Translation: Teachers got use too the ease of their jobs during lockdown. Only having to hand out assignments and let the children's parents do the
teaching. Now that everyone is back at school they can't phone it in any more and its now "to hard" to teach.
i hate to tell you but every teacher i know, and through them, other teachers, were all grateful to get back or are looking forward to teaching live
again. their jobs were nowhere even close to easy "teaching online". especially since most received no training at all to teach online. no training on
how to get through to, and to keep the attention of kids that are not just out of your control other than verbally, from a distance, but also in
environments just filled with more exciting distractions. expected to use computer programs most had never even seen before, with no training. no real
tech support to help them deal with computer issues. just left to fend for themselves, constantly calling on friends who might know for help. having
to provide their own computers and internet. in many cases while also trying to deal with their own kids at the same time, including trying to deal
with their issues with the programs and computers, while they were "in class". as well as dealing them when they were not "in class".
in fact most teachers still haven't recovered from all that stress put on them by online learning. with both parents and students calling them all
hours of the day and night, far beyond "school hours". dealing with things like students submitting assignments using completely incompatible Apple
proprietary software continually, which the teacher can't access. then students and parents getting pissed off that the teacher doesn't have an Apple
computer to do so, and pissed off that said assignments having to be completely redone (and repeat the whole time, with the same parents and students
again and again insisting on using Apple software). seriously teachers wanted to go back to in person teaching badly, as soon as safe to do so. far
less work and stress involved.
