    So silly that someone thinks an "independent" school isn't filled with Democrats.

    Lol, indeed.

    As someone who has worked in private schools in conservative, moderate and liberal communities, I can tell you the students of the private schools I taught at leaned much more conservative than the public schools of those same communities.

    Geez, $50k, and I think I'd rather go to Liberty (and I don't want to go to Liberty). I bet you had a field day in development fleecing those parents!

    They paid me double my previous job.

    Most of these kids had parents who worked for Pixar or Apple or some money-syphoning bank.

    I got in some trouble for disappearing under a nearby bridge to smoke on my break. I learned of this spot from the security guard and the maintenance worker. Both black of of course.

    I'm a database guy, so I don't do the asks, but handling a $100K check? Like they're giving enough away for me to maybe make some serious life decisions.

    Just curious- what would you do if someone handed you $100k?

    Many educators have been developing online teaching programs for K-12 for over a decade, and they are pretty good, to be honest. They are expensive, and actually require more teachers than in person teaching (it's much harder to control an online 35 kid classroom than a real one, so FCB's claim that going fully online means fewer teachers is wrong) and many private schools are using them currently. There are even some that are 100% online. Here is one example:

    https://laurelsprings.com/about-our-school/

    Maybe not for anyone right now, but they keep improving, and I am betting many parents would gladly shell out $20K to send their kids to one. The one I linked is $9K-13K a year.
    You weren’t ever a public school teacher. I was. You don’t have a clue what you’re talking about. First of all, “It’s much harder to control an online 35 kid classroom than a real one.” What? Lol.

    But let me explain how online teaching requires fewer teachers.

    If you have 3 teachers hired by a district to teach junior English let’s say for in-person teaching, then provided enrollment remains pretty consistent, you’ll have to maintain those 3 teachers.

    However, going online means one or at most 2 teachers can record the same curriculum and provide it to the same cohort of students. And since extracurriculars will be lost in this online brave new world, the district can justify heaping that 3rd teacher’s grading load onto the other two remaining teachers. Voila! That’s how it would work.

    You make some truly unreal claims.

    And private schools are conservative in conservative communities and liberal in liberal communities/large urban areas. A lot of you are speaking from tremendous ignorance on this topic.

    They’re in development. They have tons of hurdles yet. How would you know? History is full of vaccine failures.

    The past ~100 posts for the most part have nothing to do with the COVID-19 discussion, so I've closed this thread. I've asked several times that discussion in this area focus on the pandemic, and lately the discussion spirals off topic into topics (class inequalities is a good example from last night) that belong in the politics area. It wasn't until fairly recently this started happening, but now it's regularly occurring. With everything going on, I think it's important that we provide an area to discuss COVID-19 outside of the politics sub-forum, but if these political, off-topic tangents continue, all future discussion of the topic will be redirected there. I don't want that to happen, but at this point, I'm tired of asking. If it was a single user causing the problem, we'd remove him or her from the discussion, but it's not. The main reason this is an issue is I'm not going to ask our moderating staff to help moderate political discussion - especially when it occurs outside the area we have reserved for that discussion.

    Anyone who wants to discuss COVID-19 outside the politics area is free to start a new thread in this forum, but everyone who participates needs to stay on topic and with light political implications only. If it gets beyond that or is not directly related to the pandemic, it belongs in the sub-forum. If you find yourself not being able to discuss this without veering off-topic and you are unwilling to post in the politics area, then I ask that you sit this one out. Don't ruin this discussion for everyone by continuing to ignore this directive.
