Keep the schools open. Yes children are very poor at social distancing. But some parents are very poor at responsiblility, and it is their children who will be wandering round the streets, like the boys I encountered during school hours yesterday. And these children will continue to wander, even more so if they are not in school. Sorry teachers, I know most of you do this job out of love as well as it paying you. Bu...

Don't need the internet to educate children, we pulled ours out of school. We do simple maths, and writing with them at home and reading. But you would not believe it if I told you but we use pencils and paper.

Children have the most effective way of spreading viral diseases and they do not understand “social distancing”
Home schooling is a must until this bitch is beaten.

The teachers are talking of going on strike. Will they have the audacity to expect to be paid when they are REFUSING to meet the obligations of their "contract". If they refuse to meet those obligations then they should forfeit their entitlement to remuneration AND centrelink and ALL other benefits because they have theoretically QUIT their job!! EVERY action has consequences!!

I respect your point of view and am not sure how "in touch" you may be within the schooling systems at present. I would just like to add that my wife has just retired from more than 30 years of teaching Primary and my daughter is Head of House in an elite 0-12 Private School where parents are fairly affluent and demanding.
Having said this, I have seen first hand as an observer, mothers chas...

As all the states are now in lockdown, I feel that all families should act in the same manner and shut schools as these environments are disastrous for spreading colds and flu's etc.
The big question is that Parents should have a reality pill and not treat schools as a glorified Daycare Centre or a safe haven to dump the kids in so it doesn't upset their own social life. If kids are t...

Did you think that they treated them as a day care centres a year ago when the situation was totally different? I don't think so! They sent their children to school to have teachers do exactly what they are "contracted" and "PAID" to do - educate them. If they don't like doing the job that they're doing, why don't they simply quit because they DON'T LIKE THE JOB and do s...
