Mixed Emotions Over Continued School Shutdowns

Continued shutdowns of schools across the US have caused an alarming decline in learning. In St. Paul, Minnesota, 40% of public high school students are failing; in Houston, 42% of students are failing at least two classes; in Fairfax, Virginia, there has been an 300% increase in middle school failures. Remote virtual learning on computers is not working. Special needs students are paying the highest price as they cannot get the extra help they need. Teachers’ unions have lobbied to keep schools closed. Joe Biden said that it will cost $150 to $200 billion to reopen schools across the US. [A counter current to this, not mentioned in the article, is that keeping kids out of the radicalizing influence of public schools has a bright side in that illiteracy is better than radicalization. Homeschooling is on the rise, and that may be the ultimate solution.] -GEG

He warns that this policy may spread to other Democrat-run sates.

Another rare benefit from the coronavirus fiasco is that the government monopoly on education is being chipped away. The idea that only a centralized government can accomplish the education of our children is ridiculous. Our own four kids are attending a private Christian school for IN-PERSON classes despite our county being in the dreaded “purple” COVID category. Predictably, no one has died of any cold or flu as a result of our reckless desire to educate our kids.
