I have written several articles on Education. A list of links have been provided at bottom of this article for your convenience. This article will, however address different aspects on education.
After watching several interviews involving teachers, it is quite apparent that most of the teachers don’t want to go back to work. They seem to be quite content just collecting their unemployment pay plus the incentive pay. They argue that we need to follow the science, but when presented with facts they don’t want to listen. All the countries in Europe have opened up their schools. The fact is that not one teacher has been infected by a student. The second fact is that children just seem to not get infected with covid. Third fact, they can wear masks to protect themselves. Hospitals have never closed. Nurses take care of covid patients all the time. Fourth fact, if the teacher is at a higher risk, they don’t have to come back to the schools. Fifth fact, we don’t have to reinvent the wheel. We have all of Europe for models of how to successfully open up the schools. We are just making this way too complicated. Sixth fact, Education has become a political tool of the left. As long as schools are closed, many parents can’t go back to work. This will keep the unemployment rate higher, thereby hurting President Trump’s chances at getting re-elected.
