Glenbrook High School district 225 starts school year in a flood of gobbledygook
today at 10:23 am
Illinois school district 225 governing Northbrook’s Glenbrook North and Glenview’s Glenbrook South high schools on Monday night announced that beginning on Aug. 19,
Students will follow a structured schedule with required synchronous learning experiences as part of every class as new content is introduced by teachers. Additional tiers of academic services will be available as needed to support student success and well-being.
“synchronous learning”? Let’s cut through the educationese, designed to obscured what really is happening. “Beginning on Aug. 19, students will be forced to repeat the totally failed online, at-home learning debacle. Parents and students who don’t like it can go pound.”
As for the damage that not being actually in school does to the students, here’s how District 225 will handle it:
The district states it will implement a social-emotional learning curriculum, integrated into PE and Health courses, that will address essential topics, such as creating a collective community; building resilience; coping with anxiety, fears, and stress; and accessing resources and supports.
More gobbledygook designed to obscure board’s anti-science program. It ignores the Centers for Disease Control’s finding that significant damage is being done to children by keeping them out of school. Instead of “following the science,” the school is following a political agenda that’s so obvious it doesn’t need to be described here.
So, if politics are to reign in District 225, remember that board members are elected. You’ll get your chance beginning in 2021.
