Social Distancing? Broward Parents Forced To Wait In Long Lines For Laptops

For the last two weeks, the entire government from Fed to local, preached “social distancing.” Gatherings of 10 or more people were banned. The Catholic Church cancelled mass. Bars were closed. Spring Breakers were vilified for gathering on Fort Lauderdale Beach. “Curbside pickup” is the new normal at restaurants. But on Friday, hundreds of parents forced to stand in line together because they need to sign for laptops from the Broward County school district. WTF?!?

Parents waited in close quarters Friday morning outside Plantation High School for the distribution of laptops needed for remote learning.

Guess the Broward School District never heard of “social distancing.” Imagine a competent school system that distributed technology to students at the beginning of the school year.

UPDATE: The Sun-Sentinel reports long lines at South Plantation High School:

  1. Just give them the damn laptops! Stop worrying about somebody getting something they don’t deserve! Those laptops are mostly junk anyway. They’ll be replacing them next school year and all of these will go into storage!! Outrageous!! Those parents PAID for the laptops to begin with with their taxes. Pass them out quickly, and let them go home!!
