A survey of faculty and staff found that seventy-two per cent preferred remote instruction, while a quarter preferred a mixture and only three per cent preferred all in-person.
Among all teachers, only 3% aren’t stupid, egotistical, lazy hacks.
Of course, it’s all completely political:
There may have been an implicitly political dynamic at work: the greater the threat posed by covid-19, the greater Trump’s failure in not containing it. (Joe Biden’s campaign aired an ad in early September that read “Our Kids Not Safe in School.”)
Gosh, if even the deeply partisan New Yorker is recognizing, imagine what reality actually is.
A study by the Brookings Institution found that districts’ school-opening decisions correlated much more strongly with levels of support for Trump in the 2016 election than with local coronavirus case levels. “It almost feels like folly now to speak about data,” Nuzzo told me. “The decision was going to be made not
on data but on politics.”
In other words, it’s exactly the people who are donating to the BLM and putting up BLM signs in their front yards who are depriving the most vulnerable kids of a chance to get an education. It’s not a big. It’s a feature. Less kids who succeed in school means better chances of college and good employment for their own children.
COVID is class war.
