RETURN TO LEARN PLAN?

Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance

Prince William County School Board (from here (hpwcs.edu))

On Wednesday, the Prince William County School Board finally figured out how they want to start the upcoming school year. The title left me chuckling, School Board Adopts Return To Learn Plan For 2020-21 School Year (pwcs.edu). Here is how the document starts.

The Prince William County School Board unanimously (8-0) adopted a Return to Learning Plan that will have the first quarter of the school year as all virtual learning for most students. The first quarter will start for students on September 8, 2020, ending October 30, 2020. The goal will be to transition to a 50% capacity model in the second quarter, with the option for students to remain virtual. (continued here)

All virtual is not returning to school. Second quarter is just a maybe. What happened? Well, if you have three hours, you can listen to the whole…

  1. On the subject of school openings, I’m more an advocate of a state by state policy.
    I’m wondering why they can’t reopen the schools and have virtual learning there?
    For example, I’m sure one of the problems might be teachers who are immunocompromised and/or elderly.
    So…why not offer them the ability to stay home while someone younger with less risk maintains the order in the actual classroom?

      I think the real problem is that teachers are government employees. Even if they don’t work they get paid, and maintaining discipline in the classroom these days is work.

      1. Truth, this. For the short time I taught middle school, discipline was actually about 90 percent of the workload (unfortunately). Just seems like there should be a solution here. There is probably a very small portion of instructors who have disqualifying conditions. Maybe they could screen for that, and make exceptions? Because if they don’t and even one instructor goes to the ICU it will be used for propaganda purposes. This is easily foreseeable. I suspect the cost will be far greater than the gains. The opiate of blame runs strong these days.

  2. The science is very clear on this, that — you know, for instance, you look at the JAMA Pediatrics study of 46 pediatric hospitals in North America that said the risk of critical illness from COVID is far less for children than that of seasonal flu.

    The science is on our side here, and we encourage for localities and states to just simply follow the science, open our schools. It’s very damaging to our children: There is a lack of reporting of abuse; there’s mental depressions that are not addressed; suicidal ideations that are not addressed when students are not in school. Our schools are extremely important, they’re essential, and they must reopen.

    Reported as: “science should not stand in the way of this”

    And there is really (serious) discussion that the media is objective? It’s all just propaganda now.

    I’m reminded of a conspiracy theorist long ago who asserted there was no plane that hit the Pentagon because “how did they identify everyone from their fingerprints?” Took about five minutes to look it up and the article said “DNA fingerprints”. Easy to check if anyone cared, but they wanted so badly to believe the conspiracy no one bothered. Now this behavior is simply the modus operandi for “legitimate” media.
    Nauseating is an understatement.

    Maybe they can bring up the fake news about injecting bleach again.
    I’m sure they’re disappointed that after asserting this thousands of times they never got anyone to actually try it.

      The news media has a high threshold for that one.
      1. No one who supports Trump trusts the news media to report what he says accurately.
      2. Trump supporters are not stupid enough to inject bleach into themselves. We use bleach. We know what it is for.
