Johnny will teach himself on Fridays

Oh, the irony. Who will ever forget when Oregon's governor, Killer Kate, vaccinated the gym teachers and principal's secretaries before the old people, because it was oh-so-important to get the schools open again? Now the Portland teachers' union wants many of its members to stay home on Fridays because everyone's so stressed out being back in the classroom.

And they wouldn't be staying home to deal with the kids on Zoom. No no, the high schoolers will be "self-taught" on Fridays while the teachers "plan."

I'm sure the kids will be teaching themselves stuff on their day off, but I doubt it's what's in the curriculum.

Anyway, it might all make sense in the long run, but it's outrageous for the union to be suggesting it now. Some people's grandmas died so that schools could resume live instruction.
