Open Schools
The L.A. School Uprising – This is an example of what some parents are doing to try to get schools open. I live in Broome County, NY where all schools have been open in hybrid mode since last October with full cooperation from teacher unions. Consider signing the L.A. petition as I did. @UprisingLa @OpenSchoolsCA #OpenSchools

This Woman Tries To Learn How To Drum In 30 Days. This Is How It Went. This is an incredibly fun video by Youtuber Kize Bae challenging herself to learn drumming well enough to play along with Bruno Mars’ “Runaway Baby.” This could be a lesson for people who want to learn anything. @drumeo @pomeranian99 @Lin0087

Back to School COVID Myths – It’s popular to say that hybrid learning is negatively impacting poor students who generally attend schools with lots of discipline issues.
