Teachers Unions Demand Stop to In-Person Learning

Coronavirus cases create roller-coaster for students, parents and teachers.

Across America, teachers unions are once again calling for a halt to in-person classroom learning as coronavirus cases climb once more.

Even though some state governments have allowed schools to reopen with precautionary measures and relaxed health restrictions, the success of a classroom setting in the middle of a pandemic has been mixed.

The American Academy of Pediatrics and the Children’s Hospital Association reported over a million  U.S. children under 18 have been diagnosed with COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic. For the one-week period ending November 12, there were 11,946 positive test results in children, a substantially larger number than any previous week in the pandemic.

“As a pediatrician who has practiced medicine for over three decades, I find this number staggering and tragic,” said Dr. Sally Goza, president of the American Academy of Pediatrics, which represents pediatricians. “We haven’t seen a virus flash through our communities in this way since before we had vaccines for measles and polio.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the children, families, and communities, as well as physicians and other front-line medical teams, experiencing the toll caused by the increase in COVID-positive tests.
  • For teachers and students whose classroom instruction continues to be interrupted by coronavirus surges.
  • For the Coronavirus Task Force as they develop strategies to mitigate the virus.
