CEA’s most recent poll of members found teachers remain concerned about school safety as the pandemic continues into a third school year. In particular, teachers want to see improved ventilation systems, social distancing, and COVID-19 testing policies to protect students, educators, and their families.
CEA President Kate Dias, Vice President Joslyn DeLancey, and Executive Director Donald Williams shared the survey findings with the news media at a press conference on Friday, and the survey has since been featured on TV and radio news programs and in newspapers around the state.
