Parents and teachers on Tuesday gathered outside Broward County School Board headquarters chanting “five days face-to-face” as they protested for classrooms to become the norm once more.
They said they want educators to consider the future as they make their decision about schooling in the pandemic.
“They’re creating an achievement gap. All of these kids who are going to be e-learning three days a week are going to be grossly behind than kids who can afford a private education,” said one parent. “If we think that that’s not going to affect them when applying for colleges, when they’re out there competing with the rest of the world going back to school, I mean, it’s insane to think that. Our kids deserve to be in school.”
