Back to School with ol’ Roy
Well, Governor Doofus has released his “plan” to get the kiddos back into. school. And it sounds like his grand plan is being bad-mouthed from all corners — parents, educrats, teachers, and politicians. The staggered schedules and various options in the Cooper plan are expected to play quite a bit of havoc in homes headed by two working parents or a working single parent.
One of the loudest voices criticizing Cooper’s proposal is Lt. Gov. Dan Forest:
“Governor Cooper’s long-delayed ‘no-plan’ plan for reopening schools fails our students and has left working-class parents across North Carolina scrambling to figure out how to juggle their jobs and child’s education. The Cooper Administration’s never-ending fear campaign ignores their own science and data on how COVID-19 impacts young people. In doing so, he exposes our children to greater risks – not just falling further behind in their education, but for the mental and physical damage that isolation, hunger, and neglect will have on their well-being, specifically for our low-income and special needs students.
As many other states have already given families the option to either do virtual learning or get back into the classroom, it makes you wonder what is really going on here. As a state, we can protect our most vulnerable children, teachers, and school administrators, while getting the rest of our students back to school in a safe and responsible manner.”

CDC chief said: DO NOT use or quote CDC guidelines as a crutch or decision-making tool. CDC DOES NOT advocate closing schools, period. THUS, the ‘political’ science continues in NC courtesy of Cooper and Cohen. Children’s education and athletics are being destroyed to kowtow to the NEA, politics. IF teachers will not return, fire them. Private sectors employers don’t allow its workers to stay home and be paid. IF teachers feel they are not safe, resign and stay home. NC does not owe them a salary/benefits.
Come on NC GOP…shout, voice stance, publicly of your disapproval! Stand up!
Teachers are complaining about being asked to return to the classroom, and why not? They’re getting paid their full salaries whether any students participate in online learning or not. Make their pay commensurate with student participation and watch them change their tunes! What? Accountability in education?
