Online Petition Highlights Concerns From Parents, Teachers About Reopening Schools

Indiana Public Radio |

The online petition in Indiana has gained more than 10,000 signatures since last week. 

It pushes for a statewide mask requirement in schools, and calls for lawmakers and schools to provide staff members with hazard pay, offer all staff protective and sanitizing equipment, and limit class sizes. The petition also says that people who have signed it refuse to return to school until their county has reported no new COVID-19 cases for at least 14 days.
