Sticky Post
The original COVID-19 Outbreak thread has been closed but is still available as a read-only thread (sticky above). The original thread had become less and less about new information and more about petty bickering. The purpose of this new thread is to link or report new information as it comes out. Try not to go off course from the topic. Those of you who had been banned from the original thread feel free to participate in this new thread. Just stay on topic. Thank you.
-----------------
Edit - Andrus:
Bottom line is that moving forward we simply don't want any political bickering going on within this thread, and want to try to limit this thread to being as much about sharing Covid-19 information as possible.

If you want to discuss the political aspects of Covid-19 with other SR members, you can do so here (If you are not already registered there, you will be required to do so)...

we had a moment to seize re: education and we collectively decided... "nah.... we good"

I have this sinking feeling we have no idea what is going to hit us.

It was always going to be bad. But it never had to be this bad. And it's probably going to be worse.

Educators in mid-management aren't engaged in education. They are akin to business management and micro-management. This requires vision and thinking and abstract reconceptualization.

But it's all about discipline management and micro-management and liability management and fiscal management.

Those are important, but NONE of them are actually about education, writ large.

For all of the people who despise the ivory tower navel-gazers (and I would include myself in this number), these are the places full of ideas - including ones that are grounded in actual practice, albeit small scale. But it never comes to the attention of districts or mid-management administrators, because those positions the coursework leading to those positions don't address them.

The answers - at least some of them - are out there. As GMR said - *been* out there - but we've been too busy thinking we're teaching and learning, when it really hasn't been about education. It's been about re-production.

Is that really happening though? I thought I seen one of the COVID Twitters said there's a recent resurgence across European countries?
A resurgence for a European country is a good day for Oklahoma.

They are doing targeted lockdowns because of a few hundred new cases.

And Melbourne
But the baseline for them to tighten up are minuscule compared to ours (50 vs 1000s or the like)

Melbourne is probably going through what is the 2nd wave, since this would be cold/flu season for them
I haven’t read the speculation about what is behind the rise in Europe

Yeah just reading article saying that rises are happening mostly in tourist areas
But Germany also said there were case in just about every county - they wondered if that meant beginning of 2nd wave

My car was 99 when I got in it the other day. By the time I had gone to the grocery and back, it read 106. :covri:
Oh crap. That ain't good. Hope your car's thermometer isn't working and that wasn't accurate. (I doubt that's the case though...) It is damn hot outside.
