Private schools are back in session while the public schools are virtual due to covid. Once again the lower income communities are screwed while the wealthy are able to continue as is. Except this time its the kids and this is a v long term impact well past Covis. Can we really not reopen (even partially) schools safely ?

The price you pay for "democracy" and polarized politics run by incompetent politicians who are out of touch with the average working class and whose own kids/grandchildren are in private schools while most of their constituents send their children to public schools.


I love that you put “democracy” in quotes. It’s getting harder and harder to believe in for the people by the people considering a large part of “the people” is being screwed over for interests held above their heads.

Can we not re-open schools safely? Sure we can.

My kids have been in "hybrid" program since mid-August (2 days on campus/3 days remote).

All students are accounted for, alive and well.
All faculty and staff are accounted for, alive and well.
Masks are worn at all times and sanitizers are used.

There were students who tested posititive and they were identified and quarantined. Ditto for students they came in contact with.

Again, everyone is ALIVE & WELL.

The school made decisions and took the responsibility for seeing them through. As simple as that.


Even 2 days would make such a big difference in outcomes to kids and productivity of parents. Really hope the CPD & Chi Gov is able to bring back some inperson education back.


My kids have been going to catholic school for a few weeks. No issues yet. I hope it last all year. They get lazy working from home. The school is taking a lot precautions. Public schools can make it work but those teacher unions complain about everything.


Yes, my point exactly.

Let’s take a hard look at this. We’re comparing private schools that have nice and spacious facilities, kids that come from well of backgrounds so they have good medical care and are well protected, can pay their staff better, have access to technology, etc and are struggling to operate due the substantial burdens covid puts on their staff with a public school system that could barely operate when things were perfect and that has to service all types of students, not just the ones that are smart, fully able, etc.

We should be talking about the systemic racism that public education can’t provide those nice facilities, new tech, well paid teachers, etc., yet you can send your children to a fancy school that affords you this privileged and reality-detached worldview. But, as consultants we really should be in the habit of actually analyzing the problem rather than repeating headlines. Because if you start to analyze differences in infection rates among rich and poor, differences in students per square foot in public (particularly in poor neighborhoods) and private or well-off neighborhood schools, compared the health coverage of teachers among those different places, heck we’re not even looking at stuff like cafeteria density, number of students per school, support staff that can clean, interior air quality or circulation in ancient not well cared for buildings, there is no way that you’d send your kid to a public school in a poor neighborhood or volunteer to be a teacher at one of those schools (unless you have undiscovered and/or undeclared suicidal or self-harming tendencies).

Not sure if “willingness to expose oneself or one’s child to a virus with a 0.5% death rate that’s incredibly highly concentrated among people 70+ years old” counts as suicidal 🤷‍♂️
