And for no obvious reason, beside every school, a 45ft refrigerated trailer filled with empty racks, with large signs on the side saying "Pencils".

They're opening schools despite Fauci saying open the schools? What happened to defying the experts and going your own way? Isn't this America?

Golden Brown Delicious: 2 weeks won't make a difference? Hell, I say 2 YEARS wouldn't matter. The public educational system in the US is a complete joke, especially when that 'edyookayshun' comes at the potential expense of death or permanent (?) disability.

I didn't learn a single goddamned thing in public school that was worth staying there for, except perhaps that human beings are, by and large, idiot garbage, and not worth one's time.


Your personal experience is unfortunate.

At the same time, your assertion is moronic.

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: As an NYC parent, I don't get it. There would be two weeks of school left before the holidays. Just do it remote.


A lot of people less fortunate than you don't have jobs they can work from home.

I've gotta agree with them, though. Learning to read and write was the only thing I needed. The internet taught me the rest...including higher mathematics. I could have gone without the cliquey "do you know who their father is" bullshiat from the teachers. And the judgement and complete lack of compassion/understanding when my home life took a dive into the depressing. Oh look a straight-A student suddenly started failing and skipping school, better expel them so they don't fark up our funding.

Resident Muslim: Meh, the spike after thanksgiving should have everyone scared and calling off a lot of in-person stuff.

/caveat: "everyone" with half a brain


The 4:1 R0 is what people don't seem to understand. And it's those 4 people who get it from the initial infected that end up flooding the hospitals. So...4-6 weeks from now, hospitals all around the country that are currently borderline, are all going on diversion or emergency capacity plans. And any area lucky enough to miss out on all the drama will get a second round after Christmas and New Years. Because putting off holidays for a year is just too much effort for most folks.

The kids won't learn anything they can't learn on Sesame Street.  The high school kids can watch Euphoria or something.
