Although this letter from president of the Newton Teachers Association has been included in a comment below, it deserves its own thread. It starts this way:
I am writing this open letter to vehemently protest the recent approval by the School Committee of an immediate return, on September 16, of all students and staff to in person learning under a hybrid A/B/C model. In approving Dr. Fleishman’s “Return to Learning” plan, you fail on all counts to support and protect the students and parents of the Newton Public Schools community, and you must retract that decision.
I don’t want to summarize beyond that for fear of leaving out anything. Sorry, but the hyperlinks in the letter don’t seem to work in the version I have. If anyone has them, please add as a comment.
