ virtue signaling. Consider entrepreneurs whose businesses have failed due to the pandemic, who are in a position to teach reading, writing & arithmetic to kids for a year or two while they contemplate what new businesses to start. Of course, the teachers unions will be in court the next day suing to prevent schools from opening. If a judge accommodates that kind of garbage and tells parents that kids cannot be educated because the schools belong to the teachers, Democrats had better look out on Nov. 3.
