The NEA, National Educators United, a group that advocates for teachers are calling for a 2-week halt to in-person learning because of the spread of the Omicron Covid-19 variant.
In a tweet posted on Friday, December 31, the NEA called opening school buildings reckless.
Recklessly opening school buildings right now instead of working to reduce community transmission is, once again, needlessly putting millions of lives at risk. National #2weeks pause NOW to #ProtectOurCommunity Let’s #Unite4SafeSchools
