Some of Miami-Dade's teachers are appalled by the actions of the school board. That's what union officials said last night after the board voted to reopen classrooms on Monday. The union wanted schools closed until it was safe to reopen, and they're accusing the board of putting politics over public safety. Superintendent Alberto Carvalho says he understands the concerns of teachers, but he vows that no effort will be spared in ensuring everyone's safety by Monday.
Teachers in Miami-Dade County will be going back to school sooner than expected. The school board voted yesterday to reopen schools on Monday, starting with pre-K, Kindergarten and ESE students. The staggered reopening will have all students back in classrooms by October 9th, but parents can still choose to keep their kids home for remote learning. The district had earlier voted to reopen schools October 14th, but the state, last week, pushed for the earlier reopening.
