Meet Stephanie. She’s desperate for her kids to resume IN-PERSON school next month!! God help her she cannot continue the Zoom monitors and supplementary explanations for one more minute! Except that what if her kids got Covid?? What if she has one of the few children who might end up in the hospital?? Can she put them in that position knowing they might get this virus that COULD cause grave harm to them?? What if the teachers get deathly ill?? What if she gets Covid herself??? Never mind she does not think in-person is the appropriate course of action. But remote learning - they’ll have to get a second computer!! How will her 5 year old learn ANY fundamentals this way?? Will she continue to have to take breaks every 15 minutes to guide her child through the next steps?? If she’s got them home she won’t get any work done. She may as well quit her job. Wait - should she homeschool?? She’s never thought of herself as a teacher but she DOES love a highlighter and school supplies give her a secret thrill. She envisions herself in a movie-like scene, dressed as Washington crossing the Potomac - making history come to life! But then she remembers that her 7 year old still won’t wipe front to back in spite of 5 f*cking years of reminders. And the fact that every time she tries to teach her kids about anything important, they look at her intently, and then respond with a totally unrelated question. Forget it. In-person school is the way to go. Or not.
