It doesn’t matter how often you tell them, this group or graduates working for the fine but fake-sounding Educational Institute of Scotland, can’t seem to grasp the facts. Here they are again:
Throughout the pandemic, teachers were among the least likely to pay the ultimate price for the dedication their representatives never tire of telling us about.
Carers were 4 times as likely to die. Tradesmen were nearly 5 times as likely to die. Hardly any profession was less likely to die.
Why? Because children are less likely to spread the virus, end of!
At nearly 70, with a few underlying things, I’ve spent a year in near-isolation, sometimes dreaming darkly of not being able to breathe but I’m not complaining. I’ve had the jag and now feel fairly sure I won’t die from it thanks to that.
Do rank and file teachers know and agree with this campaign by the EIS? I was in the EIS for 40 years but, if still a member, I’d be telling Larry Flanagan where to go.
