Enrollment will decline based on the power of teacher unions and how Govt allows them to continue to impact our kids negatively. COVID has made this very clear. Public schools are now not desirable. They teach a liberal view. They can’t be trusted. There is no accountability. These teachers do not care about our kids. They care about themselves. This pandemic, and how the schools are avoiding science, in paving what they should do the balance of this year for our kids - is pathetic. Private schools are the way to go.

The article says that the district (SRVUSD) will open schools as soon as it is safe to do so. It is ALREADY safe to do so - in fact, it has been safe to re-open schools for months. Public school districts in other states have been re-opened for months, with only minor issues of COVID cases. Same is true for some of the more rural counties in CA, as well as private schools all over the state. And it has been clear for months that the harm to students from being kept locked out of school has been far greater than the low risk of COVID cases. The SRVUSD needs to re-open schools now. And if the teachers' union balks, designate their lack of attendance as being a strike action. The striking teachers can then be fired, and replaced. (At the same time, offer all teachers their job back, immediately, as a non-union teacher.) The teachers' union does NOT have your kids best interests at heart.
