Social Distancing is an Oxymoron. The correct term is Social Demonization or Social Repression. Bandits, thieves and politically correct thugs hide behind masks.

Radically Incompetent Leftwing Professors Fear That Rightwingers Will Discover Their Online Classes and Expose Their Stupidities to the World

Quote:
Due to the virus, most classes are cancelled, and professors are "teaching" online.

They're afraid that rightwing organizations will discover these videos and publicize them, permitting parents to learn how their money is being misspent.
Professors are now worried that the political bias they bring to the classroom will be easily recorded and exposed to the public now that their courses have been moved online due to the Wuhan coronavirus.

"The coronavirus-prompted shift to remote teaching was stressful enough for faculty members before Charlie Kirk weaponized online learning," reported the Chronicle of Higher Education on Tuesday, noting a recent tweet by the Turning Point USA (TPUSA) founder calling on students to share videos of their professors' "blatant indoctrination."

"To all college students who have their professors switching to online classes: Please share any and ALL videos of blatant indoctrination with [TPUSA]," tweeted Kirk on Sunday, including his organization's contact information.

...

Kirk's call to action has caused some faculty members "to be worried," according to the Chronicle of Higher Education, which added that some professors have said that they are taking precautions, such as professor Dylan Bugden of Washington State University, who says that he has decided not to record his lectures.

With regards to the possibility of professors' course material being exposed by students, Jeffrey A. Sachs, a lecturer at Acadia University, in Canada, tweeted, "Simply put, faculty are alarmed because they are paying attention."

Highly Ranked, Wealthy Virginia School District Still Can’t Teach Kids Online After Six Weeks

Quote:
It’s been six weeks since Gov. Ralph Northam (D) closed Virginia schools for the rest of the school year due to coronavirus panic, and the state’s third-wealthiest county still isn’t consistently teaching its nearly 190,000 students.

Fairfax County Public Schools tried to finally roll out online instruction last week, more than four weeks into the shutdown. “That ended in massive technological troubles, possible privacy breaches and online harassment of students and teachers, which led Fairfax to cancel school for several days,” reports the Washington Post.

The district’s technology staff are refusing to take any blame for the fiasco, the Post reported, and their union is demanding that they receive additional “hazard pay” even though students and teachers still can’t connect for learning.
Bold mine.

Mustn't interrupt the narrative...

The Left is Panicking That the Pandemic Will Encourage Homeschooling

Can’t have parents teaching children to think for themselves now, can we?

Coronavirus Vs. The Deep State Educational Complex

Quote:
Post-coronavirus conditions will reveal many dramatic changes in our economy and society. A number of employers who were capable of having their employees work from home will have found that in many cases the situation was more efficient. But perhaps the most significant change will be its effect on education. Recently a Deep State publication printed an article entitled "Homeschooling during the coronavirus will set back a generation of children.” In it an education "expert," Kevin Huffman, claims "The United States is embarking on a massive, months-long virtual-pedagogy experiment, and it is not likely to end well." He has come to this conclusion because "years of research shows that online schooling is ineffective." Of course, this research was conducted by educational "experts" who might have an interest in denigrating "virtual-pedagogy."
Bold mine.

Right. 'Cause a couple or so generations of "progressive" education has done so much for western population as a whole...

Harvard vs. the Family

Quote:
This June, pandemic conditions permitting, Harvard University will host a conference—not open to the public—to discuss the purported dangers of homeschooling and strategies for legal reform. The co-organizer, Harvard law professor Elizabeth Bartholet, believes that homeschooling should be banned, as it is “a realm of near-absolute parental power. . . . inconsistent with a proper understanding of the human rights of children.” The conference has caused a stir on social media, owing to a profile of Bartholet in Harvard magazine, accompanied by a cartoon of a forlorn-looking girl behind the barred windows of a house made out of books titled, “Reading, Writing, Arithmetic, Bible.”
Bold mine.

Alaskan School Board Removes Five Supposed ‘Controversial’ Books From Curriculum

Quote:
An Alaskan school board removed five supposed “controversial,” but famous books from its curriculum.

I’m sure you recognize the books. I’m sure you had to read at least one of them in high school, college, or both.

The Matanuska-Susitna Education Association targeted these classics:

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings – Maya Angelou
Catch-22 – Joseph Heller
The Things They Carried – Tim O’Brien
The Great Gatsby – F. Scott Fitzgerald
Invisible Man – Ralph Ellison

Not a surprise to anyone paying attention.

Study: Historic Drop in U.S. Reading and Math Scores Since Common Core ‘Debacle’

Quote:
“Nearly a decade after states adopted Common Core, the empirical evidence makes it clear that these national standards have yielded underwhelming results for students,” said Pioneer executive director Jim Stergios in a statement. “The proponents of this expensive, legally questionable policy initiative have much to answer for.”
