USA: Back to school? 1 in 5 teachers are unlikely to return to reopened classrooms this fall, poll says.

By ITS Education Asia


There has been much discussion about how many parents are hesitant about sending back their children in school in those countries that still have high incidences of the virus.  This article reported in the USA Today highlights an additional problem of trying to get schools re opened.  Many teachers also fear returning to an unsafe workplace.

In an exclusive USA TODAY/Ipsos poll, 1 in 5 teachers say they are unlikely to go back to school if their classrooms reopen in the fall, a potential massive wave of resignations. Though most teachers report working more than usual, nearly two-thirds say they haven't been able to properly do their jobs in an educational system upended by the coronavirus. 

A separate poll of parents with at least one child in grades K-12 finds that 6in 10 say they would be likely to pursue at-home learning options instead of sending back their children this fall. Nearly a third of parents, 30%, say they are "very likely" to do that. 

As highlighted in this article it is going to be extremely difficult to get anything like normal schooling happening while the virus is still spreading.
