TEACHERS SHOULDN’T BE PAID TO VACCINATE
Speaking of questionable COVID-19 spending, the Mississippi Department of Education has given the OK for school districts to pay bonuses up to $1,000 to teachers and staff who get vaccinated for the virus.
It bothers us that anyone who deals with a vulnerable population, such as children, has to be paid to do the right thing and get vaccinated. It should be a given that those who work in schools will do everything reasonably possible, starting with vaccination, to keep students, colleagues and themselves safe from this contagion, and to avoid the academically disruptive shutdowns that occur when there’s an outbreak.
