For most of this year, we heard lots about how “parent rights” were being trampled by schools that were trying to keep hidden the many nefarious things happening in classrooms. The high-volume screaming for “transparency” was the disingenuous center of the recent elections in Virginia.
For some reason, I find news that teachers have now been declared “essential workers” by the Department of Homeland Security amusing. Not too long ago we were being told that all of us would soon be replaced by Google, YouTube, and artificial intelligence.
I guess the concept of taking school entirely online didn’t turn out to be all that attractive.
