New thought about why kids are not in school. I just heard from a teacher yesterday that their school was going to be offering teachers more money than they make in a year for a couple weeks worth of work “to get the kids caught up”. So keeping the schools closed is now giving out thousands of dollars from CARES money to each of these same teachers who have been on “summer break” for over a year. Huge bonus money to do what they should have been doing for the past year! And now all the teachers are ready to sign up for this!
