California Cancels Fall Semester Due To COVID
California recently cancelled all of their classes through the entire fall semester due to fear of big, bad COVID:
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – California’s state university system, the largest in the United States, canceled classes on Tuesday for the fall semester because of the coronavirus, while Los Angeles County said its stay-at-home order was likely to be extended by three months.
The announcements on the West Coast came after the nation’s top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, told Congress that lifting the sweeping lockdowns could touch off new outbreaks of the illness, which has killed nearly 81,000 Americans and devastated the economy.
In one of the first indications the pandemic will continue to have a significant impact into autumn, the chancellor of California State University said classes at its 23 campuses would be canceled for the semester that begins in September, with instruction moved online.
“Our university, when open without restrictions and fully in person, as is the traditional norm of the past, is a place where over 500,000 people come together in close and vibrant proximity with each other on a daily basis,” the chancellor, Timothy White, said in a statement.
“That approach, sadly, just isn’t in the cards now.”
Lucky for us nothing of value was actually lost. It’s not like anyone is gaining an education in these institutions anyway.
They’ll learn about as much pretending to complete online classes as they would from attending courses for four full years. If anything, this could provide a meager online-only break from the indoctrination camps. Because let’s be honest, no one actually pays attention to online courses anyway.
Thank God the rest of the country is not California.
