NYC Kids Must Go Remote if Parents Do Not Agree to the School Performing COVID Test Without Them

NYC Kids Must Go Remote if Parents Do Not Agree to the School Performing COVID Test Without Them

I find it disturbing that so many parents agreed to allow public officials to test their child without them being in the room.

I came across this New York Post article about 12,000 kids not allowed to return to school after the Christmas holidays over lack of COVID-19 consent forms. Interest piqued because government sucks.

It turns out Mayor Bill de Blasio required a consent form to test your child for COVID without a parent present and would not accept test results from a private doctor.


These 12,000 kids will go to remote learning and receive lessons from the principal.

From The New York Post:

Citing the need to limit traffic in school buildings, the agency barred parents from being present for the screens.

The DOE also declined to accept results from private doctors, arguing that they needed simultaneous tests in order to establish representative school samples.

The agency warned that kids without the forms and those who failed to show up for building instruction would be culled from the ranks of blended learners before winter break.

De Blasio has said that principals will be able to determine if they can provide full-time learning once in-person rosters have been finalized.

Oh hell no. You will not do anything with or to my child without me being in the room. Nope. Nope. Nope. Do not care. If my child is under 18 years old I am in the room with them.

I have no problem with random testing, but it would not happen without me.

Parents, along with some teachers, sued New York City over the mandatory tests. They claimed “the Department of Education is not being wholly transparent over the fate of COVID-19 test samples:

They’re specifically looking for a contract the DOE signed with Fulgent Genetics, Inc., which was hired in October to administer the tests. So far, they have only been presented with an agreement, which the group’s attorney, Michael Sussman, argues does not explicitly state that the specimens will be destroyed.

“To date, not a single contract has been produced by the DOE or NYC [Health + Hospitals] that proves what is, and is not, permitted to be done with specimens collected from in-school COVID testing,” a statement from NY Teachers For Choice reads. “All such agreements remain secret which is ridiculous as they are all public contracts and should be made available upon request.”

The agreement posted on the DOE’s website states that testing labs hired by the agency cannot collect information and store it in any DNA database.

Michael Sussman, the attorney who represents Teachers for Choice, wants more and I do not blame him or the teachers:

But even with those agreements posted, Sussman says their release is not as important as a written contract that explicitly states the test specimens won’t go to any proprietary DNA database, which Fulgent is known for maintaining.

“This is not a suit opposing testing the New York City school district. There may be people who oppose testing and they can have their lawsuit litigated in another forum, this is not that case,” Sussman said at a news conference on Monday.

The parents also allege that moving kids to remote learning over refusal to sign consent forms “violates Fourth Amendment privacy rights.”

So New York City has these restrictions, but to no one’s shock, incompetence has crept up in such little time.

The schools have not tested every student with consent forms:

But even with consent forms submitted, not every student has been tested for COVID-19 since the program began. At P.S. 107 in Park Slope, for instance, only one of two cohorts has been tested for COVID-19. When asked about this, de Blasio was skeptical of the lack of testing, despite data from the city Department of Education’s testing tracker website that shows testers repeatedly showed up on days when the same cohort was scheduled for in-person classes.

“Any school that’s not going through the right cohort approach, that’s something we want to fix immediately. We can fix immediately,” de Blasio said at a news conference Monday. “That could be as easy as just changing the days when the testing occurs.”

But de Blasio is going to punish those who do not submit a consent form? Rude.

        When the Ever-Lying MSM tells you President Trump is doing something, you know the DEMOCRATS ARE ALREADY DOING THAT.

          OH MY.

          Trucks Backed Up For Miles, Supermarket Shelves Empty as France Seals UK Border

          This is in reaction to the next planned phase of the pandemic panic, the Superinfectious New Strain phase.

          Is cheap crap from Walmart really worth this price?

          Boris Johnson declared London a “Tier 4” zone, which means the population is now literally locked inside the city and cannot leave.

          People rushed to escape hours before the new diktat took effect…..

          “Police are authorized to stop and fine people fleeing Tier 4 areas “without a reasonable excuse” as to why they are attempting to move freely.”

          Remember when the Berlin Wall was “Generally Recognized as a Bad Thing?”

      namoaop, I greatly appreciate your posting of relevant Bible verses. Good choices! My favorite is Isaiah 55.

      However, “DEFUND ALL PUBLIC EDUCATION – K THROUGH PHD.” may be a good goal, but I can’t imagine how you think we can accomplish it. In order to do that, we would have to win elections, and our latest attempt at doing that demonstrated that there is currently simply no such thing as an “election” – partly because so many “voters” have gone through the “PUBLIC EDUCATION – K THROUGH PHD” system.

      Meanwhile, I have been repeatedly suggesting a practical solution which in many cases depends only on families re-prioritizing their financial decisions and getting their children out of the government schools, and possibly helping others do the same.

      I have not seen any responses to my suggestion. Perhaps every commenter here has already done this. Or perhaps many do not have the financial means. They should be discussing this with the leadership of their church. Or perhaps many think that although most government schools are horrible, the one their children attend is the exception. This is known as the “denial” stage of grief. Or perhaps there are no alternatives to government schools in their area. There are homeschooling, educational pods, and moving to a better area.

      I am no paragon of virtue. Two of my three children were grievously harmed by government schools before I figured out what was going on. I ended up moving my family from NY to FL. That has worked well.

      Please stop waiting for the government to solve your educational problem. As Reagan said, government IS the problem. Sadly, he did nothing to get government out of the education business. Neither did any other president other than President Donald Trump.

      I suggest you check out Malachi 4:5-6. It identifies the problem. We live in a child-sacrifice culture.

    Don’t bother trying to stop them: it’s too late.
    Like the old legal maxim: sit on your rights and you lose them.

    We elected, re-elected, re-re-elected etc the Crying Boehners we got what we paid for. We should have done better.

    All that said, forget about ‘stopping them’: our only way is OUT.

    Start the divorce discussions, and you’ll see how the left will PANIC. They cannot survive without us, but we can survive just fine without them.

    Start the discussions before it is too late.

“…would not accept test results from a private doctor.”

Still and again: it’s not about a virus. It’s about CONTROL.

Eff these fascists.

    Poor People need the fuel build into those schools and colleges……..

    Gotta wear the mask; gotta be tested by the company the school district says; gotta keep your parents out of the school; gotta go to virtual school (I’ve witnessed first hand the “education” from virtual “learning”–most teachers are not yet trained in the proper way to teach in virtual schools and those that were trained prior to the plandemic have not been utilized to work with their cohorts); gotta do what Herr di Bozo and Comrade Cuomo say or they will make you pay, literally and figuratively! More accurately, they will make your children pay with a vastly substandard education. I have seen reports of NAEP testing this fall and the abyssmal scores on the tests to the point that they aren’t even being reported. I have also seen reports of state testing that was so pathetic that students were GIVEN grades of A on the report card although the actual score is recorded on their transcripts but will not be distributed to colleges or other districts when the student leaves. One more consequence of the Socialists–dumb down education so that only the children of the elite have the “golden” education.

Does anyone remember PATCO? This looks like national security to me.

Get some kids to say “mommy, he touched me!” Or, do it right. Some Bucky McMartin Pre-School inventions. That should stop them in their tracks.

“…and would not accept test results from a private doctor.”

That fraudulent tyrant should be run out of town on a rail

Everyone should resist testing unless they are sick enough to seek medical care. Testing has no clinical utility, Testing gives ammo to the tyrants. Importantly excessive testing is killing already over stressed and under staffed laboratories. We need some relief! Stop testing people.

    If anyone is wondering why gun owners have steadfastly resisted a testing requirement for Second Amendment rights, here you go.

Search for “east stroudsburg forced genital exam”.

If you give your children to the government school, then the government school has your children.

So, is anyone surprised? None of this matters, now. It is simply too late for the totalitarians to back-off and let everything cool down. They will continue to push their agenda until the American people rise up in open revolt.

Now, notice where all of these totalitarian experiments are taking place. Places where law abiding citizen’s possession of firearms is restricted. When we see the government actively enforcing business lockdowns, it only seems to involve middle class businesses in predominately white areas. What is the rate of compliance for low income and minority businesses, especially in the ‘hood or the barrio? Why do we see states with low firearms restrictions either open or rarely having reports of excessive and arbitrary lockdowns? The common denominator in all of these seemingly contradictory facts is the law abiding citizen’s access to personal weapons, especially firearms. As a noted philosopher, All Capone, once said, “You can get more with a kind word and a gun , than you can with a kind word alone”. Give up all you rights, if you want. But NEVER relinquish that guaranteed by the 2nd Ammendment.
