The Seattle Education Association last week voted not to return to in-person classes despite the urging from Governor Jay Inslee who said all teachers could receive the COVID-19 jab.
The Associated Press reported that only 36 percent of the state’s million public school students are attending some form of in-person learning. Q13 Fox reported there has been a miscommunication in the state, and many parents are unclear if their child can return to the classroom.
The report said one of the issues is access to PPE gear like masks and gloves.
The news outlet spoke to Joy Springer, an occupational therapist for the Seattle school district, who said she will not be reporting to school on Monday. Ms. Springer said,
“We want to be back with our students and it’s so nice to be back with students, but it needs to be done safely and equitably. We should have access to masks and gloves… I’ll tell you right now we come in contact with body fluids a lot throughout our day,”
TREND FORECAST: The current online learning methods have, by the emerging data, proven to be ineffective. 
Trends are born, they grow, mature, reach old age, and die. 
“New Millennium” education is a mega-trend we had forecast. As we had forecast at beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, when schools across the globe were shut down, it signaled the onset of a 21st-century online learning system. Back in 1996, Gerald Celente had forecast this movement, calling it “Interactive U” in his bestselling book, “Trends 2000”:
“Interactive U” has just been born. The new education system that will replace the current one, which was invented by the Prussians at the onset of the Industrial Revolution, will offer great investment rewards to existing and start-up companies, which create the new learning systems and continue to update them.
TREND FORECAST: Ignored by the major media and politicians is the fact that the COVID recovery rate for those aged 1-20 is 99.997 percent. Moreover, data shows children are not transmitters of the virus.
As we have noted,
“According to the BBC, a new study from researchers from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and the University of Oxford found ‘adults living with very young or primary-school-age children had no increased risk of COVID-19 infection or a related hospital admission.’”
Clarifying the question of whether older children are at greater risk of spreading the virus than younger ones, the study showed that “people living with secondary-school-age children had a very small (8 percent) increased risk of a COVID-19 infection, but no increased risk of hospitalization.” 
As we reported in our 23 February Trends Journal, in the U.S., just 711 people aged 1-24 have died from the virus, with the monthly average being 0.0000538 percent.
For states and cities where teachers are opposed to having students attend class in person, there will be anti-school tax movements. With buildings not being occupied and absent of staff, more people will demand paying fewer taxes.
