Teachers’ Unions Frightened by Implications of Remote Learning

Well, never mind.

Mayor de Blasio announced Monday that New York City schools will be all in person this fall with no remote options.


If you haven’t been keeping up, the teachers’ unions have discovered that a lot of their members are replaceable by remote instructional content from commercial sources.

A lot of schools nationwide tried it this year and found it was not only better content, but way cheaper to pay for these services from commercial vendors than to pay their own teachers to provide it.

The National Guard won’t be able to keep many formerly stay-at-home teachers from their classrooms next year.
