I don't know what you're talking about, teachers have been working their butts off this entire time. They've had to retool their entire lesson plans. If you look at a teachers actual schedule, the time they're allotted for this is typically less than 1 hour a day and includes their grading time, office hours, and wellness checks on students. They've got parents checking in even more, scrutinizing every move they make. They're required to check in on every student personally daily, which used to be as easy as stopping by their desk but now requires scheduling with every student. I don't know how much teachers get paid in Canada, but here they start at $40k annually. There are plenty of teachers who have second jobs. It's not an easy job.
