I have an opinion, but don’t have kids so your opinion is the voice needed and appreciated.

tv ( usually only watch Fox and TBN ) is all over the place. What are parents gonna do, or what do parents plan on doing if all these totalitarian ideas are in place by your state governors?

ie; mandatory vaccination?

sorry at not being specific. The state governors all have different ideas.

I think the government has put the fear of God into the populace over this CV-19. It is not the end of the world as we know it, other than what we make of it.

Send'em all back.

Let nature take its course.

I intend to be back in the classroom in the fall teaching, and I'm in one of the "danger" categories.

Send em back! Lord knows the first month or two is going to be remedial to catch at least some of them up...

Oh, wait, that darn no child left behind thing. We may well have a large amount of kids graduating in the next year or three with a larger hole in their education than normal. You know probably close to half of the kids that were homeschooled through this were just handed their stuff and told to get to work, with no one making sure it got done. I hope I'm wrong, but I doubt it.

Home schooling, if done right isn't a bad thing. Most people were not prepared for the task for obvious reasons. That includes the teachers who are trying to teach remotely. Right now getting the kids back into the schools would be best. At least in many communities.

Just last month, a Harvard professor expressed worry that children home-schooled during the pandemic will not be able to contribute to a democratic society. (Does that mean she thinks they may discover we live in a republic, not a democracy?) She said, "The issue is, do we think that parents should have 24/7, essentially authoritarian control over their children from ages zero to 18? I think that's dangerous. I think it's always dangerous to put powerful people in charge of the powerless, and to give the powerful ones total authority."

Reading between the lines, this liberal idiot is worried that the pandemic will take kids off the liberal narrative long enough that they may start to question the status quo in education. So I not only don't think they should go back to school in the Fall, I not sure they should go back to commie school system at all. We need to find alternatives.

The only thing kids will learn if not allowed back in school this fall is Fear.
They will learn what a bunch of cowards we have running this country.
My boy's are in their 20's now, but I would send them back to school.

While I don't have a dog in that fight, I would like to think that the pause in life we have experienced will teach the teachers to reconsider some aspects of their liberal educations. Who knows, this might be the straw - going without income is a powerful teacher too.

My daughter has home schooled her 2 boys, ages 8 and 10 for a couple of years...so nothing has changed for them. They have a vast range of knowledge for kids their age and always amaze me with what they know.

If the schools don't go back in the fall, the parents won't be able to work. If the parents can't work (many people live on double incomes) they will have to file for welfare and go down that rabbit hole of public assistance.
That makes them dependent on the government and the Liberals achieve their dream country of Socialism.

Children are at a very low risk for COVID and the teachers can be tested before they go back.

There's more of a political struggle going on over school re-openings than an educational question. Look at who's for opening and who's against.

Back to school. Period.

This should not even be a debate.

Our population has been turned into a mob of servile virtue signalers in the last two months. If we don't go back to school in the fall, we're admitting defeat to fear and embracing authoritarianism.

I'm sickened by so many men and women wanting to be coddled and suck on the teats of the Government, and by so many in the Government thinking they know best and ignoring the damage they are causing.

My daughter's family is in one of those communist states that is murdering the elderly in nursing homes by forcing them to accept CV patients, even though the hospital ship sent there specifically for that purpose is empty. They are also ordering forced vaccines and publically reporting those that are not obeying the forced poisoning. They are also denying homeschoolers the right to assemble, no more than 2 families together at a time, even before this Corona trash. They are actively seeking refuge in the US somewhere outside the communist states that blatantly reject the Constitution.

As for children going to school, I understand that no children died. The reports I heard also mentioned that many children had contracted CV19 without even knowing it as the symptoms were rather mild. I'm not so sure that CV is as much of a threat to the children as the lying media presents it. They thrive on scandal and crisis, whether real or manufactured. I don't see CV as much of a threat as the media would have us believe. I know a few people in the EMT field. According to them they only had 2 calls involving CV19 since the SAH orders. But lots of concerns. The EMTs told them to stop watching CNN.

Guess where the population learned all that...In the public school system. And it didn't happen in the last two months. It has been happening for decades. This virus thing has just highlighted it. So you are wanting them to go back to more indoctrination? What sickens me is that parents depend on the schools to be babysitters and don't care that the babysitters and filling their kids heads with the party line.

The virus, and even the government's overreaction to it, are the least of our worries, at best a distraction from the real problems.

Good on ya', my friend.

Do you have a handle on how many fellow profs have a similar inclination? Hopefully enough to keep the ivy halls open.

I agree that most public schools have become Liberal indoctrination centers. However, in defense of parents using them as babysitters. The law requires them to send their children to school, if they don't they can go to jail. Now the government is pulling the rug out from underneath them and telling them to keep their kids at home. They can't win. One parent will have to stay home and single parents are just flat out of luck, I don't know what they'll do.

The government requires they go to school, not public school. If you depend on the government to raise your kids, you get the government's agenda. Home schools are legal in all 50 states and there is no rule the schooling has to be during working hours. There are affordable private schools with financial aid everywhere. In most places, it is possible to start a small, non-profit, private school with a very small staff, like four teacher/administrators, who could service 40-60 students. People are doing it successfully all around the country.

Sure, those options create hardships and sacrifice. I know, I've been there. Standing up against the government agenda is never easy. But as you say, going with the government's agenda is no bed of roses either. I mean, if the government was honest and just came out and said, "We're taking your kids away for socialist indoctrination," what would you do? Because that is the reality.
