A reporter asked about reopening the economy and what that would mean for schools. His answer began with a analogous example that our system had three gears - transportation, education, and economics - and that you couldn't open one system without the other. He begins to explain why the three must go together. No transit system, no work. No school, no work because whose going to watch the kids. He continues that for many New Yorkers, the school is who watches their kids during the day. And I get it...we're a necessary component to the system. Are we coming back to educate or baby-sit?

This is one reason some are pushing for year round schools-so parents don't have to worry about child care. Hmmmm.... Are we baby-sitting then? No wonder the public doesn't take us seriously. (I am NOT a proponent of this, by the way, and not just because I'm a teacher.)

The reality is that there is zero social distancing possible in school settings from transportation to the classroom. We are overcrowded and many teachers are in the higher risk groups for the disease. (Not as many young teachers compared to x-ers and boomers). We can’t get supplies to make the classrooms less contagious either.
There does not seem to be a lot of real thought or problem solving going into this situation at all.

Hope this isn’t too sensitive a topic to ask about, but for all those with deeper Indian roots than I do (born in or living in India), can you please explain why some people posit that even having this chat perpetuates the negative parts of a caste system? My perhaps naive perspective is that Brahmins are a caste but also a religious subsect. One can be religious and seek similar devotees without believing in or perpetuating caste hierarchy. Reductive or fair?
