The Washington Post says in its tweet that the year was “widely described” as the most grueling of the pandemic. We’re assuming they mean for teachers, and by “widely described,” they probably mean the dozens of tweets AFT president Randi Weingarten put out describing the stresses on teachers of the coronavirus pandemic.

We’d learned back in mid-November that Detroit public schools were going to move back to remote learning on Fridays this December allegedly to slow the spread of COVID-19. But the Post is reporting that teacher burnout is why some schools are moving to half-days and extended holiday breaks.


We’re not seeing a lot of support for the idea in the replies. Some are saying students would have half-days, but teachers would stay the whole day and use their alone time to grade papers and work on lesson plans — but is that really best for students?
