LA Teachers Union: Schools Should Remain Closed


The largest Los Angeles teachers union is calling for campuses to remain closed when the new school year starts.

The board of directors and bargaining team for United Teachers Los Angeles say it’s too soon to safely bring children back to classrooms — despite a push by President Trump to have all schools nationwide reopen in the fall.

In a statement earlier this week, union leaders declared that “safety has to be the priority.”

“We all want to physically open schools and be back with our students, but lives hang in the balance,” UTLA President Cecily Myart-Cruz said. “We need to get this right for our communities.”
