Response to Heartstrings (Original post)

16. I have been saying the same thing for months.

Nobody is going to go back into colleges and schools to teach since teachers are not fools. Professors are already telling the govt that they will not be returning...

The schools that open will be guinea pigs, an experiment. It will be costly both in $$$ and in human resources. Schools will open then have to close again...costing even more $$$ that the govt is NOT giving them.
I taught and the majority of the time I was ill...really! Classrooms are germ factories and they infect everyone around them...including Mommy, Daddy, brothers and sisters and their friends. Have fun spreading the germs and getting sick folks because that is what will happen since the Fed Govt has failed us in every way and wasted months and billions of dollars doing NOTHING!

I read this article and saved it...
"In other words, it is completely unrealistic to expect schools to open and to stay open without interruption in 2020-21. What is realistic is that schools may open and may have to close if they cannot function due teacher, admin, and staff shortages from their contracting COVID, or if the threat of such contracting is deemed imminent and schools are shuttered proactively, or even if too many adults are exposed to a person with COVID and therefore must quarantine for a couple of weeks per instance. Think about that. It is possible that a student in my room contracts COVID. One student. Let’s say that student has been in contact with at least one classroom of 10 students (small, I know, but stay with me) and rides a bus with 20 other students (and with a bus driver) and has class with six teachers per day. So, right there, we have at least 37 individuals needing to be quarantined– six of whom are responsible for instruction."

This is what Taiwan did and they were successful, our govt botched it from the start and we are not even close to where they were.
