What Does 'Safe' Mean When It Comes to Schools & COVID — Who Gets to Decide?

What Does 'Safe' Mean When It Comes to Schools & COVID — Who Gets to Decide?

 

The Chicago Teachers Union decided last week to cease in-person schooling until a variety of conditions were met. In response, Chicago Public Schools refused to allow teachers to log in for remote instruction and demanded they return to the classroom. After days of negotiations, the two sides reached a tentative agreement. In-person classes resumed Jan. 12.

In the interim, familiar debates reappeared. The union claimed the surge in infections and inadequate COVID testing made the schools unsafe. The district and the mayor said the danger to children was still very low, and that measures taken made the schools safer than other indoor spaces. Mike Antonucci’s Union Report appears most Wednesdays; see the full archive.
