BCPS gets a D for being dysfunctional

This is an interesting one, folks. Hopefully someone can explain this to us.

This week, the Baltimore County Public Schools will be more dysfunctional than ever as they deal with the latest surge in COVID-19 cases.

According to a WTOP.com article, on Monday and Tuesday:

  • Some students will be virtual
  • Some students will have asynchronous work to complete

Then, on Wednesday:

  • Some students will be back in the classroom
  • Some students will take classes virtually

Make sense? No?

It doesn’t make sense to us, either.

Why would the school system have some students virtual and others in person? Is it because last year’s attempts at virtual learning were a unadulterated disaster?

Probably.

Meanwhile, our county executive (who is a FORMER TEACHER if he hasn’t reminded you lately) last week bragged about a gesture that was akin to adding a bucketful of sand to the shoreline of Ocean City:

Does he really think 1,000 COVID tests will support the whole school system? That may not be enough for ONE SCHOOL, let alone all the schools.

Voters need to remember empty gestures like that come November.

Tick, tock, Johnny O. We’re hoping your 15 minutes of self-serving grandeur is coming to an end in less than 10 months.
