#Gr10English students once again dazzled with their essay remxies!

"Read a novel, identify the themes, create a thesis, find supporting evidence, cite your sources...but DO NOT write an essay".

Remix 1: "Code switching is a problem for Starr, not a solution"

Vanilla and chocolate cupcakes are normal, but the Oreo cupcakes were injected with mayo to make them taste bad 🤢

Remix 2: "The negatives in Starr's life are actually positives"

Rosewater pastries (her dad), dandelion cupcakes (her neighborhood), & lemon juice pea flower tea (mixing communities) sound gross, but taste great! 😋

Grade 3 & 6 Ts…can anyone substantiate the fact that the #EQAO is asking our students if they “like” their teachers. I have heard this is both a survey question and a writing question. Could @Sflecce be using students against educators in preparation for bargaining? #OntEd
Students do not understand the role of a teacher at these ages. They often judge based on amount of homework, assignments, assessments or level of difficulty. They are to young for introspection for their responsibilities in developing their own education.
Even as a survey question, this has bothered me all week. Why is a standardized provincial evaluation asking this?

The boy, who is very good about changes, had too many yesterday, threw himself down & smacked his face into the ground. He knocked a front tooth loose. @MikePMoffatt left work early to get him and I left work early switch off.
Luckily his tooth was already loose and his meltdown wasn’t too big. but I’m honestly scared of what’s going to happen when he’s a teen/ adult. This is severe #autism. There’s a reason at least one parent in a family with #autism drops out of the workforce. #onpoli
His team at school and in therapy are amazing. But it’s hard and getting harder. And it’s hardest knowing gas tax cuts are the focus. #onpoli #autism #onted

🧵Inspired by @cdavidnaylor, a talk with my dog Casper on Ontario's sick school kids.
Casper: How come so many kids have gotten sick this year Bill?
Bill: It's a long story. It starts with the idea that kids have to be in school no matter what because education is important. Image
Casper: What does school have to do with being sick?
Bill: This new Omicron virus can make you sick and spreads much more easily in indoor air when large groups are together a long time in one room. Like a school classroom.
Casper: Can't they make schools safe or keep kids home?
Bill: Parents need to work and want to believe schools are safe because their government said they were with extra cleaning, masks, filters, keeping desks 6' apart, tracking cases, and having the sick stay home.

One of the biggest lies of the pandemic was assuring Ontario that schools were safe, said by politicians at the peak of the January wave and supported by paediatricians and OCBM (Ontario's Big City Mayors). The rest is history. #onpoli #covid19 #onted
toronto.ctvnews.ca/ontario-school…
Evidence continues to emerge that school children (most unvaccinated) were harder hit than adults.

cbc.ca/news/health/eu…
This Big Lie was supported by the removal of evidence gathering that could confirm the extent of the herding towards infections in children, including the abandonment of testing and contact management to identify outbreaks.

#DougFord @fordnation cut $71 from
133 First Nation communities
66 of which face system water inequalities

To add to insult, he only pledged $10M to investigate burial sites at residential schools... there were 15 schools in the province 😶‍🌫️ @AFN_Updates
The mark of the beast is telling
When you divide 10M by 15
You get 666,666.666

@fordnation is a muppet... his handler chose that number b/c of the Indigenous rejection of Christianity/Catholicism... i perceive it as a slight by conservatives & handlers
@GCIndigenous
#DougFord is not a religious man but his handlers are.. the ppl who control @fordnation are to an extent

Doug doesnt go to church but who advised him of $10M was calculated

"This remains a personal decision."
@tdsb you made a decision that increases the risks to vulnerable students and their families. The unmasked around them increase their risks whether they wear a mask or not. This is YOUR responsibility, not theirs.
cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/7…
#onted
@tdsb A mask requirement is the simplest and easiest step to slow spread.
"In Arkansas during August–October 2021, districts with universal mask requirements had a 23% lower incidence of COVID-19 among staff members and students compared with districts without mask requirements"
This is not only a question of hospitalizations of children or the families they infect, it is a question of lowering the risk of uncertain long covid complications, especially for the large number of younger students without a second dose.

🌬🏫Good ventilation reduces the risk of COVID-19 transmission. So what’s being done to improve the air kids breathe in schools? I asked the Ministry of Education, Niagara's public school board (@dsbn) and acting MOH, @mustafahirji, and HVAC engineer @joeyfox85. #OnPoli [1/12]
Prior to the pandemic, public health in Niagara didn’t play much of a role in ventilation, Hirji says. But that changed as “we realized that this virus actually spreads through the air, and ventilation can be one of the tools that stops its spread." publichealthontario.ca/-/media/Docume… [2/12]
People are becoming more conscious about the importance of ventilation after devaluing it for too long, Fox says. “This is a societal issue," he notes, but schools are particularly important since “you have so many kids in one place, and they’re forced to be there.” [3/12]

Just wrote a letter to @OCDSB to implore them to reinstate masks in schools. As Trustees in #Ottawa, they have the opportunity to lead the way for Ontario. Other Boards of Education will follow suit. I'll copy the entire letter as a 🧵, and I sent a copy to @OttawaCitizen #onted
Dear @OCDSB Trustees,
I am writing to you as a family physician in Ottawa, to advocate on behalf of my patients and the broader Ottawa community.
As you know, we are in the thick of a public health crisis in Ottawa, and across Ontario, as Covid-19 is ravaging our population. 🧵
We all agree that schools should have been the last to close and the first to open in every wave of this pandemic. However, @ONThealth public health policy has repeatedly failed to prioritize the safety of our children or our educators. 🧵

.@m_layton asks @ BOH should masks be worn in schools? Dr. De Villa responds that masks in schools are provincial jurisdiction. Her advice is due to being in a period of high covid19 activity we should use all tools. She highly recommends masks in school. #topoli #onpoli #onted
.@m_layton asks why TPH doesn’t have the authority to impose masks in school? Dr. De Villa notes the province has made clear that schools are their purview. They have some leeway at a school level to impose masking.
.@KateMMulligan asks about the PHO report that suggests reimplementing mandatory mask mandates is recommended. What can TPH do and not do with respect to mask mandates? Dr. De Villa notes risk profile will go up and down going forward. Recommends masks now. #topoli

@ETFOeducators : @fordnation lifted the #MaskMandates in schools too soon.

Also ETFO: We're going to have an in-person event in the middle of the 6th wave where masks are recommended but NOT REQUIRED. 1/

#CovidIsNotOver @DisruptingEtfo #onted
@ETFOeducators may as well just tell the public they were lying when they said schools weren't safe. They just destroyed their credibility by holding an event that doesn't exceed the safety protocol of @fordnation which they keep saying is too low. 2/
Best of luck to Educators trying to expose health & safety issues in schools when their own union doesn't behave as though they believe that crowded, indoor, unmasked spaces are a problem during a pandemic.
