Who will pay the teachers wages if they are sent home for weeks? I didn't see any of them furloughed last time either. I don't believe they all worked full time last lockdown.
quizqueen, the teachers that I know (covering all ages and sections of education), were all working very many more hours than normal during lockdown. Trying to attend zoom staff meetings, run their usual lessons on line, doing special classes for those that required it, lesson preparing for new system, but still having to lesson plan for usual system, - many of them at the same time as trying desperately to find time to home school their own children,.
