“Your Kids Aren’t Suffering Due To School Closures Because At Least They’re Not Starving To Death” – Nashoba Regional School Committee Member Sharon Poch


This is Sharon Poch from Lancaster, a member of the Nashoba Regional School Committee (Lancaster, Bolton, Stow).

Nashoba Regional High School has been remote for almost a year now. Children nationwide continue to deal with rocketing suicide rates, academic struggles, child abuse, and other negative consequences of social isolation. But according to what Sharon Poch said the other night at a School Committee meeting it’s really not a big deal for kids to be put in this situation because the cowardly adults in their lives would prefer to hide from a virus that has no chance whatsoever of harming a single child in this state. In her own words, “they are not suffering.”

That whole thing was a big “fuck you” to any parent who has the audacity to complain about their child being denied an education for an entire calendar year. It’s a declaration that they will continue to hurt your children because there are other kids somewhere in the world who have it worse. There are kids in Rwanda who are starving, therefore kids in Lancaster can suck it up and never go to school until Sharon Poch feels safe.

I encourage you consider a broader perspective. It is true that many children who are suffering. Kids who live in poverty and do not have food to eat. Children who are facing live threatening illnesses. Children who live in homes with an addictive parent. Children who suffer abuse. 

Yea, we should think about children who suffer from abuse. Like the ones doctors say are suffering in silence because they have no teachers to advocate for them when they’re sitting at home staring at a computer.

“Often child abuse and neglect is something that happens at home or in the neighborhood and so the numbers are down because so many times it’s going to be a teacher or counselor at school to report the problem,” said Dr. Seifert.

Sure, your kid is crying and thinking of self harming due to 12 months of social isolation, but at least they’re not being abused. That would be bad.

This might be the most elitist, privileged thing I’ve ever heard:

“I suspect though, that in our community there are very few who experience suffering. The circumstances present challenges to our children. Academically, socially, and emotionally. They create hardships that our children would not face in a more traditional school year. They force children out of their comfort zones. We wish things were different, but they are not suffering.”

She “suspects” that no one is suffering in the community. Has she spoken to every parent in the community? Nope. But they live in Bolton so clearly it’s not possible for their kids to suffer from mental health issues. Mental health can’t touch your town if Route 117 goes through it. High school seniors can just forgo their entire senior year, never have a prom, never play sports, never have a graduation, and never get to really experience one of the most memorable years of their lives. It’s not a big deal really, it’s just forcing kids “out of their comfort zones.”

And it doesn’t get any more out of touch than this.

“If your children are suffering do not wait another minute, reach out now. There is help available to your family.”

Yea, negligent parents who aren’t feeding their kids, or who are physically abusing them should reach out for help for their family. That’s what abusive parents do. This woman is really in touch with the realities of day to day life outside of her home.

She also really doesn’t want parents complaining about what’s happening in front of their kids, lest the children find out that the adults in their lives are intentionally making them suffer.

They hear us when we say that this is a lost school year.

It is a lost school year.

They hear us when we say that they have fallen far behind academically and question how and if this can be made up. 

They have fallen far behind.

They hear us when we say that the loss of education this school year has cost our children years of their lives.

It has cost children years of their lives they’ll never get back.

Are these them messages we wish for our children to take from this year? Because your child is hearing these messages and they believe them.

Yes, these are the messages we should tell our children. They deserve to know that they’re getting screwed.

They foster a mindset that says that these losses have happened to them and that they do not have any power to change them. 

These losses have happened to them and they have no power to change them. Better not expose children to reality. That would be bad.

We must stop focusing on loss. Overcoming challenges creates resilience.

Yea, why can’t you kids just focus on being resilient instead of focusing on how you’re being robbed of the thing that make life worth living?

I love this line of thinking too. How exactly are we being resilient by hiding from a virus? In World War 2 people were resilient by working in factories and fighting overseas. They were resilient because they risked their lives in order to make sure that life could go on as normal. What challenges are we overcoming if we sit in our homes and hide every time a new virus comes along? Because that’s the new precedent that has been set. Just wait until the next one comes along that can spread up to 10 feet, requires 5 masks, and only has a 98.9% recover rate.

Then again when you’re a self-employed “science specialist” who can work from home how can you be expected to relate to people who don’t have that luxury?

      I’d be willing to bet none of you commenting have ever met Sharon or know much about Nashoba district. She is an incredibly kind person. The Poch family is very supportive of the students and teachers in Nashoba, particularly Lancaster and it’s a shame what this website allows to happen. The uneducated and uninformed hate and vitriol that I have read in this thread is disgusting. I taught one of her children and they were one of the most polite, bright, hard working, kind hearted students I have taught in my career and clearly are being raised right. Her message is being taken incredibly out of context and people are warping and twisting her words so they can attempt to make it fit their narrative. The people who actually know Or have met Sharon know what’s he is about and the type of integrity she possesses. All the rest simply have some axe to grind.

    Sounds like possible white supremacy to me; I thought the lefties were against it. The kids who will likely be hit the hardest by not being in school will likely be the those of color who have lowest-income parents. How does the teachers’ union get around the harm they are doing to children of families who can’t find alternatives to public schools? I wonder what the black teachers think.

    About 15-16 years ago I met Sharon and her husband through a mutual friend when I was at one of our local, more upscale joints. Turns out her husband and I had the same employer a few years before but didn’t know each other there. Anyway, he was/is a major cuck. Like you could tell he wanted to watch dudes bang his wife, or at least allow her to cheat and probably lick her underwear when she gets home. Sharon was actually a really decent piece of ass back then, definitely had the whole milf/cougar that wants to suck and fuck it all before she dies or hits menopause type vibe.

    So anyway, my friend that introduced us there at the restaurant told me he had been trying to fuck her but that every time they were supposed to meet he got called into work. So one day he set up a time to bang her at his house. Like before, he got called to work. But this time he forgot to call her and put it off again.

    So anyways, he goes to work and doesn’t think again about it. Elusive pussy and what not. Happens to the best of us. So he worked for 4 or 5 hours, did what he had to do, and went home. Said the house smelled like old pussy from the front door to upstairs. Apparently when he wasn’t there when Sharon arrived, she ended up banging his 19 year old son who answered the door and let her in thinking his dad would be right back. What an insatiable slut.

    He said the smell of old pussy lingered all over the house for a week.

    Teachers just want to be vaccinated! Why don’t you ask Superintendent Binienda why she allowed a select group of (non-teaching) Worcester Public School employees to volunteer at vaccine sites DURING THE SCHOOL DAY while TEACHERS, the REAL force behind education were not given that opportunity? I’m sure it has something to do with they don’t have anything to do during the school day because they DON’T TEACH ( School adjustment counselors, instructional coaches) OR they are her friends or “Southies” who now have upper management positions (Principals, Managers, Directors, Assistant Superintendent.) Total disregard for teachers whom she has NEVER supported (and let’s not forget the Latinos she’s been accused of discriminating against.)

    I hate these fucking over-educated Jugheads, her and people like her our danger to society. They would rather do anything they can to cater to the union, then to actually get back to educating our children. When this teacher contract is up they’re going to be looking for more money. I think they should have money taken away from them and see how fucking fast they go back to work.

    I agree with this whole schools should open thing, but i’d like to remind most of u, the rest of us don’t give two shits about ur kids with all due respect, as I would anticipate the same treatment. Also children are notoriously unhygienic and bad at directions so it kind of makes sense that you isolate the WORST demographic capable of spreading this dumb virus and making lockdown more justifiable. I mean just think ahead a bit and stop whining about your kids , most of us can’t do normal shit, little billy can wait like the rest of us especially since he prob isnt washing his hands after slobbering on every touchable surface imaginable.

    Words of compassion, coming from an upper-Middle Class Whitey whose income didn’t get reduced by one penny this past year, and who obviously couldn’t care less about children suffering from stunted development and mental anguish. Bravo, Sharon, you’re a real lady of the people.

    Does this stupid fucking cunt not realize a huge percentage of children are actually going hungry because they can not have in school meels.
    I have no children, but I know fact, that a huge percentage of children rely on school meals so they do not go hungry. I also know that some districts are still running school meal services. Though what good does that do if the child’s parents do not have a vehicle? What good does it do if the parent or parents is/are junkies running around all day for their next fix, while the kids are left home, what good does that do if the parents are abusive peices of shit and don’t care if their kids starve?

    For this cunt to say at least your kids are not starving is way out of whack! Now most people who live in that district probably do not worry about food but what about the few in the district who do. What about the kids in other districts who have teachers and administrators spouting the same shit. I thought one of the liberal talking points was “what about the children” ” think about the children” “children” “children” “children”
    These people do not give one fuck about any of the children. How can they care about the children when half of society “liberals” as a whole does not give one fuck about the next person unless it’s a way to virtue signal or score woke points and social media likes to fill their narcissism.

    I fucking hate them all with a passion and dream of the day we put on our boogaloo shoes!
    This shit needs to end and end right the fuck now! It’s high past time that people stand up for each other and one another and end this shit. I have no dogs in this school shit or a few other things they are pulling, but I’m sick and fucking tired, of seeing my fellow countrymen suffer because of it. I’m also sick of seeing these poor kids being used as pawns and held hostage by a small fraction of our country.

    It needs to end and end now. You people with dogs in this fight need to stand the fuck up and grab ya balls or tits and stop bitching about it online and do something about it. Do not think for one minute you’re alone. Like I said, I dont have dogs in a few of these fights but I’m on your side and will ride off into the night with you!
    Though some may not be vocal and some are ready and waiting in the dark. We are here with you and are on your side and will cover your six. I dont care if I dont know you personally and a lot of us feel and think the same. We are here for you because you’re our fellow countrymen. You might not be friends or family through blood but you’re an American and that makes us family no matter what.
    Not everyone in my generation is a peice of shit liberal and we do care about others, especially the ones who will grow up and run this country one day.

    It’s been a while since I’ve commented but I see and hear everything! I hope you have all been well!

    BONGINO: “Well, they call it the Secret Service for a reason, but I maintain a lot of contacts outside of even law enforcement, and I’m telling you, from what I’ve heard from people in my network, everyone knows how bad it is. Everyone. It’s not a mystery. It is the worst-kept secret in the White House. And how they can — think about this. We are only in the second month of this.

    Young children need attention from a teacher in school. Adults can learn remotely but young kids cannot. These shit bag teachers and their unions are total pieces of human garbage. They just wanna suck back a paycheck and not do their jobs.

    I hope these asshole teachers form a circular firing squad and snuff each other out.

    Do you think that any of us who pay taxes or college tuitions will receive any tax or tuition breaks because our kids can’t socialize, learn effectively, play sports, have physical ed, etc? Not a chance. Next year, because of many state laws, minimum school funding will increase so the schools will find ways to spend all of this money that they are saving on stockpiling desks, more virtual learning tools “just in case”, and other things that don’t give any of us the value that we are paying for.
