A quote from a parent in the article: "We expected the Cherokee County School District to keep our kids safe. To take precautions that ensure their safety. And it's not being done," she said. Where did she think the funds were coming from to do that? There is zero money for increasing staff or increasing the number of classrooms to properly socially distance. 🤦🏼‍♀️ People really have no clue what schools are like and how we get funded.

Several schools all around my district have opened up, then promptly closed, due to students and/or staff attending school while being positive for Covid-19. One district has to shut down due to a student returning to school a day or two too early after being quarantined. The student's parents stated they 'lost track of the days'. 🤨 I'm honestly worried about how this is going to go.

Our school starts in a week with f2f, no mandatory masks, sports practice, teachers not been social distancing, and a positivity rate of 12.1%. I was a scientist (Bs & MS in Biology, PhD in another field ) prior to becoming a science teacher, but my questions have been discarded because I’m a Ph.D. and not an M.D. Well, Fauci and Birx aren’t M.D.s either, they are Ph.D. Such disregard for science in our country. I don’t get it.

Our county just topped 10% and is F2F with very spotty counter measures. It defies reason.

So, we are going to have a country with quarantines happening often, schools shut down, teachers and students ill, and how are the students supposed to receive equal education across the country?

I think that schools in certain states are being given few options if they want to continue to receive state funding. Some are following the lead of the federal government. 🤬

Our local health departments are run by nurses. There’s no one qualified to make these decisions in rural areas.

Fellow Auditors, Since we all are aware that there has been a sudden pay rise of 20-30% in recent past (6M - 12M) specially for experienced staff to Manager level due to acute shortage of resources at ground level. Hence, I sometimes wonder as to who has borne all this extra cost so far. Is it the Equity Partners or the Client 🤔 In case Partners, than I really think that even though current hot market might have boon for the most but absolutely nightmare for the Partners group.
