How Are Working Parents to Cope with Continued Remote Learning? — 17 Comments

  1. There is only one answer to this dilemma and it is the simplest and most effective: defund public education.

  2. Defund the schools is right.

    Let’s build a system that actually benifits our children, especially our COC (children of color).

    For far to long our education system has been teaching our children racist values, such as Black people need help to make it in this country.

    That having a father in your life is only a white thing.

    We need to tear this racist education system down and rebuild it from the ground up.

    Minorities tend to only have access to poorly run government schools.

    That is not equitable, when rich white people can send their kids to any school they choose.

    In the name of equality for all we should give parents vouchers to send their children to any school that they like.

    Only then can the system be equal for POC.

  3. I just checked and all my small violins are broken right now…. boohoooooo whine whine whine…

    how do you think the past Mothers coped?!

    deal with it.

  4. Public Schools today are nothing but gratis babysitting and two meals per day.

    The illegal Mexican and other assorted low income parents are more interested in these perks rather than an education and homework the parents do understand or are too tired to help them with.

  5. GET BACK TO WORL SLACKER TEACHERS or EXPEXT TO BE DEFUNDED By a population that is sick of your BS and overtaxed.

    You’re not living up to our expectations so we shouldn’t have to pay the school portion of our tax bills! Good going-you showed us you’re not essential!

  6. Caroline Ingalls, Harriet Olsen and Alice Garvey worked from home, with children around. 🤓😁

  7. Wait till the parents see the sickoid LGBTQ ‘assignments’ in the telehomework!

  8. Imagine parents explaining “pregnant men” to their children. Ugh! 😮

  9. Parents should consider they are better off now and make other arrangements privately.

    No more dumbing down of classes in order to accommodate the illegals that come here and are behind academically.

    It’s a disservice to the other kids.

    The schools have snowflaked themselves into outliving their usefulness.

    The only thing left is to return all the property taxes we paid to support them.

  10. Vouchers give everyone choice.

    And the ability to get out from under the socialist overpaid union teachers’ influence.

  11. Inner Cook County Roman Catholic Congresspeople (of the past) Roman Pucinski, Frank Annunzio, Bill Lipinski, Marty Russo, Dan Rostenkowski and Ed Derwinski were always touting school vouchers, especially during the Chicsgo busing era. It never happened.
    😮

  12. The Toilet Bowl said: “I just checked and all my small violins are broken right now…. boohoooooo whine whine whine… how do you think the past Mothers coped?! deal with it.”

    “Buuuu. Think about the poor wamen!”,right?

    Anecdotally, fathers are also pulling the weight.

    I did most of it for my family.

    The collapse of the public school system is one of the greatest things to happen in a long time.

    Mothers who actually love their children should be overjoyed that everyone is in the same situation and we can return to a time when parents can be far more involved with their children rather than being cubicle slaves to a corporation.

    Only dumb women who’ve wrecked her family or tried to have children outside of marriage is actually perturbed by these circumstances.

    This is absolutely a blessing. Even the proposed McHenry “Remote Learning 2.0” plan is asinine.

    Nothing more than a plan to protect teachers unions while grasping at straws to preserve the government daycare system after this.

    The proposed strict schedule is a waste of student time when they could be better engaged and happier with a flexible learning plan that is established between the children and the parents.

    It’s designed to keep the kids 100% occupied while the parents are going about their own business.

    Perfect for the mothers who hate their kids.

    Oh, and I got a laugh out of how they do not want children or parents to film or photograph the teachers while they are on camera.

    We’ll see how well that goes down.

    This plan is a total train wreck, simply because the school systems refuse to stand up to either the state or the lazy teachers.

    Let them run it into the ground.
