Hell yeah I am! Are there teachers who only work their 185 days and call it a year? Of course. But the "Whoa is me!" attitude from teachers is awful. Try explaining to a parent who's struggling to make ends meet that you deserve more money while you're sitting by the pool in June.

    They are resilient. More resilient than adults. But obviously there's a threshold.

    I would be willing to bet that there are about 25% of public school teachers who do absolutely nothing, or next to nothing during remote learning. (Which is a huge number.) April and May were the most depressing months for me as a teacher and I have no idea why anyone who ever experienced it in the first place would ever go back.

    Has Biden commented on the awful decision from the SCOTUS to allow unlimited religious gatherings in NY? Or is he worried that will hurt his popularity among Christians? Genuine question.

    I think you have an incredibly poor notion of the workload of public school teachers. When I taught public school, you could count the bad teachers in the 80 teacher school on 3 fingers. This is a tired, unsupported trope.

    At least try “Woe is me” first.

    Maybe but it has direct relevance to the matter of Covid.

    I can tell you what I disagree with, and I don’t think this is too political, mods feel free to delete it if it is.

    There is nothing in the NY rules that prohibit anyone from practicing any religion. It just limits how many people can be in a building at one time. Those who launched this lawsuit are asking for a specific exemption for religious services. There is nothing in the constitution that necessitates that exemption.

    Put me on the side of allowing it. Boss has said light political discussion is fine.

    The discussion is pertaining to allowing churches to be open and whether or not it is unconstitutional to shut them down, as the SCOTUS ruling said.

    I agree - there should be a person or person/square foot limit and leave it at that.

    However - there is some gray area on the “congregating” aspect. Critics of the ruling are right - people don’t congregate in a liquor store like they do in a church so perhaps some really thoughtful legislation is needed rather than just a “person limit.”

    Good point on “congregate.”

    This ruling is actually moot because the regulation is no longer in effect. It could effect future regulations, but maybe they can find a way to word them better so that the courts can’t take issue with.
