    Portland Teachers Union proposes students teach themselves from home...

    Portland Teachers Union proposes students teach themselves from home one day per week

    In a proposal last week, the Portland Association of Teachers explained that the designated day-off from in-person instruction would allow them more time to prepare lesson plans while students "teach themselves" from home, presumably online.

    The Portland Teachers Union asked to cancel in-person classes for high school students once a week beginning after winter break to help educators and students "adjust to the stresses" of returning to the classroom since the start of the pandemic, according to The Oregonian.

    I was once married to a teacher, when a teacher teaches the same grade for years, there is no need for additional time off to prepare a lesson plan. Anyone who wants to get ahead in the workforce quickly learns that working only from 9 to 5 won't get you anywhere. Teachers already get enough time to prepare for lessons.

    That is a step in the right direction.

    Now if we can just eliminate the other four days we'll be doing great.

    AND...while we're at it...these teachers in Portland need a raise!

    The new math.

    Your tax dollars pay teachers not to work.

    Only a prog can come up with that idea.

    The reason teachers don't have enough time to prepare lesson plans is because they have no clue about what they are teaching!

    Their degree in education just doesn't cut it.

    In fact, to call them teachers is a bald faced lie.

    They teach nothing, because they are bereft of any subject matter knowledge.

    They all assemble a lesson plan from the internet!!

    NO SHIT, THAT'S HOW MOST OF THEM DO IT!!

    How much do you have to plan to teach kids to hate reading and to be a racist pervert?

    End result. As "teacher" gets a boost from the "teacher" union.

    Brilliant!

    Oh, Portland only hopes that America perceives it as the armpit of the nation ("goals"), while in effect it's the asshole...

    Lead on, Portland!--make us proud!
