March 24th walk-out canceled

The State newspaper is reporting that the SC for Ed walk-out planned for March 24 has been postponed or canceled, due to concerns about the coronavirus.

On Friday morning reporter Bristow Marchant wrote that the march at the Capitol was "postponed". Well, we'll see. Maybe it was really canceled.

I'm curious how a gang of teachers can get in contact with the CDC and DHEC. What kind of "consultations" did they engage in?

SC for Ed (some unnamed person) was quoted as saying, “While we are committed to advocacy on behalf of our profession, the number one concern is the health and well-being of the students we teach,”

Yeah, sure. It's all for the kids, folks. If you believe that, please call me right away about that bridge in New York City I've been trying to sell.

If it really was "all for the kids", the teachers would be at work and teaching the kids on the day planned for the walk-out.
