CHARLESTON, WV (WOAY) – The West Virginia Education Association (WVEA) have released the results of a survey among teachers about reopening schools next month.
80% of educators say they only believe schools should reopen if it’s been established by public health experts that there is sufficient equipment and planning to protect students and teachers from COVID-19. The other 20% says that schools should reopen because students are falling behind.
Gov. Justice announced last month that students would return to school on September 8th, which was delayed from the original start dates of August.
A full version of the video conference that was held this morning can be seen below.
