An "administrator" from my sons called me and a few parents today. Asked if school was delayed. Could I (the parent) facilitie remote learning.

Lucky for our parents watsapp group. We all called the administrator back. Said our children would be going to school regardless and we will not facilitie remote learning.

The administrator pushed me saying if one parent can work from home. They should. I politely told the person, both my wife and I work from the office. Prove we don't. I also kindly asked them if during the remote learning period, are the teachers going to lock down? Because if they can go to the pub, go to their friends houses, shopping etc etc, they can go to school and do what they are paid for, and what i pay 6k a year for.

Fair. If they want remote learning the teachers need to be in a bubble - work, home and only allowed out for essential items like food shopping. How is it policed though? I haven’t heard from our schools yet but will be pushing back on remote learning if they suggest it - the last two years have been enough.

As I’ve said previously, if the teachers union have their way teachers will never return to school. They’ve come up with every excuse under the sun including that teachers haven’t had time to be vaccinated yet

teachers have been acting like they are the only ones at risk by working and that they are martyrs when they have to work .

every person who has had to work away from home has been at risk (except outdoor workers) and they have not complained or kicked stones like teachers

My missus is a teacher or primary school deputy principal and I agree she has had fuck loads of time off in the last two years but I think now wants to go back but yeah I reckon they milked it. (She will never admit that) However from her point of view she says there were a lot of parents in the real hectic lockdowns that both worked from home or the mother didn’t work that would still send their kids to school (she was more than happy and did plenty of zoom schooling) as they wanted a break so they could sit at home and watch Netflix and maybe a cheeky wine. Well that’s what they smelt like when they picked them up. I’m not on any side I’m just saying what I’ve heard. This is when she couldn’t get vaxxed yet days and felt annoyed that other government departments are working from home. I get both sides but from experience never give a teacher shit about how many holidays they get not worth sleeping in the other room..

Yeah my missus more than wants to get back to teaching face to face and understands that’s her job if there is not pandemic to do face to face and actually they are all now anyway (well on a six week holiday but let’s not bring that up) but she was happy to do zoom teaching when there was a pandemic (or when it was a new unknown) but her school made her come in and she felt a lot of the parents just were using her as a baby sitter if that’s the right words. Especially when she would learn they were both working from home themselves. She also worked in a school that had quite a lot of quite wealthy families and she knew the mother didn’t work but didn’t want to pull her weight in the real bad lockdowns and rather send her kids in and go get Botox. This was also the days when she couldn’t get vaxxed yet and people thought if they took precautions like not going into work if not necessary you probably could avoid it.

So, @bricktamland - which part is funny to you - my friend having a brain injury or that the likes of you wouldn’t do a better job if you were in the chair?

What absolute idiots. I wish i had twitter to ask the person how he wants to enforce the next lockdown? Or how he is going to force me not to drop my son at school.

These people have their head up their asses.
