    From the OP :
    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.
    Seems the Kids Need More Time, with "OJT" Training in the Streets, as Looting, Pillaging and Robbing cannot bee Taught in a Classroom...!!!

    Students attend school 25 weeks per year, by asking for the students to stay home one day per week, teachers are effectively giving themselves another month off. Any profession that gets March Break, Christmas and New Year's, Easter and the entire summer off isn't overworked.

    Winners are not those who never fail, but those who never quit.

    Of course, the teachers aren't going to accept a cut in salary for a shorter work week are they?

    Somehow even though they are paid through the Summer they can't find time to work up lesson plans... .

    Maybe they should required to actually show up to the schools and work on those things under supervision all summer instead?
