Teachers Send Mock Obituaries to GOP Governor In Protest of Schools Opening Back Up

The following article, Teachers Send Mock Obituaries to GOP Governor In Protest of Schools Opening Back Up, was first published on Flag And Cross.

Iowa’s Republican governor has made clear that schools must have in-person attendance at least 50% of the time. Meaning, kids are going back to school in the Hawkeye State.

The exception would be if there’s a 15% positive COVID-19 test rate in a given county.

Because of this, teachers are ticked off. To show their displeasure, they decided to do something extremely silly.

Makes you wonder, did any of these liberal teachers attend a protest smack dab in the middle of a pandemic? If so, why would that be okay but re-opening schools is such a big problem?

From ABC News:

A group of Iowa teachers have sent their own mock obituaries to their governor in hopes she’ll revisit plans for reopening schools.

“I’m very scared,” 7th grade teacher Kerry Finley of Iowa City told “Good Morning America.” “Are we going to wear scrubs? Are they going to amend the dress code? If we are going to do this, we are going to have to do this the way the hospitals did. We need training. We can’t just say, ‘OK, go back.'”

CONTINUED:

Finley is one of several educators who wrote their obituaries after art teacher Jeremy Dumkrieger shared his own obit with the local news blog, Iowa Starting Line.

In the article, Dumkrieger calls on teachers to email their obits to the office of Gov. Kimberly Reynolds.

“The teachers” are wanting schools not to re-open? And are they also for their ‘paycheck’ to continue coming while they don’t work?
