Confused if parents want schools to reopen or not? I read so many posts here about how difficult it is to work full time and manage kids’ at-home schooling (I can’t even imagine!) so would assume that means parents want to reopen, but at the same time keep seeing a ton of backlash from parents in states who are pushing to reopen due to safety reasons. What’s the general consensus?
Do any real people actually want schools to reopen as it stands now? Im hearing so much about it but it feels like a weird disconnected political thing and not a live humans with kids thing.
*Obv the goal is to get covid under control so kids can go back safely, this is assuming infection rates stay steady or continue to climb
Which other schools have delayed opening F2F until September? Do you think a lot will change in that time?
Thoughts on Cuomo’s decision to reopen schools?
I was listening to part of the Governor Cuomo's daily briefing. A reporter asked him would he reopen schools. His was quite interesting (see comments)
Just curious. Did CDC change its social distancing guideline from 6 feet to 3 feet in order to make it easier for schools to reopen?
In case you never got to see the New York Times article about air quality in classrooms, I’m posting it here for you. It makes some very important points about creating the safest possible environment for students and teachers. 1. Open windows if it all possible 2. Place air purifier centrally 3. Don’t place fans in a way where the air is pointed at people
Have a great year and keep yourself and your students safe!
Real Talk - if your district / state doesn't have adequate safety standards in place by the start of school, will you strike?
I am a 100% YES.
The federal stance is shifting regarding the reopening...”He [President Trump] demanded that all of the nation’s schools reopen for the fall semester — until, suddenly, he allowed for some wiggle room.” The Washington Post https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trumps-week-of-retreat-the-president-reverses-course-as-the-coronavirus-surges-out-of-control/2020/07/24/bf680c2c-cdc2-11ea-91f1-28aca4d833a0_story.html
Huge crowd gathers at Rotary Hill near Naperville District 203 offices to demand area schools reopen.
Hundreds of Naperville-area parents & students rallied Monday to urge local school boards to bring students back to the classroom and the playing field.
Hmm...so all these parents just want to send their kids into schools do die, right? And kill all the teachers and their families too. All out of pure selfishness.

Hi fishes. Could use your guidance on my thoughts for few days. I’m a Bcom graduate with no exposure to tech or IT. I have been working in retail banking and now Im in Investment banking operations. Im thinking of upscaling myself by learning SQL, Tableu. Will These be useful to move forward in my career?
I'm a project manager for a creative team in a non-profit. I'm nearing the 1-yr mark and more and more I'm convinced that the team I lead does not respect me. I don't know if it's because of my age (I'm 25, by far the youngest in the team) and when I'm strict they think it's "cute", being woman (team are mostly men), lack of vision... any tips are welcome!
People often tell me I need to speak up, and I just have a habit of speaking at the volume comfortable to me, but apparently that's too quiet for people.
I know the obvious answer is to talk louder, but it feels weird, unnatural, and performative to speak up. Not a confidence thing, I just tend to talk to people at volumes similar to siri, zoom calls, or thinking out loud, and that's too quiet for people in real life. Have any fellow quiet people overcome similar issues? What worked for you?
Is anyone thinking about jumping from agencies and heading to an analytics position in another industry like Finance?

What could admin do to support you better?
I work at an elementary school where the new principal set up two art classes attending art together. I am the art teacher and I have a para professional. We start with the 2 classes, grade 1-4 in one room, one class sits on the floor, so I can teach and give instructions. Then my para takes one class to the stage where they have tables set up to do their art. What do you think about the legality of this? Can a para run a class alone?
