Can somebody please just sack Peter Weir ?

Tells schools not to be doing any remote learning......

After telling schools for the past 2 months to be ready to go to online learning .......
What’s the reasoning behind that? Teachers & pupils surprised by that one.

If teachers do remote learning it can count as teaching days.  He has told teachers to use the days as exceptional closures so therefore the teaching days which were in the original schools year plan now have to be made up later in the year ....

He can and he can't .
Some schools have all ready had to use exceptional closures as the schools have had to close for deep cleans for a few days .
He may try and blackmail teachers into pushing exams back into early July.

Honestly , and I hope I am wrong here, I reckon we won't be back in 2 weeks ....

Have an online lesson on Wednesday.

If one of your students was a child of an ETI inspector and you were doing a remote learning lesson, would you talk proper and all?

Funny no word from her, I'm guessing you'll be back, but cases as they are would be madness to bring all that back again! and if the numbers go up further in the next two weeks we can leave it at the door of the education minister
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

They said 2 weeks off school then said it'd take two weeks to see any benefit so how do you reassess at the end of two weeks...

If you're back then the time off was likely a waste of time. They'd need to be telling people soon though.

In relation to the north I see nothing further to the following press release;

https://www.education-ni.gov.uk/news/statement-education-minister-peter-weir-covid-19-restrictions

Out of interest for those advocating against returning to school, what would that look like? Would you propose a blended learning set up - is that achievable? Assume if you are to propose such a thing there would still need to be some face to face time? Would such a set up in your opinion or experience lead to a 'class divide' as has been mentioned by commentators previously?

Is there any amount of acceptable risk, and mitigation against same? Or is the consensus that zero risk should be accepted?
