Have no time for people that say teaching is an easy job.

I have a daughter who's a teacher and she does not have it easy. Long days and work doesn't stop at the 5pm whistle. You get home, and you mark and prepare for tomorrow.

Wrong answer yet again unions.

All children and students must go back asap. Yes it will increase infections and yes it will increase deaths (but not by much thanks to the success of the vaccine roll out) but this is a calculated risk and is WORTH IT for the future opportunities of 15 million young people.
So people dying is worth it? You heartless Tory b astar d. I hope you catch the virus and suffer. Removed
Teachers - little hitlers when they cannot get their own way, they hate being told by others what they can or carnt do. Suck it up buttercups and get in line and wait your turn. Removed
Your use of English show you had many difficulties at school. However, using a term like "hitlers" (sic) is extremely offensive. You can say whatever, but you need not to use such an offensive term. I am surprised the moderators passed it. Removed

This sector (Can’t call it a profession any more) has become a haven for feminists and woke culture.

Teachers & the unions are having a laugh. They are not in a high risk profession, they are not working in hospitals or care professions.

Maybe your GP is working from home ?

I am a GP and have worked throughout the Pandemic from our Practice - we have never been closed and have seen patients face to face from Day One. We have been in Nursing Homes and patient's own homes caring for both Covid and Non-Covid palliative patients and also non-terminally ill housebound.

So schools are safe whereas indoor shopping venues, pubs, restaurants et al are not.

I think schools returning will cause a big spike again in covid cases, as it did the last time schools returned.

But teachers seem fair cannon fodder and the coal mine budgey for this 'experiment'.
At the very least no school teacher should be in a classroom without both doses of vaccine, and jab the kids too
Young don’t suffer. Grandparents been vaccinated. Get back to school you bunch of lazy teachers Removed

I recall receiving a 60 ponds fine for taking my autistic daughter out of school for 4 days for a family holiday.
The snotty letter stated a child’s education was more important than anything (paraphrasing) along with how much just mission 1 session delayed their education.

Funny how they’re perfectly happen with them missing months because their unions say so.

A Union's job is to look after the wellbeing of their members. If schools are safe, the Government must expect to be sued if any teachers get infected and suffer ill health.

I don't really understand why teachers couldn't have had the half vaccine. It would have delayed the pensioners, who are fit and healthy by one day. Why are they so selfish that they can't sit at home for one more day?

The statistics may or may not be correct, but if you're going to 'force' teachers to be close to students, they need the reassurance of a vaccination to do their job properly.

My wife works in wine retail. During lockdown she works 10 hour days 6 days a week to facilitate all the people getting pissed. Which resulted in me doing all the childcare for a 2 and 6 year old, along with everything else associated with that, while still trying to keep my self employed business ticking over. Yes teachers work hard but so do millions of other people without the plaudits..

Quite a few have done just as you say. The children were very close to adults and coughing and sneezing as well as shouting and even singing right up close. Post maternity leave teachers have to go through every strain of bug that is going around until they are back in the flow. They are not immune.

Teachers are about as useful as BBC newsreaders… Trotting out pre-prepared lines with left wing bias.

Do the unions have the slightest idea how much their scaredy cat whinging is making people hate teachers?

When I taught in schools I never joined any union because I didn't want any of the stigma associated with them to rub off on me.

Teaching unions are a good teacher's very worst enemy.

Someone please explain why vaccines are being promoted and Ivermectin is being suppressed when there is very compelling evidence that it dramatically reduces hospitalisations, deaths and transmission? That alone should have the population challenging what is transpiring.
Money and control and a lack of understanding that a virus is a molecular parasite (GCSE science literature) hence why ivermectin is so effective. People don’t want solutions but hysteria. Removed
