Another Big Storm Hitting Northeast Next Week: NYC Teachers, Put a Snow Day Out of Your Thoughts

Another big storm is hitting the northeast next week.

You know the drill: the governor will solemnly intone: STAY OFF THE STREETS AT ALL COSTS.

And New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Schools Chancellor Carmen Farina will say that it is business as usual and all New York City Schools staff must show up to work.

Never mind that Public Advocate Letitia James and an ever growing chorus of critics are questioning the No School Snow Closure policy.

Never mind that roads and sidewalks are often treacherous.
We have this eerie and tragic story from Mahwah, New Jersey of a woman caught dead in the snow:

YOUNG CHILDREN DISCOVER WOMAN'S BODY IN SNOW IN NEW JERSEY
How will it sit in de Blasio or Farina's conscience if such a perished person is a student on their way to school?

De Blasio will read this from Accuweather and say, "Great. Just rain next week. I'll keep schools open."
