Teachers seem to be fighting going back to the classroom more than office workers. I guess they don’t want to get up early either. Those who in the past argued that students need that one-on-one attention are now saying that virtual learning is just as good.
I can understand that. In person, you have to deal with troublemakers and send them to the principal’s office. On Zoom, you just eliminate the bad kid’s image and all is right with the world again.
Hey! Don’t get me wrong. I’m all for distance learning. If we keep the teachers at home, we can quit spending taxpayer dollars to build schools. In fact, we might be able to renovate what school buildings we have now into low-cost housing projects to help the poor.
Maybe we could also cut salaries if teachers work from home. After all, they have no travel or clothing expenses if they work virtually. And we could eliminate busses. We could save taxpayers a lot of money.
Yep, you’d have to be an idiot to want to go back to the office or the classroom. Give up golf and pickleball and trips to Walmart in the middle of the day? Fighting traffic and actually working? Who wants that?
COVID has become a valid excuse for anything and everything. Why are you playing golf on a Tuesday morning instead of being at work?
