On Friday, the Los Angeles teacher’s union called for schools to keep closed August 18, when the school year is set to begin.
With COVID-19 cases on the rise in L.A. County, UTLA says the health risks of in-person learning are too great. The district hasn’t yet decided what it will do in the fall, but has laid out the potential options of continued online learning or a hybrid model.
We talk with someone from UTLA about why they’re calling for distanced learning option and for how long. Plus, if you’re a parent or a student, call us at 866-893-5722.
