  • Teachers are Not transactional like the new Republicans. Their nature is to interact with their students, and we must acknowledge and assist them in this essential American activity. Millions of our students respond to the subtle positive responses that take place in a face to face encounter. Even position within a classroom or classroom size can make all the difference in the world regarding student success. And student success will eventually translate into success in their lifetime careers. As we used to say, WORK SMART. Right now (courtesy of Trump), there are still enough foolish people in the country to want to avoid vaccination. Open up that gap to the teachers. The Trump supporters will either die off or come around eventually, but we don't need to wait or hit them over the head to get them to comply. It's their own life that they've decided to play craps with. Meanwhile, let's behave in a responsible manner toward our teachers and students.

  • The GOP leadership has taken all of their constituents to the mat and though they've won, they won't stop. The GOP is the Tom Brady of corruption. And Chuck Todd is here to give you the play by play.

Other forcing people and fine them. Here's a real 1918 photo. Wear a mask or go to jail. www.history.com/news/1918-pandemic-public-health-campaigns Does the mask help to stop the spread of virus? Yes. it's better.

  • School districts could provide PPE that would be even more effective against all virus strains than vaccination. That mask would be a half-face or full-face respirator with P100 filters on both the intake and exhaust valves to protect the employee and prevent transmission with high quality filters that would be cheaper than disposable N95 masks in the long run.
