I can guarantee it won't work anywhere else. So stick a fork in that one.  :)

I’d love to have summer school for my kids but their teachers are still working now, providing an online curriculum and instruction. Difficult to imagine faculty (especially if represented by unions in public schools) agreeing to work through the summer.

The more modern Jewish schools that already incorporate a ton of technology in their teaching curriculum might be able to pull it off, but that's about it.

After what’s going to be happening the next few months we're all going to need the summer vacation more than ever.

My high schooler has 60% of her schedule, including regents subjects with the usual regularity.  As long as she takes and passes the regents on the original dates, I vote for no school.  We try to fill our summers with experiential learning and wouldn't want to part with that.

Has your school returned tuition? This online learning is a little joke... question- what’s the downside of just putting all the teachers on unemployment and the school can make up the lost income to the teachers (33-%) next year? Parents would save about 1/9 of all tuition. Thoughts?

How will they feed their families now?
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

We're in uncharted territory here.
It is not THAT long ago that all school years ended with the planting season.

But they started in the beginning of August...

You pay the teachers 2/3 now (via unemployment) and pay them a 1/3 severance or make it up next year.... then you return 1/3 to the parent body (2/3 being eating by the govt and 1/3 need to make the teachers whole).

2/3 of minimum wage = starvation wage
May you slide down the banister of happiness & get many splinters of success up your career.
