Baltimore Teachers Union on students returning to classrooms amid surge in COVID cases
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.
As @bcpsspcab wrote in their letter, welcoming students back from break under current systems w/ record level infection rates is poor planning. We need negative tests from all students + staff BEFORE reentering in person programming. #ResultsToReturn https://t.co/oYZxJ58sRf— Baltimore BTU (@BTUBaltimore) January 2, 2022
