Help! I’m A Closet Conservative Teacher (Part I)

Conservatism, Education, and Montgomery County Public Schools is a combination that is not welcome. I have seen it firsthand.

The main motivation for the regulation is the prevention of a second wave of the coronavirus.

A Picture Is Worse Than A Thousand Words

A popular link circulating on the internet shows the results of a demonstration. Dr. Richard Davis sneezed, sang, talked, and coughed into agar cultures wearing a standard surgical mask, and again using no mask. The result is a powerful image: The cultures without the mask clearly show more microorganism growth.
