  • I got three words for you.

  • Children will die.

  • Seriously?

  • You want to open schools, sir?

  • This is a death trap.

  • That's a load of crap.

  • Listen, quarantine's over, the kids have to go back.

  • Do you know how hard it's gonna be to socially distance 30 kids in the classroom?

  • That's a joke.

  • And you know those school bathrooms don't even have soap.

  • That's a frightening vision.

  • And something ain't right with it.

  • How come you politicians have your kids home schooled, yet you want to sacrifice the health and life we're living?

  • That's like being pro-war.

  • But no, no, no, you're not the one fighting it.

  • Don't worry.

  • Only a few kids may die.

  • That's life.

  • We can't control it.

  • Plus, it's proven the kids are strong and are protected from COVID.

  • That's not true, sir.

  • Don't play that political game.

  • I know you expect us to surf the second wave, but this study out of South Korea says that children are affected exactly the same.

  • Plus, all kids aren't strong.

  • Some have obesity, others breathing trouble.

  • And none live in a bubble, which means if they catch the virus and take it home, their parents and grand parents are in trouble.

  • Yeah, but virtual learning is not ideal.

  • Kids just don't learn like that.

  • You're sad.

  • Hospitals are overrun, borders closed.

  • But you want kids to go to school and play Corona tag.

  • You know, it's funny how all of a sudden you care about education.

  • See, I think it's really about cash.

  • Because no cap, I learned more watching YouTube videos than I did in class.

  • So don't tell me school is perfect, because that's bogus.

  • I'm not trolling, but I knew a kid who graduated high school and couldn't even read his own diploma.

  • Oh, grow up.

  • I'm serious.

  • See, classroom learning is equal or worse, to e-learning.

  • And if you don't believe me, check out this study that concluded classroom learning is equal or worse, to e-learning.

  • Yeah, but kids need socialization and physical interaction, okay?

  • Seriously?

  • Seriously? School tells kids to sit there but down and don't talk to each other for eight hours a day.

  • You call thatsocialization”?

  • That's not smart.

  • Plus, how are kids gonna interact when they are 6 ft apart?

  • Okay wise guy

  • What about our great teachers?

  • Their presence is needed.

  • Now that I can agree with.

  • Yes, teachers are the most important factor for a student's success, which is why you should treat them with more respect.

  • I mean, they give their best.

  • Yet many have to buy their own supplies because you refused to invest.

  • And once again, during COVID, they are the ones you neglect.

  • See, you're giving them the short end of the stick.

  • God forbid but, are you gonna pay the medical bills when these great teachers get sick?

  • I mean I get your points, socialization and hanging with friends is needed for a healthy mind.

  • And the only way I think physical class could work is if we have it outside.

  • Outside?

  • Yeah, outside.

  • You know, kids do learn better when they're actually alive.

  • This guyDon't even try.

  • Do I look like a fool to you?

  • No, no, of course not.

  • I know you want more business as usual, you love the fact that prisoners get more time outside than students do.

  • But see, outside learning is what they did during the Spanish flu and tuberculosis, too.

  • Still social distance, follow all protocols for prevention, but give them fresh air and vitamin D, which are proven to boost the immune system.

  • So here's what I conclude - give them 1 to 2 days a week in an outside classroom.

  • Those who need hot meals any day should be able to pick up the food, but the rest of class will be online.

  • Now, when in class, follow all the guidelines like masks and/or face shield which protects the eyes, and get creative.

  • Let students police themselves for every day of safe behavior, they get points.

  • If they get enough points that get, I don't know, a week vacation.

  • Here's some protocols from other countries that I want you to read and understand because one life lost is one too many.

  • Let's leave nothing up to chance.

  • I know you have other interests involved, but even you shouldn't want this blood on your hands.

I got three words for you.
