Teachers anxious to get back to work, safely

Cincinnati Enquirer – Julie Sellers |

“Since the pandemic began, communities with the highest concentration of Black residents – like Cincinnati – have had the highest COVID-19 death rates. That may explain why many CPS parents have expressed little enthusiasm for returning their children to classrooms as long as COVID-19 threatens us… CPS will be hard pressed to follow CDC guidelines calling for masks and social distancing in older and crowded school buildings. We can’t do that with all children back. Yet the proposed “blended learning” model will leave many children without live teacher instruction on days when they are not in school.”
