Badly Conceived

Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:

The governor’s hybrid school plan troubles me.


 I’ve been informed integrated schools are neccessary so white students get the rich diversity of Black Latino and Asian students in the classroom to share their experiences. Will students coming to school on even-numbered days be carefully selected to balance racial and gender diversity?

I’ve been informed slow students should be mainstreamed with excellent students so they get a social experience. Will the students attending class on odd numbered days be carefully selected to maintain the ratio of geniuses to dummies?

What happens to students who fall behind, perhaps because they lack Wi-Fi, their parents work, they’re unmotivated… Will we still pass them along to maintain progress through grade levels, or will we flunk them?

Troubling

The answer: the same “cracks” into which millions of kids, including a hugely disproportionate number of Twin Cities “students of color”, fell before Covid, just turned into chasms.

The union will wash their hands of those kids (after blaming Orange Hitler and Paul Gazelka); afterwards, of them no more will be spoken.

  1. The Wuhan virus (SARS-COV-2 aka covid) will not have run its course by Oct which is the start of the flu season. The flu will be seen as an intensifier for the spread of the Wuhan virus so by the end of Oct the push from Walz, Cuomo,etc will be to close down all schools until at least the end of flu season which would be March 2021. If the Wuhan virus has not abated by then there will be pressure to maintain the school lock out. It could be at least a couple years before things approach “normal”. Unless Joe Biden wins then I predict “back to normal” by Thanksgiving.

    @Pig: I predict headlines like:

    “Government Revises Numbers, Pandemic Over!”

    “President-Elect Biden Thanks Governors For Flattening Curve”

    We can see a microcosm of it with how the media is holding up Gov. Andrew Cuomo as some sort of COVID-19 success story. But if the virus doesn’t spread because you’ve killed off many at-risk citizens, is that a success story?

    It has never been For the Kids™ after all.
