I read that in Germany’s largest district kids are completely cohorted in groups of about 20 during the school day and that if one kid goes down then the class and teachers are in quarantine.

That’s laughable compared to how things are going around here.

Saying “well Europe is in person” is quite a stretch of you are arguing that we can too.

This is exactly how my district's middle and high school is doing it, only the cohorts are 10 or fewer in size.  Also, they are going two days a week with remote the other three. KC area school on KS side.

yeah this is a district to district issue. some schools are just overpopulated and it is not even remotely possible to do this.

That's a pretty good way to explain it.

Prioritizing schools would also mean providing more resources to open safely. The main way we can help schools is by controlling community spread. But making teachers and others feel safe at school is also key. This means requiring masks, yes, but also providing good PPE and, ideally, improving ventilation. It means better testing and screening — both symptomatic and asymptomatic — and money for substitutes. Financial woes have always been a part of the landscape of public schools in America, partly because this isn’t the first time we failed to prioritize them. This has made it worse.

Probably helps that Europe didn't have the Leader of the Free world screeching about the fake news china virus for months on end.

I supervise a school that does exactly this, well did. In the 6 weeks that they ran this plan no student or teacher missed a single day of school.

Those schools in Germany are staying open during the latest spike, we aren't.

Olathe, Shawnee mission and blue valley are absolutely not doing it like that.

Tell us what's happening, I'm certain no one will invest 90 minutes to find out. Got a specific time stamp?

just watch the first 2 minutes of this dude.

5 ish parents don't want their kid to wear a mask at school.

The Kansas state Senate passed a law that requires boards to have a hearing for parents. (most districts already have a process for this that doesn't require a hearing but Ks senate gonna ks senate)

meeting on Monday or Tuesday got cancelled because some guy in an infowars hat refused to wear a mask.

Meeting is held virtually the next morning.  Old dude is raging because he doesn't know what's going on and thinks they are trying to violate his rights etc.

first 3-5 parents request a continuance because they want council present.  Arbitrator says they might not be given a continuance because the law is vague and the district already did their part by providing a meeting, if parent chooses not to present their case then he can't promise another time. (PS, they can just fill out  and turn in the request paperwork)

Old boy gets up at the end and turns out his grandkid isn't enrolled in blue valley at all because they refuse to vax him but he takes up like an hour of time to argue and "cross examine".

PS, due to the state statute the districts have to pay the arbitrator for their time.  This was Blue valley

some dad in Olathe showed and they explained to him how to make a written request for mask exemption and that they've had that option all year.

Well I did watch it and I will time stamp it for anyone else who wants to. I would strongly recommend all of our attorneys, anyone legal adjacent, or anyone like me who regrets not going to law school. If you're none of those but love /r/PublicFreakout, then you should watch too.

So the guy losing his crap is an attorney who is representing his wife and his school aged son. Pretty sure he has a pending lawsuit against the school board and he's only there to try to trip up the school district. Dude is the poster child for conflict of interest.

Frankly, the guy is an bad person and he's an idiot. How does an attorney not know the difference between a court hearing and an arbitration?

Anyway, the time stamps.

0:00-3:00 arguing about his lack of knowledge of technology

25:00-48:00 his testimony, dude is a complete anti-vaxer, anti-mask loon

1:20-1:37 his "cross examination" of the district which is composed of him not knowing the rules of the proceeding and just clumsily trying to trap the district into a FERPA violation. Also completely doxxing his own wife and kid. I hope for the kid's sake he's like in 2nd grade, otherwise he's gonna need to move.

Judge ruled that all the recent mask challenges have no merit because the challenge had to come within 30 days of its creation which has looooooong passed
