COVID-19: Anxiety rises before more Canadian students resume in-person learning

  • Publicado el 10 ene 2022
  • As Omicron rages, anxiety is rising before students in Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia resume in-person learning on January 17.

    British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan schools returned to in-class learning this week or last. Meanwhile, New Brunswick students will stay online until at least January 24, and Newfoundland and Labrador is still assessing.

    Eric Sorensen looks at the risks and rewards of kids returning to the classroom.

      @B You are in for a surprise if you think that is tough. The neoliberal system will put a lot more pressure on you. There are far greater issues, such as how you will be a wave slave for life as a result of criminal trudeau and his buddies denying you and everyone your age the opportunity to buy a residence to live in, and how cost of living will go up even if you are a professional and make relatively good money you will live like a McDonalds worker while those born earlier/luckier than you will have hundreds of properties getting rich doing nothing. There is also climate change that will affect you and your kids. There are far greater and bigger issues coming than spending some time online. This will build resilience if anything. Neoliberal capitalism is a mental disorder.

      @Nick I know the feeling. Sometimes I have to edit my posts for 10 minutes trrying to find out which harmless keyword is causing the 1984 youtube censor. Even though I may potentially disagree with you I am still interested in what you have to say. I think that is how we get to the truth. Not through censorship. It is rather pathetic. Then these clowns wonder why people are hesitant to get the V.

      She is right - she shouldn't have 30 kids in her classroom. Perhaps 38-39 would be better like when I went to school. Today's teachers are lazy @sses.

    so schools are closed and the number are up. so what your saying is it doesn't matter if there open or closed, therefore the schools should be open as your imposing more health risks by keeping them closed.

    There were 2 places of business that never closed a single day due to covid, the airports and the liquor stores. Couldn't close the liquor stores because the domestic violence would go through the roof and couldn't close the airports because people need vacations. Nothing to see here, but it sounds like a money people thing since they're the only ones that can afford to stay sauced up and travel to their sauced up vacation spots.

      @B I like the bars are safe until 11 p.m. and church choirs can't do their singing. Singing spreads covid, but drunk & slobbering on each other is fine until 11 p.m.

    • Tard Vargus
      Tard Vargus Hace 8 días +2

      @Matthew Johnson it's sad when they'll leave the liquor store open for fear of violence and won't let family go to a funeral or hospital to see a sick relative because of a vaccine status.

      @Pe Vo there's no flaw in my logic, you might want to look deeper into maybe the other interests in those businesses.
      I'll help you out - government/unions/ big business.

      One flaw in your logic. The liquor stores are not for-profit private businesses. Also, I had a convo with a guy in line at an LCBO last lockdown and he was saying he was laid off and wasn’t sure how he was going to pay his rent. (And yet he’s in line at the LCBO?). Liquor stores are open for the middle class and the poor. Not the rich

    1:23 he's left out some key details when he says, "hospital system" --- what he really means is: "monopolized, rationed, hospital system".
    One that won't allow for any competition and thus condemns everyone to follow these measures, as to avoid a self-implosion that otherwise would not occur.

    Of course they are anxious not necessarily from Covid but by the fact that they will probably close again eventually once they reopen this report already is kind of giving the hint beforehand

    If teachers do t have the mental fortitude to withstand being in school with kids they should do something else. BTW, why don’t we have psychological evaluations for teachers like other professions?

      @Benny Blanco I dropped many more truth bombs that day;) I have been homeschooling since March 2020. He went for a few weeks at the start of this school year while they were allowed to choose not to wear face coverings.

      It's much safer to be around kids who are a much lesser vector for spread than it is to work in an office of adults.
      If I were a teacher, I'd be looking on the bright side of my job being one of the less riskier ones, all things considered.

      I asked the teachers at my kids school if they ever thought they would be turning kids away from school? My son brought up the fact that Malala got shot just to go to school. I got a call later that day and was told I wasn't allowed back on school grounds, my son would be though, if he wore a face covering...

    Why dont they allow limited number of kids in schools everyday or make it voluntary and give parents the option to let their kids attend online? Allow teachers to teach online on somedays or if they are coivd positve.

    Christine Elliott the health minister in Ontario will be facing a criminal complaint as was filed recently in the Superior Court of Justice by a consortium of 1k lawyers and 10k doctors led by Dr. Reiner Füellmich of Germany this case will revolve on the roll out of mandates and certain abnormalities surrounding it's safety.

    Whose anxiety?
    All I've heard are complaints from kids that they've missed school.
    The anxiety of kids rise when they AREN'T in school.
    It's the anxiety of members of this new religion of hygiene that increases --- whenever any "sinner" isn't following their dogma.
