First the public comment. Apparently, teachers are selfish for not wanting to go back without being vaccinated. Meanwhile, my wife has taught Zoom classes where at least one kid was taking the class from a car on the road to Tahoe.
The upshot is that she's being sent back into the class room in a week, one week before the grading period ending, and they are switching all the kids around to accommodate various "remote learning" or "hybrid learning" requests. Her kids will be "social distanced" at exactly 6 ft per desk, measured with a ruling. They have been assured that they are using the "state rules" and "CDC guidance", exactly as stated, to the minimal level allowed.
- Get your ass back into the classroom
- Vaccination is your issue
- We are doing the bare minimum
Anyway, the upshot:
- Working 100% remote until at least August
- Phase it in after that over a period of months after that
- Very allow part time remote work basically forever
Anyway, it's a bit weird...it's clear that I will work from home at least some of the time for the rest of my career.
It does seem like there's a weird phase change going on in silly valley at least. I think tech is finally going to go for remote work in a big way. I wonder what this will do for traffic, housing prices, etc. Who knows? Oddly, Zillow says my house is 20% more valuable now then this time last year.
