The Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) fast-food restaurant chain will donate 1 million pieces of chicken to teachers in support of the effort to start a new school term.
The buckets will be given to teachers preparing the virtual curriculum or to staff working in the various trades required to keep schools clean and tidy, according to Foodsided on Aug. 13.
The fast-food chain recognizes the importance of teachers and their special vocation to teach, which is not accessible to everyone.
Returning to the classroom will be a bit complicated during this school year by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus, however, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has prepared the required safety protocols for children, educators, and all staff associated with the schools to minimize the risks.
Studies indicate that staying home causes health problems for children and parents, so it is also advisable to return to school, in addition, of course, to advance academic preparation and other aspects of socialization that take place in the school environment.
The CDC cited a review of studies conducted on pandemics that found a strong association between length of quarantine and the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, avoidance behavior, and anger, of those who suffer from confinement.
They also looked at another 2020 review that found post-traumatic stress scores for children and parents in quarantine were four times higher than those in non-quarantine.
Some of the same educational institutions developed their own strategies to make going back to school the most fruitful process for all, as is the case announced by Montessori schools in one of their tweets.
“As many of us are working hard to reassure parents and children who are nervous about the return to school, here are 8 ways that the Montessori approach can help children and adults return to school more safely and happily,” wrote this institution.

For the Trump administration, the normalization of the educational cycle is a priority and it has always insisted on it, after many debates, the Democratic opposition finally also recognized the benefits of activating the educational system.
The co-founder of the conservative magazine The Federalist, Sean Davis, noted in one of his tweets one of the possible reasons why the Democrats agreed.
“The sudden U-turn from Cuomo and Schumer on school openings suggests the monthslong Democrat position of banning children from going to school was a political disaster for them,” Davis wrote.
Davis includes another tweet from The Hill quoting Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), justifying the opening of the schools.
“Sen. Chuck Schumer: ‘If we don’t open the schools, you’re going to hurt the economy significantly,'” The Hill tweeted.
