Last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) did its part to encourage homeschooling when it unveiled “guidelines” for schools to follow when they reopen. Among the CDC’s guidelines are that schools put tape on the hallways, directing children which direction to walk and how much distance to keep between themselves and their classmates. The CDC also recommends children do not share electronic devices or learning aids. The guidelines even say children should wear masks at school.
The CDC’s guidelines instruct schools to close playgrounds and cafeterias, and to cancel all field trips and assemblies. Instead, students are to spend all day at their desks, not even leaving classrooms for lunch or recess.
The CDC’s guidelines may not have the force of law, but it is likely most government schools will adopt them in order to ensure continued access to federal funding. Schools will do this even though children are at a very low risk of being seriously harmed by coronavirus. In fact, by forbidding children from going outside to play, exercise, and get sunshine, the guidelines actually endanger children’s health. The guidelines also harm children by limiting their ability to interact with their fellow students and develop social skills.
One Good Thing about the Lockdown, by Ron Paul | STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC
The CDC vision of the world of education is making all children into mindless, soulless robots, injected with every possible poison possible. Kids are unhappy in public school now. Just wait until all of these ‘new normal’ changes happen. The rate of suicides will go up. The drop out rate will increased beyond the 50 percent it is now.
This chaos is by DESIGN. Republicans hate anything public, so they do everything possible to make all things public weak, chaotic, not work, and then claim that privatizing everything is the ‘solution’. Of course, that results in disaster because it is all based on greed and selfishness, not sharing anything.
Republicans want to make all education private, or homeschooled, so that they can PROFIT off of kids in all ways possible. This pandemic is taking them there. On top of that, this pandemic and dictatorial lock down will devastate public financing of all kinds, which plays right into the hands of Republicans again.
