'I Don't Want to Go Back': Many Teachers
Are Fearful and Angry Over Pressure to Return

Original Article

Posted By: NorthernDog, 7/13/2020 8:59:16 PM

Many of the nation’s 3.5 million teachers found themselves feeling under siege this week as pressure from the White House, pediatricians and some parents to get back to physical classrooms intensified — even as the coronavirus rages across much of the country. On Friday, the teachers’ union in Los Angeles, the nation’s second-largest district, demanded full-time remote learning when the academic year begins on Aug. 18, and called President Donald Trump’s push to reopen schools part of a “dangerous, anti-science agenda that puts the lives of our members, our students and our families at risk.” Teachers say crucial questions about

It's time to eliminate government schools. Private schools have an incentive to be good. The better they are the more money they make. Government schools are just the opposite. They have an incentive to be bad. The worse they are the more money they can get.

You get paid for 12 months while working for 9 months. You get every weekend off. You get every imaginable holiday off, as well as "curriculum development days, etc." You never have to work overtime or on a weekend. I attended primary school in the '50s, before teachers unions. I hope Albert Shanker (UFT, then AFT) is roasting wherever he's spending his time these days. Back then we learned reading, writing (Palmer Method, stick pens and inkwells), and arithmetic, including the multiplication tables and use of a slide rule. And I've been a teacher, albeit at the college level, and the challenges and perks were the same. The current crop of propaganda-spewing snowflakes can all join Shanker, wherever he is.

All you need to do is look at the source of this article and it automatically can be discarded like the trash that it is. The only teachers out there who "don't want to teach" are the usual D apologists with their usual hands out wanting to be paid for not being there. It's in their DNA.

This strikes me as an article to encourage teachers not to want to go back to work, and they can blame it on fear, pressure, and feeling under siege. Under siege? Seriously? Some parents? Would that be the parents who want to go back to work and get things back to normal? I think that teachers who manage to stay at home until the election will be surprised how fast they go back to work after the election is over. That is unless the democrat states drag things out further by refusing to certify the election.

So the lefty educrats and idiot teachers don't want schools to re-open. That would imply they didn't ever have to shut down in the first place. So if they are FORCED to re-open, they will make it so crazy that people will BEG to keep their kids home.

Fine, give up the paychecks you worthless dimwits. If teachers were measured on results like all workers in the private sector, your annual reviews would receive a big "F" and your annual raises would not be so generous. Stay home, retire. The world will be the same without you.

Poppycock and balderdash. They have got this handout free lunch thing going for them. If they are on salary-distribution, I can see why they would stay home (money coming in all year). But if they were on school term salary, that would stop over the usual summer months. What to do, What to do? If they are minority teachers, no worries. Only the white teachers have to think about it.

What is the science on children and The Virus? I got my hair cut, they had dividers between the chairs to create work stations. I go to other retail outlets and they have plexiglass screens between the employees and the customers. Healthcare workers wear masks, shields and gowns. I am sure school districts can come up with something to keep teachers visible, yet protected from the (i.e. shields, plexiglass, gowns, etc.). If all the other essential workers can make it work, so can teachers.

30 years ago, the local school district started using the IBM 'Write to Read' program for Pre-1st and 1st grades. It was a logical way to teach phonics. The use of the program ended within 2 years. It was too hard for the teachers.

I am a public school special education teacher. I want to go back to in-person school, as much as they (government) will allow me. Virtual school only works for the highest achieving and self-disciplined students. Average students will fall behind. Below average and special education students' academic losses may be insurmountable without in-person schooling. I will be cautious, but I am not fearful or angry.

For years, and years and years, we've had PSAs, saccharine lectures and "memes"—from long before memes were a thing—about how noble, self-sacrificing, selfless, devoted, not to mention professional and always underpaid, teachers were. Turns out it's not so. They're blubbering about how awful Trump is, and they're all gonna die and whatever. I'm not real good with blubbering.

For years, I worked at different jobs. If I didn't like my job, or didn't feel like going, I went anyway. If I hated my boss, I went anyway. If I really, really didn't want to do that job, I quit and found another job (though I was usually smart enough to find a new job and then resign). Doctors and nurses have been working non-stop through this whole pandemic. Mailmen have brought the mail every day. The cashier at Wal-Mart has been there through it all (well, until they fired her and replaced her with a self-checkout kiosk). You have been off since spring break. If you don't want to work, quit and find something else. If it's good enough for the mailman, you will live!!!

This may be the NYT but sorry, this is the attitude of too many teachers. The government schools haven’t been putting children first for a LONG time. Too many honest retired teachers will tell you that. My state has no teacher unions yet same liberalism prevails here - big schools and rural ranching areas. Denmark, Sweden, Japan and even Germany haven’t even used children as political covid pawns like what is happening here. They did not use the same goofy scientific models our corrupt CDC talked our President into and they are doing very well.

New York's polls closed nearly three weeks ago. But many candidates still don't know whether they've won -- because New York City is still counting ballots that arrived in the mail. These votes would be an afterthought in most years. In fact, in New York, which is typically far more reliant on in-person voting, state law requires a weeklong delay before counting absentee ballots. But this year, amid widespread worries of COVID-19 spreading at polling places, the number of mail-in ballots is surging far faster than states' ability to count them. Elections experts are increasingly convinced that this surge, and the

At this point, maybe Hillary is tripling down or quadrupling down. She is still beating a dead horse – the loser of the 2016 presidential election wanted the viewers of Trevor Noah’s late-night television show to know that Trump’s victory was illegitimate and she has thoughts or something. She doesn’t have any new thoughts, mind you, but she is bitterly clinging to her old thoughts. Watching a video of the interview, it is easy for anyone who paid attention to the 2016 election or is old enough to remember the administration of Bill Clinton to understand the irony in most of Hillary’s answers to the softball questions asked by Noah.
