I used to be a NYC public school teacher. NYC schools NEVER close for weather related anything. All kids can walk to school, take the subway or the bus. The teachers live mostly in the burbs and most of them drive (I took Metronorth because I’m an environut and I an awful driver). The first year teachers live in the city and most of them last 2 years they do show up until they say “wait a minute…”. So on days like today, when there are 2 ft on the ground and people are still waiting for their plow guy or doing it themselves, The teachers that are able to show up have a very rough day. You get 25 extra kids to add to your 30 and extreme weather tends to make younger people giddy. I’m glad I’m home. A little bored, but glad.
