Private school in Miami will not allow their teachers to be vaccinated

Well Lidia, there was the first clue what you were getting yourself into.

Why would a vaccinated teacher ever consider working for this “school”?

I think that the term “teacher” is used loosely with this particular scam, I mean institution.

Initially was the “Pinky and The Brain School”, but they got sued by Warner, so they had to change the name.

I like to think I am very well read, and keep up with the anti-vax stuff pretty well. New one on me.
There is this lovely rumor:
Fact Check-COVID vaccines do not ‘shed’ from one person to another and then cause reproductive problems | Reuters
Oh Noes! I might catch vaccinated!

Ah, here we go. I knew I could trust Orac to be on it

Its interesting to see a whole school enter to compete for a Darwin Award. But I betcha they don’t teach no damn Darwin, do they?

Well, that is one way to CREATE a teachable moment on Darwin.

Parents, and the general public as well.

While that’s bad for the teachers, this school really doesn’t sound like the sort of place anyone should work anyway. Or even walk into.

Well, that seems like tuition money well spent.

I suspect that with such a completely ridiculous policy, anyone who is either fired or denied a refund of tuition will be able to sue for compensatory and punitive damages. Expect this “school” to go bankrupt in the near future.

Except according to the school’s website, they appeal to the recklessly stupid parents. The school goes out of their way to look for vaccine exceptions for students. They are literally the private school for plague spreaders

the biggest simplification here is that you’re comparing the number of people vaccinated on one side, with the whole number of people in the us - including uninfected and never exposed.

so you’re really not looking at likelihood, you’re just looking at totals.

i don’t think the likelihood of catching covid or of dying from it can even really be extracted from those numbers - especially because of all the mitigation work, like masking, stay at home orders, and vaccinations have worked to decreased our chances of exposure

( the easier likelihood to calculate would be risk of death if you catch covid by comparing to total infection numbers )

your bigger point of course is spot on - the numbers work against them even if their facts were right, and they are not.

[ edit: fwiw, according to wikipedia, the current us case fatality rate not accounting for age is 1.8%… so that’d be a better rate to compare against theirs. though it will fall as people get vaccinated, because vaccination reduces disease severity. thank goodness. ]

Yeah, pro tip: if your school requires you to sign an NDA or anti-disparagement agreement, you really need to reconsider.

So the conservative mega-doner who owns the for-profit school says:

  1. Organizations can demand proof of vaccination status ( a vaccination passport)
  2. they assert the right to deny services, entry or employment based on vaccination status.

That works for me. Of course, we’ll operate in the other direction for airlines and public schools and sports stadiums. The school can keep out the vaccinated, all others can keep out the unvaccinated.
To quote the monster from Men in Black:
“your proposal is acceptable”
