Whining school

Recommended Posts

One classroom ready. 

FFS they've had months.

They need someone to go in a d reorganize it all for them would take a couple of hours.

Classroom size reduction to about 9 or 10.

They need longer to read all the information and get ready.

Is she on drugs? She's talking so fast.

She's also said the caretaker has put the soft play stuff in a bag and she almost wept.

I think they're taking carpets up. 

Parent with underlying health issues isn't taking her kids back to school until there's a 'treatment'

Yes not a vaccine a treatment.

She thinks key workers children being at school is a risk.

I noticed today's headline in the Daily Mail was basically telling idle and/or politicised teachers to get back to work and stop complaining.

Lots of other countries have re-opened schools and it will be harder and harder to justify lockdown here.

Italy has  re-opened its cafes and you can even take HC in church.

The narrative is changing fast.

I think it's inhumane expecting schools to reopen when the weather is so nice, teachers deserve some R&R after working on the frontline for the past few months.

I reckon quite a few teachers are feeling butt-hurt because public applause is going to some minor NHS bed-pan emptiers when they themselves are highly skilled professionals who deserve it far more.

The teaching profession is astonishingly bad at trying to find a solution at this point.  They're spending all their effort inventing mechanisms to slow down schools reopening.

Eg, all the moans about 'can't reopen because what about all those high risk groups' -- FFS Just reopen for the 90% that aren't high-risk and sort out the 10% later.

And they really can't help themselves -- the ex (shadow?) education minister was on R4 earlier, and the diatribe rapidly moved onto 'the purpose of schools is to solve the social mobility problem, and we must take advantage here -- eg, get disadvantaged children back to school first'.  I couldn't believe what I was hearing -- the purpose of education is to make the next generation of workers, and any social mobility is a side effect.  I'd say do the opposite -- get those children most likely to benefit from education back to school first (whatever their background), and leave social mobility issues for later.

 

LOL Labour probably did the most of any party to destroy social mobility by closing down most of the grammar schools and turning the remainder of state schools into Gramscian indoctrination centres.

The purpose of schools is to educate - which, in the classical traditional sense, means teaching children how to think for themselves.

But we can't risk that, can we?

Our kids school has announced plans to partially reopen after half term.

Some of the measures they’re floating are ridiculous..  but fortunately with the help of a small parent rebellion they’re backing off on a few of them now.

It appears almost no-one from my son’s year 6 class is going to bother going back in June. Some worried by the virus, most just looking at the arrangements and thinking that’s just too mental to subject kids to.

Yep..  I thought I was a contrarian,  but it turn out most parents in our kids year group think the same.  Which is reassuring.

Ah...

But do you have to sign a waiver to declare that you won't sue the school if anyone in your household catches Covid-19 as a result of your kids being exposed to it in class?

No..  if anyone has been asked to do that I'd question the intelligence of the school management.   

If you could sue the school,  a waiver wouldn't protect them.  But asking people to sign one would appear to acknowledge that there is a risk,  which would weaken their case and make some parents even more nervous about sending their kids back.

Daughter is back full time to school next week. Has been doing half days.

Mind you, putting that in context there were a grand total of 3 new cases registered today in Switzerland.

Don't worry the bastards are bone idle here too - only in the private schools have they been actually trying to help kids catch up to where they should be. >:(

So what funny excessive things are they wanting in place?

Ours wanted kids to come to school in freshly washed clothes,   then change into freshly washed school uniform on school premises before going into their class.

Aside from the insane amount of extra washing and buggering about..  just..  why?!

Let me translate :-

We (teaching staff and heads) like getting paid for doing nothing, so we'll invent anything, anything to keep the kids away from us until the summer holiday starts. Education? Kid's futures? Nah, fuck that.

Facing down the teaching unions nonsense is going to be Boris’s version of the miners strike imho 

Nah, teachers’ unions are more interested in saving gmmigrants and “protected groups” than their own members.

Schools have been open to vulnerable and the kids of essential workers (stop clapping at the back). How many teachers have been infected in school since then? 
 

Had there been any proven cases, even mild ones, the unions would be shoving it down our throats. They’re not, so there haven’t been any proven cases. Man the fuck up and get back to school you shower of socialist, work shy cunts.

East lancs school case tonight
