10 Tweets That Show How Teachers Really Feel About Reopening Schools

Teachers aren’t holding back.

As we inch closer to the 2021-2021 school year, there are more questions than answers about opening schools safely. Some states have announced their plans. In August Florida schools will open, and students will attend five days/week. NYC schools are opting for a hybrid plan where students will attend in person 1-3 days/week. Many states have yet to announce their plans, and President Trump and Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos support fully opening schools. With decisions varying state-to-state, and time running out, teachers are taking to Twitter to weigh in: is it safe to go back? Below, these teacher tweets on reopening share how they really feel.
