They have to re-open the building before they can go back to indoctrinating your kids.
(Thanks to Susan for the news tip)
A poll claims 4 out of 5 parents say they’re “considering” continuing homeschooling for their kids rather than sending them back to school this fall (https://www.studyfinds.org/scared-for-school-parents-homeschooling-kids-covid-19/).
That’s good news: the longer they have to do without public education, the more people will realize they can do without it. But so far the parents’ primary concern is whether the schools can protect their children from the Chinese Communist Doomsday Virus. Four out of five don’t think so. And 25% say uh-uh, under no circumstances will we allow our kids back into those classrooms, they’re just not safe.
A lot of folks who think of themselves as “conservatives” want the schools to be re-opened next month and the kids to go back. They haven’t thought this through. Without public education, including colleges and universities, the rise and success of cultural Marxism would be completely impossible. This is where all that toxic garbage comes from: our “education” establishment.
Trust me on this one, folks:
Defund the universities, break the teachers’ unions, kill public education… and Far Left Crazy dies.

I certainly wish everyone could go back to homeschooling or community supported one-room-schoolhouse types of education (e.g., the “pods” that some communities have now begun). But I’m still concerned about households that are incapable of home schooling or even pod-forming (podding?), either because they can’t afford it or because they’re too ill-educated themselves. Good place to start — but there does have to be some more consideration of these cases.
In the middle ages, most schooling was done by the church — in parishes, convents, and monasteries — with every kind of teaching from structured schools (like religious schools today) to individual or group tutoring of youngsters by priests, nuns, and monks as a social service to the poor. Maybe churches could start doing that again, with the teaching being done by members of the community (i.e., forming pods on a wider range), if they could just get around the government’s regulating bureaucracy. Ah, but that’s a big “if,” isn’t it?
We are, of course, strongly in favor of churches setting up schools and other Christian schooling alternatives. We’ve got to get out from under public mis-education.
This is definitely a silver lining of the pandemic cloud. Our public schools are offering three choices. Go full-time, go only to classes needing special instruction, or learn online at home. I am curious what I will find when I go back to substitute.
The effects of this quarantine will be long lasting.
