Wild. The teachers unions control the future of our economy.

Teachers unions are solidly progressive. Okay, I get it. But this current demand for education to go virtual only serves no one but themselves. Practically every organization dealing with children say "back to school" is absolutely necessary...and NOW. We hear all this stuff about virtual learning, but talk to a real teacher, not a union activist. They will tell you the minority and poor kids are falling like rock thru the education net. Heck, right here in my little Perquimans County, 40% of the kids do not have access to internet. There is no high speed internet, and very little decent DSL outside the towns. Talked to a mom with two kids who said she had to drive to the library, sit in 95 degree weather with the car running, to get a hot spot for her kids to do one hour of school work. That is total bull crap.
