The American Federation of Teachers union boss Randi Weingarten claimed at the union's annual convention that teachers were so terrified of going back to school that they were "quitting in droves" and "making their wills".
The AFT threatened that its members would go on strike if they were expected to go back to actually doing their jobs and teaching in a classroom.
In New York City, the United Federation of Teachers, which is affiliated with the AFT, marched with cardboard coffins and fake body bags. Some union teachers wore skeleton t-shirts.
A Halloween skeleton attached to a garbage bag held a cardboard sickle and a message written next to dripping blood, "Welcome Back to School". "I can't teach from a cemetery," one sign claimed. Another declared, "We Won't Die for the Department of Education."
Despite their claim that they feared for their lives, the march had little social distancing.
A few weeks after the death march, the AFTs teachers took a break from making out their wills to get on buses and travel to Washington D.C. to take part in Sharptons 50,000 person rally.
The AFT was described as mobilizing for the Get Your Knee off Our Necks Commitment March in Washington D.C. which included lots of hate, but few coronavirus precautions.

Pass the popcorn. Maybe we will see a Defund the Schools initiative that springs up alongside the movement against the police.
Am thinking of all the indoctrination NOT happening with the schools closed, and a little surprised our domestic enemies want them shuttered, but since Trump wants them open, they don’t.
No one is holding a gun to their heads. It is their right to work or not. If they choose not to work they should be terminated and not receive one penny of Tax Payer dollars.
Poor little Karens.
Teachers unions using the virus as an excuse to avoid work and participate in the riots.
Panic Porn update.
I would like to think that were witnessing the beginning of the demise of government schools and teachers unions, but thats probably wishful thinking.

I am, in theory, pro-union. But yes, you are absolutely correct there. It should be handled just the way Ronald Reagan handled the air traffic controllers.
Side comment. Its AFT President Randi Weingarten who is popping off there. It worth noting that the membership did NOT elect her, or any of the other top AFT officers. Its all done through committees and delegates instead. For an organization that believes in democracy, their election procedures are quite Stalinist.
But it’s cause they want parents to have to flounder for child care in hopes they blame Trump.
“Teaching,” is one of the softest rackets in the world.
Many teachers are dedicated to the profession, their students and the communities they serve.
HOWEVER, there have always been the slackers, the agenda driven, lazy louts that coast to retirement. The evil of “tenure,” makes it difficult to fire the non-producers.
Don’t feel sorry for them, they make huge salaries when reaching administration levels. This action by the teacher’s unions is sickening. Hypocrites, all.
Coaches, at University positions, are the highest government paid people in most states. That’s entertainment, not teaching.
Considering some of the teachers we now have, parents would do well to have their child(ren) sit in front of YouTube for their readin/writin’ and ‘rithmetic skills . . . hopefully absent of any LGBTQ curriculum nonsense.
Marching with a guy who’s borderline illiterate. Love the irony.
So...they’ll be refunding the taxpayers then? Right?
The parents are in a bind, irreparable harm to your kids whether they are in school or not in school. Homeschooling is the only current solution but difficult for most to execute.
Unfortunately not, the teachers who were forced to stay home and not work have found that very stressful and will require their pay with a bonus.
Commies all of them
It seems all the Antifa scum that get arrested are child predators, career criminals, or teachers.
Didn’t hear grocery store workers crying during the shut down
This ping list is for the other articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)
The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.
