Parents and teachers are expressing their frustration and concerns as students return to classrooms this week.

“There needs to be a better way of figuring out how to identify positive people before they come into the building,” a concern Diamonte Brown says was shared with her.

Brown, president of the Baltimore Teachers Union joins Dr. Kaye to discuss the school system’s decision to keep classrooms open amid a surge in coronavirus cases and the impact it could have on families.

On Monday, Baltimore City Public Schools held a virtual meeting to layout how officials plan to keep staff and students safe and school doors open.
