Union head says opening schools is ‘white

The president of the Pasco Association of Educators (PAE) claims reopening schools for in-person learning is an example of “white supremacy,” and compares listening to concerned parents to following rioters breaking into the U.S. Capitol. He even says concern over student suicide is an example of “white privilege.” Scott Wilson, PAE president, made a series of unhinged, controversial remarks during a Pasco School Board meeting this week. The statements come as the union pushes for total remote learning for elementary schools, even with near-consensus from the medical community that it is safe to reopen schools with mitigation policies in place.

Teen suicide is white privilege. That’s insane. I’m truly starting to get scared if people truly believe this.

Wow, I thought they were "all about the science". I believe that biden wants the schools open. This could get interesting. As of this moment I am at school, right now, since August, with kids and staff. But I have to admit I am white.

They just scream out their hysterical nonsense, even though it makes not the slightest sense and has no basis in fact. "White privilege" is actually achievement. Get off your lazy butts and WORK for something and you can achieve, too.

Once again the powers that be tell us just how "non-essential" the teachers and public schools are. Why anyone would trust their children to these idiots is beyond me.

Dismissing suicide concerns as "white privilege" is akin to deploying the reductio ad hitleram fallacy. It is a non sequitur. One possible response would be to ask, "When did you stop molesting children?"

Well this confirms that not only are teachers "non-essential" workers but also the schools themselves are no longer necessary. Sell them all off, fire all the teachers, and lower our property taxes by 95% (still have to pay some of the district Admins and politicians). Sounds like a Win-Win-Win to me. No more construction/maintenance costs, teachers can stay home all the time and be 100% safe, and we get to keep more of our money.

Is there anything left that is not white supremacy? It has been said many times before but bears repeating - All POC should cease using anything which was invented, designed or created by white people because that is “cultural appropriation”. Name one thing that was invented in the jungles of Africa or South America. So give up your houses and go live in caves. You can have peanut butter since it was invented by a black man but you must plant, harvest and grind it with your own two hands since all of those farming and manufacturing tools were invented by white men. Get rid of every modern convenience available and quit speaking anything other than some African dialect. Otherwise, shut up, get a job and support yourself.

I live near 5 elementary schools - 2 private, 3 public. Every morning parents are backed up dropping their kids off at the two private schools. They are totally full with waiting lists. The 3 public schools are doing virtual school. They did have kids coming in a couple days a week but I think that has stopped again as I don’t see any buses or parents lined up to pick up or drop off kids. Don’t see any walking to or from schools and no crossing guards either. They can still pick up food though. Really feel sorry for these kids.

New data offers a sobering look at how school closures during the pandemic have affected child welfare reporting. After school buildings closed last school year, the Washington state agency that investigates child abuse and neglect received 87% fewer calls from concerned teachers, counselors and other mandatory school reporters on average per week through June. This school year, reports are down 59%. The new data from the Department of Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF) confirms what many educators, families and officials feared: Fewer eyes on children during the pandemic has resulted in fewer reported instances of neglect and abuse.
