No Need to Delay Reopening; Go “All-Remote” instead

August 20, 2020 pm31 12:33 pm

Carranza yesterday threatened to delay reopening… but that would put the 180 days at risk.

So why not do what every sensible district is doing? Make the fall term remote.

The 180 days would be safe.

More and more the call is for full remote. At this point the biggest player left to get on board is the UFT, and then we can put serious pressure on the Mayor and Chancellor, like we did in March.

de Blasio is stubborn, but he bends to pressure.

Come on, Mulgrew, get on board.

    I couldn’t agree more. We’re wasting a whole lot of time trying to do an unworkable hybrid experience and about to do another last-minute remote rush job. Now we’re looking at 9,000 teaching positions lost with state cuts according to Carranza. Even if folks retire, take a leave, or retire, staffing is going to be a major problem going forward. We have our work cut out for us.

      It is so obvious that remote is the right way – pedagogically, practically, politically… I am stunned that there is such resistance, even from our own leaders.

    My school already wasted thousands of dollars in per session paying teachers to be on the planning committee so the principal could submit his plan for reopening. More wasted tax payer money. If the schools do open, is there any way to trace the Federal funds that Cuomo and DeBlasio claim they need?
