Trump Wants Schools Open in the Fall, But Teachers Unions Don’t Want to Teach-What Now?

As summer continues right on as scheduled and we draw ever closer to what would be the start of a new school year, the question on everyone’s mind is whether children should actually be sent back. President Trump, as well as several health officials, say they should. However, many teachers and parents are less than sure about that.

On the one hand, we know that, overall, confirmed coronavirus case numbers have gone down significantly in recent weeks and months, thusly, posing a much lesser risk of infecting our children. But the other side of that argument is that the virus is still very much a reality and can even be spread, as there is, as of yet, no known cure or vaccine.

The solution, as we are finding out, is not a simple one.

Obviously, the question should consider what is absolutely the best for the children of America. Is it better for them to be physically absent from school to minimize their risk of infection? Or is the greater risk to have them miss out on much needed educational instruction and social interactions?

If the first, then what do we do about the social interaction and instructional time they are missing?

As the American Academy of Pediatrics recently pointed out, “Lengthy time away from school and associated interruption of supportive services often result in social isolation, making it difficult for schools to identify and address important learning deficits as well as child and adolescent physical or sexual abuse, substance use, depression, and suicidal ideation. This, in turn, places children and adolescents at considerable risk of morbidity and, in some cases, mortality. Beyond the educational impact and social impact of school closures, there has been substantial impact on food security and physical activity for children and families.”

And they aren’t wrong.

Studies show that youth suicides are up, way up. Those with mental or social disabilities are getting much worse. And as the text above mentioned, there is a real problem of food.

For far too many students, their only real source of nutrition is the provided breakfasts and lunches at school. With schools closed, these children, in many cases, simply aren’t being fed. Now, many communities have begun food drives and such for this exact reason. But what happens to the children who don’t have access to those?

The question then becomes, which is more important: a child’s hunger and social retardation or their risk of getting COVID-19 and possibly spreading it?

Neither is it a one-size-fits-all solution.

As I said, overall, case numbers have gone down. In fact, in some areas, there have been less than 20 confirmed cases and zero deaths since the pandemic began. With risks as low as this, why should kids be kept at home, where they continue to prevent parents from going back to work or, at the very least, prohibiting parents from being as productive as possible, as parents are moonlighting as teachers on their off-hours?

Furthermore, worldwide studies show that outbreaks, even in the beginning weeks of the pandemic, couldn’t be linked to schools. According to Science, “epidemiologist Gwen Knight at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and her colleagues collected data before most school closings took effect. If schools were a major driver of viral spread, she says, ‘We would have expected to find more clusters linked to schools. That’s not what we found.’”

Much of this is because school-age children are the least likely of age groups to be infected and/or carry the disease. And in nearly every case of those who do, they don’t show symptoms.

This leads those like Otto Helve, a pediatric infectious disease specialist at the Finnish Institute of Health and Welfare, to say, “Outbreaks in schools are inevitable. But there is good news.” He goes on to explain that because of things like social distancing and changes to daily routines within most schools, “the benefits of attending school seem to outweigh the risks – at least where community infection rates are low,” according to Science.

And both Donald and Melania Trump agree, as well as Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Melania told the press, “Children’s mental health and social development must be as much a priority as physical health.” And that is precisely why she and President Trump are pushing for schools to reopen in the fall.

Sure, there will be exceptions in areas where infection rates are still high. But we can’t let children everywhere suffer just because a few regions have more than the average number of cases.

  1. I absolutely love your blog.. Great colors & theme.
    Did you develop this web site yourself? Please reply back as I’m wanting to create my very own website
    and want to find out where you got this from or what
    the theme is called. Thank you!

  2. I’ve been exploring for a bit for any high quality articles or blog posts
    in this kind of house . Exploring in Yahoo I eventually stumbled upon this site.
    Reading this information So i’m happy to convey that I’ve a very just
    right uncanny feeling I found out exactly what I needed.
    I so much certainly will make certain to don?t forget this website and
    give it a look on a continuing basis.

  3. I every time used to read piece of writing in news papers but
    now as I am a user of internet therefore from now I
    am using net for content, thanks to web.

  4. Fantastic beat ! I wish to apprentice even as you amend your site, how could i subscribe for a blog web site? The account aided me a acceptable deal. I have been a little bit familiar of this your broadcast provided shiny clear concept|

  5. Having been an educator of young children for over 20 years I agree that our very young children and youth cannot be educated property by the online process. However, having be a teacher I’d be very concerned for my health as well as the health of my colleagues since most teachers are 50 years and older and in the age bracket that is more susceptible to the Covid virus. Should a teacher becomes infected are they going to be quarantined? Will their entire class need to be quarantined as well. Many teachers teach more than one class which increases the rate of exposure and infection. Should a student becomes ill with Covid will that require the entire class to be quarantined ? Should a classroom teacher become ill will there be enough substitute teachers to fill in and would they even want the assignment? These are questions that I am not seeing address anywhere.

  6. The teachers’ union don’t want to teach? So what’s new? I don’t think they’ve been teaching for years. They indoctrinate about inanities because they’re jingoistic airheads. The teachers are ignorant, minimally educated, and useless air breathers on the planet. I don’t know what poses the greatest threat to our country, the teachers’ union or the covid-19 virus. I was a public school teacher of science and math in an inner city high school, and I was so disgusted by the teachers’ union destructive policies to the sincere commitment of teaching that I refused to join the union for three years till I was forced. They destroyed the entire meaning of becoming a teacher, and I SAY THIS AS A PERSON WHO IS 100% PRO-UNION. I believe people have a right to unions and representatives who negotiate just interests. But, the head of our Teachers’ Union was a deceptive, liar without decency, integrity or principles – and he was an ex-seminarian. But he will answer to God for the evil he did.

  7. They will have broken their contract. Get substitute teachers who have been wanting full time teaching jobs, fresh out of University with teaching degrees get to start, certify people who dont have teaching credentials but experienced in their field to teach, to fill positions and maybe get a more well rounded education than union teachers. I would think they are “essential” workers. Moms and Dads aren’t equipped to home school AND get their work done that supports the families to continue what they had to do since Spring. It is time to move forward and social distance, wash hands, mask if cant keep social distance up. We all need to NOT be masked up for long periods of time, it too, is unhealthy.
    Let’s use some common sense and start taking better care of ourselves and our children

  8. Teacher’s Unions are just another arm of the DNC. I could not teach in California unless I joined the union. I told them I wanted my dues to go to the Republican Party and was told that was not possible. Now a teacher can designate where dues are to go. Don’t know if that is possible in California since the state is run by a band of moronic barbarians.

  9. Define teaching? The assclowns where no more that an indoctrination centers for the Libtarts, Demon rats, Marx’s and Socialists. We need to take a better look who we hire as Teachers. I don’t care about the 7 pillars of Islam, I don’t care about BLM. I CARE about Reading, Writing, Math, Science, Economics, Civics and History

  10. What has happened to our education systems? I think that the almighty dollar has shaded all of the eyes that are setting the education for our children. What has happened to what we adults used to be taught by American educators? As a child, we did not have to try and fidget what language the teachers are trying to use. Teachers should have good English skills and not some gobble words of multi-language just throughout for children to make sense out of. As adults, we are subjected to that in our everyday language. If we can not find educators that can speak proper English, teach them before they are hired to teach our children. You know, a better idea, pay one parent in each family to be a teacher and that way we would not have to worry about teacher strikes, meals, transportation and for socialism could be handled by the older children on that block and pay them a few dollars

  11. Well this crap drives me to smoke cigarettes.
    1) Kids get sick in school fact.
    2) They recover fact.
    3) Children need an education fact.
    4) Parents don’t want their children “under foot” fact.
    5) Not all children have playgrounds to play on so they play in the streets (Unsupervised) fact.
    6) Teachers are out of work getting paid for staying home fact. Tax $ being wasted.
    So what’s the point in arguing over it.
    Another fact is the virus Pandemic is virtually over as far as masking up goes. Read & Instruct each other as to 1) Coughing 2) Sneezing 3) Temperatures 4) Pain 5) CPR 6) Children’s Wellfare overall.
    COVID-19 symptoms & reactions studied facts & numbers verified with reports IE: Ask your doctor if your mask covering actually prevents you from contracting the virus.

  12. Hey there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after checking through some of
    the post I realized it’s new to me. Nonetheless,
    I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and
    checking back often!

  13. There still are a few older teachers that are doing a good job. Admittedly nearly all younger teachers are the product of Marxist brain washing facilities and can’t teach anything but social studies with an agenda but some have had sound family background and could resist the mental destruction. The NEA a while ago had a meeting where a few dedicated teachers proposed a resolution that more emphasis be placed on basic education. It was defeated and two social studies programs were adopted. If we could eliminate the unions we could then eliminate useless and dangerous teachers. As for the virus risk I think good education is worth the risk.

    1. Can we believe anything by someone named Elmer. You are the one that is brainwashed by a serial sexual assaulter, a lifelong mobster and now a traitor for many reasons as he attacks the Constitution every day and works with Russia to destroy us.

  14. Trump is one delusional and evil mofo and you people who still like his are traitors just like him because he is trying to fix the second election and while he kisses Putin’s butt he is allowing Putin to out bounties on our soldiers.

  15. I’m sure there are good teachers but unfortunately the Union and the Institutions no longer teach they indoctrinate the students. They no longer the history, they no longer teach cursive writing. They teach the left way of thinking. They take young people and will not teach them how to think for themselves. They only support the liberal thought and not how to reach a decision.
    Our country with all its problems need citizens who think for the good of the many and not the selfish ones in power of broadcast media and entertainment media and the news media.
    I support all teachers who want their students to move forward not just become cannon fodder to be used to gain power.

  16. Whomever wrote the above article on opening up schools in the fall is one of the bigggest Morons out thier ! Where are you getting your facts/information from ?. (Your own wishful thinking I’m sure) it’s people like you who want to live with your head buried in the sand & not in reality (AKA the real world) that’s ruining & making this once great land of ours Unrecognizable. Surely you, are from the younger more Entitled Generations of me,me,me& me & I . Parents Are Supposed, to be parents & teachers not just breeders who leave it up to others to teach their children for them ! . I’m sure that’s what has been your life’s lessons & that’s all YOU know but, we need to start changing that misguided so called Parenting style or we are all headed for trouble we will not ever recover from ! .

  17. I agree with you all!!! Their teachings are some of the most absurd and down right Left Liberal agenda. We as parents, grandparents and just plain citizens, can not let this go on any longer. Also, if they can’t teach History the way it was written and carry the American Flag the way it was meant to be carried then they should go teach in a 3rd world country because the USA is too good for the likes of them! I’d rather follow Trump in the USA then follow Biden’s ass too China!

    1. We have to stand up and fight for our children, our Country and to elect our POTUS as he cares! That is why they hate him so because he cares about all of us and our children! He alone stands against their Marxist ways!

  18. IF TEACHERS DO NOT WANT TO TEACH……….MAKE SURE THEY “DO NOT” GET “PAID”……GO TO CHINA……SEE HOW YOU LIKE IT THERE????? OOPS!!!!!!! YOU WON”T HAVE TO……….WE WILL HAVE CHINA RIGHT HERE!!!!!!!!!!

  19. The plan is of course to pay teachers’ union functionaries for no work, so they can march with Burn Loot Murder and campaign for Beijing Biden and whatever black militant woman Soros picks as his running mate. The longer the children are out of school, the more dumbed-down and susceptible to propaganda they will be, and the goal there is to create progressive Children of the Corn ready to take to the streets on behalf of the racism scam and the global warming hoax. They will be the Young Pioneers, complete with red scarves, and the teachers will lead them in revolutionary songs in praise of the new regime and of the “transformation” of the United States into a peoples republic.

  20. They are not teaching our kids any subjects that mean anything other than a truck load of Marxist crap so go on strike. It will be a God send to our children, the one’s that are not murdered in the womb. Our tax money is wasted on these Marxist.

    1. I agree. Dismiss the useless teachers and hire conservative teachers that will do a good job. I know of a Republican teacher in California that was never able to get a teaching job in California at all . You see , the Liberals simply don’t hire conservatives at all .

    2. Amen! Lord help us rid this our Country of Marxist socialist communists in our schools and open our schools for our children who are commuting suicide due to their low communist Marxist ways!

  21. Okay enough with the great website crap! These teachers are all liberal socialist’s and they are just trying to help destroy President Trump along with the democrat party! Actually if I had kids in school today I would either be home schooling them or sending them to a christian school if I could afford it! My neighbor home schools her kids and I have never seen more polite and together kids in my life! This home schooling hasn’t seemed to bother them, they seem very well adjusted and happy. Just think you get individual attention, you don’t have to deal with bullies at school or the clicks of kids who think they are better than you! And you don’t have to worry about school shooting’s! It is a shame that more kids can’t be taught this way I think they would be better off! And they would probably learn a lot more than they would in a liberal public school. What you are seeing now with all these riots and looting are from kids who were taught in these public schools over the last fifteen years. They are rude spoiled brats who think our country owes them for doing nothing! Personally after what I am seeing with these so called riots and how two of them have hit an elderly person I don’t trust any of them!

  22. Just hire replacement teachers who will teach instead of indoctrinate. Most teachers I know today could barely get a real job anyway and as in Philadelphia we have instructors from terrorist groups come in to teach how to destroy our present government.
    The mayor was asked about it and condones it as much of the business runs from the city even grocery stores.

    I was born and raised there in the 60’s and will never go there again.

  23. So, the Liberal Democrat Teachers Union doesn’t want to teach. They don’t anyway. Just don;t pay them, stop the “rubber rooms”, get rid of half of them and start again.

  24. Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was

  27. Teachers. Get educated. Stop being
    1. Stupid. 2. Lazy. Or 3. A socialist. Either teach about America, math, science, etc. or superintendents, hire good teachers. If people had a decent education about our America, land of free enterprise and working people, much of this socialist mess would not have happened. Hire degreed people, lots of us would try, many doing a much better job.

    1. Teachers don’t teach now, they indoctrinate. Parents, learn to teach your children at home. Shut down government run public indoctrination centers. I understand that my children are all grown so I do not really have a “dog in the hunt.” But, in Oklahoma, teachers don’t teach they are only out to extort monies from the populace. Don’t “teach,” stay home, gives the kids a fighting chance.

    2. Anyone who pays taxes has “a dog in the hunt” since their tax money is going towards the schools. It’s absurd to me that the teachers do not want to return to school in the Fall because of the virus. Does that mean we all get a refund on our taxes? NOT IN THIS LIFETIME!!!

  28. This is just a flu. CDC has admitted its numbers include many other deaths ( diabetes, pneumonia, heart attacks, cancer) which raise covid19 death stats. Purely manipulation. Numbers are NOT increasing, deaths either. In fact, dozens of NONMEDIA private citizens, who can think, have taken hundreds of photos of empty medical facilities, non existent funerals, empty covid19 testing centers. The governor of Mississippi is on the right track, just needs education about the fraud going on. Ebola, zika, diabetes, cancer, HIV, suicide, all take more lives yearly.

    1. You are a disgrace if all you can do is call Sheila a ugly name! You wear your ignorance and stupidity by not voicing an opinion but resorting to name calling which typical left wing way!. You are angry as she has told the truth and to a left wing anarchist only the left is right. I hope the Lord touches your heart before it is too late !

  29. Unqueѕtionably imagіne that tһat you said.
    Yߋur favorite reason seemed tο be on the internet the eaasiest factor to take note of.
    I say to you, I defіnitely get annoyеd whilst folks consider worries tһat they plainlу do not recognisе about.
    You controllеd to һit the nail upon the tօp as neatⅼy aѕ dеfined out the entire thing without having side-effeⅽts , other folks
    could take a signal. Will likely be back to get moгe. Thanks
