Gov. Ron DeSantis and Florida’s Department of Education rightly have continued to urge, and require, all public schools to provide the choice of live in-person instruction for all students. Plenty of attention has been paid — correctly — to the public-health issues involved in opening public schools safely during the COVID-19 pandemic, but one aspect has been mostly overlooked: The question of keeping schools open, like other matters of educational opportunity, is also a civil-rights issue.

It’s hard to imagine a more “broken system” than “education” in the USA.
Remember that the origins of Gooferment Skrules comes from Horrace Mann emulating the Prussian schools.
The true purpose of these “systems” was to create: cannon fodder for the Army, willing morons for the factories, and useful idiots to vote for and be led by the elite!
If the WuFlu is real, and I think that’s still an issue for further discussion, then perhaps the birth of “remote education” is the silver lining.
Could it break the strangle hold that the teachers’ unions have on the politicians and bureaucrats?
One can only hope!
