Hard to see so much focus on DEI in the curriculum and mandatory parent teacher training at schools when life and death problems are front and center...How on earth will inclusion occur if people are afraid of catching the virus? If I were a head of school, I would first figure out the home situation of students on aid and step in where necessary to ensure the safety and security of the student and his family including arranging transport to school to avoid subways where appropriate. Patronizing? Perhaps, but I would argue, beneficial for everyone for the child to re-enter the school on par with his peers...On the other hand, people are talking about the contracts that families are being asked to sign to do in-person learning at school. They complaining about being asked to limit exposure to other families during the school year for the protection of the school community. From what I have seen and heard, the people complaining are the families with means - many wanting to travel on vacations and have their children enroll in travel sports and extracurricular activities. I would argue that the school should also ask for the right to do regular check-ins on these contracts phone calls home visits etc - equally patronizing but serving the school community bc these families often think they are above the rules.
