A little reminder of the media narrative in Jan. 2020: https://mobile.twitter.com/hochbergjason/status/1318780551176753153 JAN 2020 “The first and golden rule of public health is you have to gain the trust of the population, and this is likely to drive the epidemic underground,” said Lawrence O. Gostin. “The truth is those kinds of lockdowns are very rare and never effective.” - WaPo, Jan 2020

What did they think would happen? https://mobile.twitter.com/AlexBerenson/status/1318778826537750528 Four Newborns in Adelaide have died after being denied lifesaving heart surgery because it wasn't available in Adelaide, and they couldn't be transferred interstate because of travel restrictions.

I'm enjoying the visual of President Trump bringing up HUnter's name in his debate answers every time he has the mic and the moderator shutting it off. Talk about the perfect campaign visual for the final ten days.

Biden has no ground game because his people are hiding at home from the virus. They are sending postcards though. Old School.

It's an ankle, right? This is about our local school district and the decision to get rid of tracking in middle school math.

I don't know a SINGLE lib who is sending their kids back in our district. It's tough on my kids that their friends aren't there, but it's good for them too. For lefty Ithaca we had pretty big numbers wanting in person schooling: 67% of the secondary students 50% of the elementary But the alternative ms/hs my daughter just transferred out of was more like 30% of the students wanting in person, just one of the many reasons she wanted out.

This made me laugh out loud. The president tweets about how his rallies have been "boffo" and The Donald has to define the word for some of the youngsters: Someone archive it before merriams redefines it later today Boffo: adj. Of or having to do with white supremacy https://thedonald.win/p/Hrd3RZEB/maggienyt--there-has-never-been-/c/

This graph reminds me of that graph of Republicans vs. Democrats response to the coronavirus and the subsequent breakdown between men and women.... reflects the enrollment of students for Fall 2020.

At this point they're just sitting in a classroom on Zoom with the teachers who are at home - I think. Maybe they have one of their teachers in the classroom with them. Not sure yet but will find out later of course. Ah Porch, I'm so relieved for you. Our girl (9th grade) is going in two days per week and it's been wonderful to see her excited. She's very social. Half of her teachers are in person, the other half remote. All are teaching to a mixed group of in-person and remote students. The teachers are complaining about how much work they're doing, aside from the truly stellar educators who are figuring out systems on the fly. One in-person teacher told the students repeatedly, "I'm so happy to have you here in the classroom." It's a crazy time. I keep telling our girl, "you are learning flexibility and accountability - and you can see with your own eyes what happens when you don't have that in the workplace. Look at your teachers who are complaining to you all non-stop without considering how that affects your performance." The kids figure out quickly how to push the envelope with social distancing and are having a grand time insisting on being outside for "safety."

It seems to me this is a case of too smart by half. Democrats probably did know that Biden was compromised in the same way that Clinton was, and figured they could ram him into office anyway by a continuous marketing campaign to paint Trump as a white supremacist enabler and voter fraud. My guess would be that they figured Biden had the most to lose if the overall corruption became public. Maybe they couldn't control people like Buttigieg or Sanders quite so effectively. Then COVID reared its ugly head and the opportunity to shut down the economy and deliver a kill blow to the Trump Administration was too great a temptation to resist. In doing so, they undermined their own plans for harvesting votes, which requires bodies in person knocking on doors - which they've terrified their foot soldiers from doing. The women around here are sending out postcards reminding people to vote - hundreds of postcards like it's the 90's - but are staying home and mailing in ballots. My daughter just got her birthday card from her grandparents in TN, FOUR weeks after it was mailed. Trust mail in ballots? Think again. The rhetoric to justify attacking Trump supporters is unbelievable. You should see the comments on FB about the Ithaca rally. If you can't afford to miss work or jeopardize your family's livelihood, you won't be at a Trump rally in deep blue areas. BUT you will be voting. There is blood in the water and lots of thrashing.

what you are describing and that PL link has been a topic of numerous webinars as a means to get to Equity with in-person learning for students most at risk and online, which inherently means standardized even if that is hidden with hype about personalized, for more affluent students. Robin, that makes me want to throw up a little. It makes perfect sense. I will say though, that our naive district admin really did advocate for in person learning for any student who wanted it, so they aren't all in on remote learning for the advanced students....yet. Currently, it's NYS's restriction on in-person class sizes (safe social distancing) and the teachers' reluctance to be around students that are the barriers. GenZ might surprise us all by being quite a conservative and creative group to emerge after the dreadful millennials. Daily I hear from my daughter how they are "using" remote learning protocols to buck the system. Their in-person days involve lots of Irish rebellion and begging for forgiveness rather than asking for permission. I rather like seeing their spirit.

https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2020/10/classroom-learning-for-blacks-online-learning-for-whites.php We're starting to see this discussed here under the guise of prioritizing equity issue students to in-person learning since the demand is so high. I recently saw an uncorroborated statistic that only 20% of students learn well online, the rest are struggling and losing ground, particularly the kids from unsupportive homes.

So there was a Trump rally in Ithaca yesterday. I know! And it turned into a mess as a bunch of counter-protesters showed up and got physical and menacing towards the Republicans. Here's a write-up: https://ithacavoice.com/2020/10/violence-chaos-marks-trump-rally-on-meadow-street/ The interesting thing is the comments on Facebook. There were a lot of moderate democrats berating the counter-protesters for the violence, with many saying things like, "this is the kind of stuff that drives people away from the movement." I'm shocked and thrilled that people are so angry at the hooligans.
