    California schools are gonna be shut down again it looks like

    You guys can think what you want but this fucking pisses me off.

    I am a teacher and I just sent a message to my coworkers and union that if they support this I am out of being a member of the union. That matters because I am at a charter and we are currently in the process of unionizing. Again, believe what you want, but I am fairly respected there, and in the area, as a great teacher and advocate for kids and not adults. If I back off, the whole thing could very well fall apart.

    With San Diego and LA unifieds saying that will not open, and have NO TIMETABLE to open, other districts will have to follow that have any type of urban population. Nobody is going to want to be the person who bucks the trend and then a staff member or kid gets the virus and dies. Every superintendant will use those two districts for cover and crawl under their desks and hide.

    Extremely disappointed and fucking pissed that this is happening.

        Actually yes! LOL

        But I know that isn't going to happen. What we talked about was a rotation where half the kids come 8-11:30 and the other half 12:00-3:30. Half hour lunch/cleaning.

        Remember, I am at a charter so I don't have 40 in a room like some places. We cap at 24

          I think most colleges that I know of announced months ago they were online only.

          That is the dustup with Trump pulling their Visas.

            so 12 per room in the 50/50 setup? how big are the rooms? are they of the age where mask wearing would be respected? I'm honestly ok with the split setup at your place if so. but I understand why LA can't do that. they dont have the nearly the same ratio.

                Weird, Ducey is following Trump's guidelines and wants to reopen schools here, The teachers union here sez it is too early and wait.

                Must be a California thing.
