The truth?

Yes, teachers should be worried about reopening schools in August. There’s a lot we still don’t know about COVID-19 and we’d be putting MILLIONS of families at risk by allowing kids to pour back into the public school system.

However, that’s not OUR call to make. It’s up to the governors of whatever state you happen to be living in—and if they mandate that schools reopen, then you can bet dollars to donuts that’s exactly what’s going to happen.

The onus for reopening is going to be on the school district’s board of elected officials – and it’s time to see if they’re worth their salt because the government will leave the reopening plans in their hands.

While most states are beginning to get back to some semblance of normal, there are some states that are actually going back into full lockdown.

California – the Liberal haven of the West – is one such state…

Since the Golden State is going back into full lockdown (while ignoring the fact that the massive protests are responsible for the recent spike in COVID-19 cases), it may be a while until the entire country gets back to normal.

California May NEVER Get Back To Normal

Luckily, we have Florida and Texas to lead the way, showing the rest of America how to do things right…

But still, California is back in the news because of the new lockdowns (putting the people back under the government’s boot)—and things may never be the same there because the new demands from local Liberals are simply outrageous.

83% of the United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA) union, a 35,000-member union in the Los Angeles Unified School District, signed off on a policy paper stating what they want from the state before teachers will go back into the classroom…

And you won’t believe what they’re asking for.

29,000 teachers just told the California government that if they don’t institute “Medicare For All,” a wealth tax, or a federal bailout, they’re staying at home indefinitely.

But that’s not even the worst of it…

These educators also laid out the fact that they will refuse to do the job they were hired for unless California closes charter schools and defunds the police.

Can you believe it?

UTLA President Cecily Myart-Cruz said, “It is time to take a stand against Trump’s dangerous, anti-science agenda that puts the lives of our members, our students, and our families at risk. We all want to physically open schools and be back with our students, but lives hang in the balance. Safety has to be the priority. We need to get this right for our communities.”

Look, that’s understandable—but it’s not just Trump that wants schools to open…

There are PLENTY of people that think that schools should be back in session, seeing as very few children show symptoms of COVID-19 – but the goal of keeping children safe is totally understandable.

But that’s not where it goes wonky…

No, it goes sideways when they start making demands OUTSIDE of their realm of influence.

CA Teachers Overstep Their Bounds

The policy paper also goes on to say that police violence “is a leading cause of death and trauma for Black people, and is a serious public health and moral issue,” and that the powers-that-be should “shift the astronomical amount of money devoted to policing, to education and other essential needs such as housing and public health.”

So… police aren’t essential? Who will you call when your home is being broken in to? Who will you call when you’ve car’s been stolen? Who will you call when your neighbor offends you with their “Trump 2020” flag waving in their yard?

Do you see how NUTS that is?

But that’s not where the crazy stops…

Charter schools are ALSO under fire, as the policy paper goes on to say “Privately operated, publicly funded charter schools drain resources from district schools.”

Weird…

So, they’re saying the private sector is a threat to their public existence? But that’s something they should STRIVE for. They too can work in the private sector—and possibly make more money while doing it.

These Liberals don’t understand how the free market works…

They just think that the state should take care of all needs.

This is why California can’t get things right…

This is what happens when you fall under the trance of Liberalism and allow your state to be controlled by Marxist ideas and remove self-reliance.

These teachers can all go kick rocks in flip-flops…

They can all be fired and try their hands in that same free market they detest. Maybe it’ll work out for them.
