my toddler's school had 3 snow days this wk. we kept to our plan to keep her home bc of omicron regardless of what they did. kids enter only their classroom & dont mix w/ other groups. they have hepa filters in every room & the hallway. but i'm agonizing abt what to do next wk.
the teachers wear masks, as do all parents at pickup and drop off. but many of our children are too young for vaccines. some, like my daughter, are too young to even max. i'm still so angry i have to even consider this decision.
despite having spent the first 17 months of her life entirely isolated, my daughter is an incredibly social child. she loves school & misses it. when we went for a stroller walk a few wks ago, she got so excited when she saw kids playing at a nearby school playground.

my heart, my instinct, all of that says don't send her but my mind says i need to finish my dissertation so i can get a job so i can have insurance next yr. that's where we're at. no, the irony is not lost on me.

the teachers striking arent just doing so for their own safety (although that wld be justified too),but they are doing so w/their students in mind. they know in-person learning is better. they wouldnt hv become teachers otherwise. they want to keep kids safe even when govts dont.
i have friends who teach at many different academic levels and every single one of them, some of whom are parents themselves, see in-person classes right now as an unnecessary risk. temporary virtual/alternative approaches will save lives.
it is odd to me that ppl continue to blame teachers and not municipal, state, and federal govt figures who are failing to make schools safe environments.

for the 9 billionth time: the use of "x" & "e" in the place of otherwise gendered suffixes in spanish & portuguese was not an invention of western elites & the more y'all say that sh*t the more u are erasing the work of marginalized groups in latin america u pretend to care abt.
i first saw it used in blogs run by black women in brazil in around 2008/2009 (the "x" had been floating around in feminist spaces for a while anyway).+
the next time i remember seeing it used was by my co-worker - a blk lesbian from the DR - in correspondence w/queer & trans ppl in latin america who were in need of grant funding for programs to support those who were impoverished, abandoned, & being harassed & hunted+
