7 Teachers & 1 Student Are First Batch Of Positive COVID Cases Among Schools 😲 More To Come?!
We all knew this was coming...🦠
Seven different teachers and one student have reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 in the past few days.
This serves as a pretty big warning sign for officials and has in fact prompted a fresh call from the Union of Professional Educators (UPE) to switch lesson structures towards a more online learning-based system.
In light of this, the UPE said it is "amazed" that the Education Ministry hasn’t moved schools back online yet and urged this decision strongly.
“If things continue as is, with numbers of educators already worryingly low, and with patchwork solutions being put in place to conceal that fact from the general public. The certainty that teachers are falling ill, and will continue falling ill, will only lead to one disastrous conclusion”
- UPE Executive Head Graham Sansone
