Schools: Can we have funding for PPE, cleaning supplies and extra staffing for cleaning and distancing?
UCP: You have the flexibility in your budgets to pay for it
Schools: Um, there were cuts
Schools: Yes, there were! We had to cut hundreds of staff!
UCP: You were fully funded
Schools: We got millions of $ less!
UCP: No, you didn’t.
UCP: Because we said so. So that makes it true.
Schools: So who will do the extra cleaning?
UCP: Teachers will be expected to clean their work space.
Schools: And teachers are going to get sick and need replacements.
Schools: That’s going to cost a lot!
UCP: So? You figure it out.
UCP: That is what we said.
Schools: How can that be true?
UCP: Because we said so.
