DC teachers stage sickout over safety
“It’s not safe to reopen our schools at this time,” Washington Teachers Union president Elizabeth Davis told WTOP earlier this week. As reported in The New York Times, the District of Columbia Public Schools said on Monday that it was canceling its plan to bring some elementary school students back to schools next week, after teachers staged a sickout to protest the plan. Davis said that the school system had failed to provide information on how it is making schools safe. “It’s not enough just to have the mayor and chancellor say, ‘Trust us.’”
