    Democrats About-Face, Are Suddenly in Favor of Reopening Schools

    Democrats About-Face, Are Suddenly in Favor of Reopening Schools

    Maybe the Democrats should phone their teacher union allies and let them know that refusing to educate students while making political demands is not scoring them any political points.
    Listen to this article

    Well, well, well.

    Finally, after months of criticizing Trump for the same suggestion, Democrats have come round and endorsed the CDC’s recommendation that schools should reopen.

    This would be hilarious if they weren’t so horrendously shameless.

    There’s only one explanation for the gaslighting — advocating for endless shutdowns and school closures is killing them politically and is going to tank funding to some of their most loyal donors and supporters — unions.

    Yes, just like Trump suggested.

    You know this is coming:

    And this too. This is the route we’ve decided is best for our family for the foreseeable future:

    Chuckles is aware that schools are state/local issues, right …

    This reminds me of dems who tried to get around the few affirmative action cases they lost by reshaping laws and procedures in order to have disparate impact on the people they wanted – stuff to affect blacks without saying the word “black” anywhere in the law or procedure – and then they turn around and decide that any law that has disparate impact (unlike their intentional such laws devised for only that purpose) is “racist”, no matter the intent or reason for the disparate impact. The same people who fashioned laws with disparate impact try and discredit other laws for saying that any disparate impact (unintentional or for whatever reason) is illegal. LOL. That’s what you call “chutzpah”! And one of the big supporters of such idiocy sits on the SCOTUS bench … the Empathetic, Wise Latina …

    And now they’re trying to pull the same stuff with schools, which they and they leftist shock troops have fought tooth and nail every day … But they figure, “Why not, we got away with the rest of the insane stuff we’ve done!”

    Home schooling, and good on-line schooling is catching on more than ever. Not to mention “block” schools where this mom teaches this, that mom teaches the other, the stay-at-home dad teaches the other, and the one with the mini-van takes the kids to museums and on field trips.

    The unions and the PhDs in Education are losing control of what the kids are taought, and they are screaming blue murder.

      This is how it works and often very well. The quality of shared parental education gives the children much practical experience as well as hte “book learning.”

      The Bride’s great nieces and nephew who were/are home schooled this way were quite capable of carrying their side of an adult level conversation as pre-teens. Discussing politics and civics with a twelve year old girl who quotes the Constitution is an experience I found very enjoyable. And challenging.

    Not saying that this is true of all teachers (my teacher sister was a high school valedictorian) but there is a reason why the education majors are usually the dumbest students in any college or university.

    If you want to have children and not know who the father is, your choice, but I shouldn’t have to pay for it. You have children out of wedlock then don’t count on us, who play by the rules, to pay for your choice of a bad lifestyle. As for us without children, that was our choice so why do we still have to pay? If you want two homes and 3 cars then you better have a way to support that life-choice and don’t take my money. We don’t want kids, so we didn’t have any. We put that money into savings for retirement and use some of it to give to wounded warriors or something like that…that would be OUR choice with OUR money.

    If virtual education works, you can fire 95% of the teachers and just show videos. If you do that, the $ flow to the dems slows to a trickle. The realization that that could happen brings Chuck to the podium demanding that the coffers schools be re-opened.
