(en) UK, anarchist communist ACG: USA: teachers threaten sickout' to win demands

Date Thu, 21 Jan 2021 10:11:32 +0200


Arizona -- Teachers in Phoenix, Arizona, in the Chandler Unified School District, threatened a mass calling in sick in response to a decision by education authorities to continue with face to face teaching. As a result the district was forced to return its students, from preschool up to the 12th grade, to virtual learning starting on January 6th through to January 19th. ---- A survey by the Chandler Education Association indicated that 65% of 1,200 teachers did not feel happy returning to in-person teaching. They are well aware that virtual learning is not ideal, but feel that it is worth the temporary problems in order to get COVID back under control. ---- This followed a demonstration by teachers and their supporters outside the district board offices. Teachers in the Gilbert area schools also threatened a sickout if classes resumed. See here for more info.

Chicago

Elsewhere, Chicago teachers staged a similar sickout. Teachers there also also criticised the expectation that they teach simultaneously to in-person and at-home students. More info here.
