The kids should give the parents a failing grade on this one.
Children are carrying a heavy burden put on their shoulders by adults who are unable or unwilling to speak up on their behalf. Put there by some of the same adults who are only too happy to use ‘think of the children’ as poker chips in pushing political agendas.
From the very beginning, children have been the very lowest end of the bell curve for risk of either receiving or transmitting the Virus that Panicked the World. But since the world was hellbent on building our ‘slow the spread’ methodology based on some high school kid’s science project, we closed them anyway.
Now that teachers have (grudgingly) returned to the classroom, are children getting back to a normal school day? Of course not. They have to jump through some crazy hoops to keep the (alleged) grownups from getting too panicky.
What kind of crazy hoops?
In New York City, some children still have to eat their lunches outside. In December.
“It’s getting a little ridiculous at this point,” said a mom at MS 104 in Manhattan, where kids again pulled apart their string cheese in 39-degree weather Wednesday. “They’ve eaten outdoors every day this week. It’s cold.”
A mom at a Park Slope elementary school said her child has also been dining al freezo for the entire year and began complaining about the conditions this week.
“We’ve heard no plans to bring them inside anytime soon,” she said. “In fact, they are still asking for parents to give the school their Fresh Direct bags to create seating pads. It doesn’t sound like they’re going in.” —NYPost
For any concerned parents looking to raise hell on this issue, the way Virginians raised hell about their school concerns, it’s important to know what level these decisions are being made at. We have that information for you.
According to the Department of Education, school principles are allowed to decide whether or not it’s safe for children to eat indoors due to COVID-19, and some schools in the city are holding lunch indoors, according to the Post.
“The problem is that there is no hard metric for when the kids can go inside,” one parent told the newspaper. “It’s just up to the principal, whatever they decide goes. Hopefully we’re not out here in February.”
…Another Brooklyn-based mother told the newspaper: “It’s already hard enough for a little kid to eat outside while sitting on concrete with a mask on. What does the weather have to be to go inside? How low does it have to go?” — NewsMax
Let’s take a look at the local weather…
Given a choice between letting kids eat in the cafeteria… or even at the desks that are considered safe enough for them to sit at through the school day the kids are expected to sit on the concrete outside.
These decisions are being made at the local school level in New York — and (who knows?) possibly somewhere near you, too.
Parents go out of their way to buy fun snacks for their kids to eat, but how fun is a Fruit Rollup if it’s so cold out that it breaks instead of bending?
If you bring this issue up in conversation, you’re sure to get the ‘believe the science’ objection. Of course, when you remind them that it’s already been corrupted — at least so far as school decisions go — you can expect they will suddenly change the subject.

But if a few dozen parents hammer this issue in a school board meeting, the political fallout in Virginia might be fresh enough in peoples’ minds that they have no choice but to listen.
The left pretends to celebrate ‘strong women’, right? Let’s see how happy they are about ‘strong women’ when a couple of hundred pissed-off moms start raising hell.
In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them. These girls weren’t your typical church ladies. They were holy movers and shakers who upset hell with their God-honoring, faith-filled, lives. Giles’ unique take on these terrific women makes the scripture come alive. This book is real, raw, relevant, and irreverent. Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
