Mass. Educators Don't Understand Why
They're Being Told to Teach Remotely From
Classroom

While many students in Massachusetts will start the school year with remote learning, some teachers are upset that they will still have to report to the classroom. "My husband and I are both teachers. I have a kindergartner starting school in a hybrid model, and a 7-month-old at home," said Emily Mackie. Mackie is currently juggling life as a parent and a third-grade teacher in Brookline, where school is scheduled to start in a remote model in the fall. But under the recent state guidelines issued by Education Commissioner Jeffrey Riley, teachers are still being instructed to teach from their classrooms, even during remote learning.

Comments:

Maybe they all should be fired and front line nurses hire for the teachers jobs.

It isn't the taxpayers problem that this teacher has children. If she doesn't want to work and do what her "Job Description" states, then QUIT. So many teachers are pita's and are typical whiny liberals who think that their problems are superior. I'm tired of it.

I think a lot of Americans are tired of the Teachers whining about being afraid! So are a lot of people in this country, but they go out and do their job every day! Those Teachers in MA have the luxury of teaching in an empty room. They aren't exposed to anyone else! Wear a mask walking in and out of the building! And, find a Babysitter like all the other working women in this country are having to do. What makes Teachers think they are so special? They have already had six months at home since the Pandemic began, do they think they an drag this out for a whole year and get PAID for staying home? I don't think that's going to fly!

Of course if they are allowed to stay home then they'll be too busy to teach. I wonder how much the absentee rate will go up if they're not in the classroom.

The demands of teachers for special treatment would be tolerable if teachers by and large were doing a fantastic job of educating America's children, but they're not. We constantly hear that they need more money, more resources, more benefits, more time off, more paid this and that. They even get special home buying discounts, discounts at stores (at least in my area) that others don't get. At least the military, who also get these types of benefit, actually protect and defend. I guess some teachers think remote learning was only supposed to work to their advantage. What about the parents who have to go to their job sites and who have similar childcare issues? If the teachers are working from home, won't they still have to devote time to teaching and need someone else to watch their children? Or, did they expect to be stay at home parents and fit in teaching when they were available, but still get paid as if they were in the classroom? At least the bureaucracy is making them accountable.

This is my 4th week back at school. It is hybrid with kids being here on a Mon/Thurs or Tues/Fri schedule. on Wed. everyone is online. Teachers and support staff are here everyday. When they are in school the teachers have support from their peers, tech support, materials to support their lessons. With half of the students reporting on any given day it has been easy to maintain a safe school. Every precaution is being met and implemented. When we had to close in March we were not allowed to return. It looked very bad from a PR standpoint. Teachers, hanging at home, getting paid, not doing much. When this first happened we asked if we could return to school to teach virtually from our rooms once the school was cleaned. Health Department would not allow us to return. So we are here, doing what we need to do. It is not perfect and we see problems but try to address them as best as we can. Luckily our elementary schools are open 5 days a week with full classes. Hybrid is for our middle schools and high schools. Elementary students need more personal, hands on instruction. So far it is working and we are moving ahead. We will roll with the punches, make adjustments. This is not ideal but we will make it work. Teachers need to be in their buildings even if it is totally virtual.

An idea for this teacher: first pretend that last winter we had a normal flu season, without covid. Next, put in place your child care plans that you would have made over the summer for a normal return to school. Return to your classroom which is temporarily empty. Teach.

Cry me a river! Does this whiney teacher ever go to the store? Does she keep her child in a sealed room? Lots of us have worked throughout the pandemic and continued to go out and.. we are still living! Teachers are supposed to be smart and not buy into all of their union brand fear. Do your job, stop complaining, take precautions. You're lucky to have your job!

Seriously? Afraid to be among other teachers wearing masks?! I remember when Reagan fired the striking air traffic controllers. I would love to see teachers released from their scary work, and brave grocery store workers trained to do their job.

My daughter has been working from home all summer. My grandchildren are going to school 2 days a week and three days are on-line. None of the teachers here seem to be whining and the students are ready to go back. My daughter isn't afraid, but some of her friends are to the point that they are hiring tutors. One of the worst things about the 'rona is it's made so many people scared to death of everything.

Proof again that your kids are secondary when it comes to 80% of teachers. Their priorities are their political agenda, their salary and their pension. Shes talking like they are the only ones with children at home. Being a teacher you would think she is aware of all the families with children at home. But no, her first priority is herself. Typical of the liberal mind set......................

I believe how teachers' view their jobs is at least partially dependent on the political climate where they live. I live in Steve Scalise's district in South Louisiana. We generally vote conservative Republican. Every teacher at my school is returning and ready to do as much as The Powers That Be will allow us.

Just have a bullet proof glass wall between you and your students. They see you, you teach. An added benefit, if they act up, you send them home for a few days and let their parents deal with them. At least you won’t have to worry about the little savage laying their hands on you.

Remember when we asked other 'essential workers' to show up at police departments, fire stations, hospitals, grocery stores and other businesses? Now its your turn to take appropriate precautions and do your job. The students need your undivided attention and it doesn't sound like you can provide that from your home.

My niece, who teaches music in another state, told me that in her state, if classes are moved to remote learning, they will still be expected to come to the school every day. She asked somebody why (as she lives about 20-30 miles away) and was told that "the taxpayers are going to get angry if they see the teachers getting paid for sitting at home."

I am really struggling. I am a paramedic. I have not missed a day of work since this started. I’m in a relationship with a nurse. Same story for her. My oldest son is a cop. He’s been working overtime because of the protests, I mean riots. My youngest son is in IT so he has worked from home. Then there is his wife. She is working on her Masters to teach. Every day I have to read something about how the teachers are carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders because they are being asked to DO THEIR JOB !! I’m struggling to not tell her what I think as I think of all the people that have been doing their jobs. The list is long but it’s not important because the teachers are unhappy. SMDH !!

You recycle your beverage containers and cardboard, and even your electronics. But what about your drugs? A St. John’s company is well on its way to making them recyclable, too. Unbound Chemicals was incorporated last year, although it took about three years to get the research and planning underway. “You need a bit of a runway before you can take a go at it,” founder and chief executive officer Blaine Edwards said in an interview Friday. Last month, the startup achieved a major milestone in its laboratory research, successfully extracting the active ingredient trimipramine from pills that expired in 2018. Trimipramine is a common antidepressant. Not only did they succeed, they exceeded expectations.  Correction*

The Bureau of Land Management on Thursday took a step toward development of the Willow oil prospect in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska, a large ConocoPhillips effort that could help revive Alaska’s sagging economic fortunes, though critics say it endangers polar bears and the climate. The agency, releasing the final environmental review of the project, said the development could produce more than 160,000 barrels of oil daily over 30 years, helping offset dwindling oil production and state revenues in Alaska. Construction would produce more than 1,000 jobs, and lead to more than 400 jobs when it begins operating.

Scientists have long known that heavy alcohol use shrinks the brain, but it's not clear whether or not moderate drinking has a similar effect.

On average, the subject group reported moderate alcohol consumption, indicated by an AUDIT-C score of 3.92.
