Meanwhile, what happens when you are a governor who insists schools must be kept open with in-person learning, businesses must stay open, and refuse to order even the minimal thing you could do (masks) because you claim “it will breed resistance?”

Schools tap college kids, administrators to fill in for sick, quarantining teachers (OWH)

Gov. Ricketts’s desire to destroy “government schools” proceeds apace.

A substitute shortage that had frustrated Nebraska schools prior to the pandemic is now so acute that schools are in an all-hands-on-deck status, assigning administrators to cover classrooms and wooing college students to sub over their winter break.

Students who are studying to be teachers are being recruited to work after Thanksgiving during the extended winter breaks that college officials created last summer.

Teachers are burning plan time to cover for colleagues. Students whose teachers are absent are being temporarily placed into other teachers’ classrooms.


Conveniently for the governor, college students do not have teaching credentials, which he also wishes to dispense with.
