This week, public school teachers in DC — who, you understand, care for nothing as much as educating the children and equipping a new generation with the tools they will need to succeed in life — protested the plan to possibly reopen schools in the fall by placing fake body bags outside of the school district’s offices. Striking a careful balance between absurd melodrama and shameless self-aggrandizement, one of the bags was accompanied by a cardboard gravestone that said “RIP Favorite Teacher.” Others read “killed in the line of duty” and “how many will you let die?”

Many activist teachers across the country have been engaging in similar theatrics for weeks now. A recent CNN article warns that educators are preparing their wills in anticipation of going back to work, an act apparently tantamount to being sent to death row. Indeed, a recent article on a website for educators called Bored Teacher claims outright that reopening schools is a “death sentence” for teachers, which seems to be the general sentiment expressed by many of the hundreds of teachers who have taken to the streets to protest the re-opening of schools.
