Our government school system is officially a huge detriment to the children and our future!

Joe Gamaldi (@JoeGamaldi) Tweeted:
***Update: The School district has reached out, they have pulled back the assignment, apologized for the assignment, and will be issuing an apology to the parents.*** @WylieISD



So the school gave a less than acceptable apology and said nothing, zero, zip about removing this indoctrination teacher!

and this is what was in the comment section. . . . I guess everyone who stands up in support of our police department will now be called Karens. . . .

That is disgusting. Any teacher who knowingly was involved in this should be fired. Haven’t the police been demonized enough in the last 3 months. How can you EVER expect kids to respect the police when you have teachers who are so political and teach our kids to hate them. Shame on those involved. And shame on the pricipal of this school and the Wylie ISD officials for being too scared to do the right thing here. I have NO respect for any of you. My only respect would be for anyone in the police department who chooses to “forgive” you. You don’t deserve it

    Karen! I hate to hear that the FOP got their feelings hurt over a political cartoon! What will we do? We must feel sorry for those racist snowflakes. God forbid their feelings are hurt after countless unnecessary deaths at the hands and knees of their fraternal brethren. ACAB

COVID-19 outbreaks close nine Tennessee schools as reopenings continue, state says


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Nine Tennessee schools are now closed to in-person learning statewide because of COVID-19 outbreaks inside their buildings, state officials said Tuesday.

In Bedford County, Shelbyville Central High School and Liberty Elementary School have now moved to virtual learning, according to the state.

In Marshall County, Cornersville High School and Marshall County High are closed.

In Maury, the state says, Baker Elementary is closed due to a COVID outbreak.

There are also schools closed in Gibson County, Henderson County, McNairy County and Lenoir City.

It comes as the state still has not found a way to be more transparent about when COVID first emerges in our schools.

"The best point of contact right now is the school district itself," Health Commissioner Lisa Piercey told reporters.

"The school district is empowered from their board attorney to share any information they want to do."

The health commissioner said her department still is not clear that it can legally disclose when those cases first emerge so that parents can keep a closer eye on their children.

But, in some communities, districts are only telling families if they have documentation that their children were within six feet of an infected person for 15 minutes or more.

Many experts say the virus can actually spread much farther in a closed classroom.

So how are other families supposed to know?

Piercey's advice was not very promising.

"If the school board and the school itself doesn't want to disclose that information, I would suppose then that the other information channels are less official - through social media and word of mouth," Piercey said.

"There would not be any other official source of that at this time. Those are exactly the avenues we are pursuing."

Recently, NewsChannel 5 Investigates asked the commissioner if the state was asking federal regulators for permission to disclose such information.

She said they were not.

But now, both she and the governor say they are having those conversations.

As to how long it might take to get answers, they said, it could still be two weeks.

It appears that schools around here are open. Coming back from the feed store yesterday I saw a school bus dropping off kids. When I drove by the school in my town there were kids playing outside. None of these kids were wearing the silly masks or "social distanceing". It all looked normal.

My personal opinion I think it just depends on the area Arctic. Right now certain parts of Tennessee are somewhat of a hot spot. By the number from the health dept (if they can be believed) it looks to be going down.

Trump Signs Executive Order Giving Funds To Students Without Access To In-Person Learning

Trump Signs Executive Order on Expanding Educational Opportunity Through School Choice / STATEMENT FROM THE PRESIDENT
By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and in order to ensure the education, health, safety, and well-being of America’s children, our most essential resource upon which the future of our great Nation depends, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Purpose. As part of their efforts to address the public health challenges and uncertainties posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, State and local officials shut down in-person learning for the vast majority of our more than 56 million elementary and secondary school students beginning in late February and early March of this year. Since then, however, our Nation has identified effective measures to facilitate the safe resumption of in-person learning, and the Federal Government has provided more than $13 billion to States and school districts to implement those measures.

The prolonged deprivation of in-person learning opportunities has produced undeniably dire consequences for the children of this country. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has stated that school attendance is negatively correlated with a child’s risk of depression and various types of abuse. States have seen substantial declines in reports of child maltreatment while school buildings have been closed, indicating that allegations are going unreported. These reductions are driven in part by social isolation from the schoolteachers and support staff with whom students typically interact and who have an obligation to report suspected child maltreatment. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has also found that school closures have a “substantial impact on food security and physical activity for children and families.” Additionally, a recent survey of educators found student absences from school, including virtual learning, have nearly doubled during the pandemic, and as AAP has noted, chronic absenteeism is associated with alcohol and drug use, teenage pregnancy, juvenile delinquency, and suicide attempts.

School closures are especially difficult for families with children with special needs. Schools provide not only academic supports for students with special needs, but they also provide much-needed in-person therapies and services, including physical and occupational therapies. A recent survey found that 80 percent of children with special needs are not receiving the services and supports to which they are entitled and that approximately 40 percent of children with special needs are receiving no services or supports. Moreover, the survey found that virtual learning may not be fully accessible to these students, as children with special needs are twice as likely to receive little or no remote learning and to be dissatisfied with the remote learning received.

Time to have the educational money follow the student. Then you will see schools open up pretty darn fast. You will also see an improvement in the quality of education, once a parent can afford to choose to have their children educated away from public school system.

Polis said he was going to open schools in Colorado again in mid-January, but now he’s wavering because we had a positive case of the UK strain of Covid here. Parents have had enough. Most just want their kids to go back to learning in person. Interestingly enough, the teachers unions and school districts are putting the heat on Polis to get kids back in school as well. We will see who wins that battle. Online school has been a huge joke. We pulled our kids out in December to homeschool. I figure anything we do has to be better than the YouTube videos their teachers are feeding them. So many kids are going to be so far behind.

Three of our grandkids live with us. The two highschoolers are dying to go back. They could go two days a week through November, and then it closed again. The elementary school granddaughter has been going in person all along. Only 8 in her class, 25 in the school, the other 30 students that were in the school are meeting in the Mennonite church down the road. Thinking the high school will open again so that they could at least go a few days a week. We are very rural, with a small population of students, so it's possible.

One of our grandkids HS science teacher recorded himself over the summer teaching a whole school years worth of lessons. When they're in class, they watch the recording with him standing there. Otherwise, it's on the tablet for school at home.

They want them to stay home and stare at a screen all day and the schools will still collect the money from the govt.. I wonder where the money goes when they are saving money on: school nurses, janitors, maintenance, sports programs, after school programs, air, and heating. Some states had parents sign paperwork stating that they would not watch what their students were being taught online. Some states have mandatory welfare checks of students at home so that they can see what's going on.

as far away from "civilisation" as i can get.
In my neck of the woods, the schools closed completely last March. The teachers, principals and administrators all had a 5 month PAID vacation.
teachers over here when we had the lock downs had to do online teaching instead, that means personal lessons not a class and it took twice as much work(stepdaughter and step gran daughter are both teachers so I know for a fact) a paid holiday IT IS NOT. they were doing 80 hour weeks and only paid for 40 or less.
