Seattle teacher’s union votes to bring students back to class
The Seattle teachers union has voted to bring middle and high-school students back to class on Monday for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
The vote passed with 81% of the members approving the agreement, according to a spokesperson for the Washington Education Association.
In the Seattle school district there are approximately 10,000 middle and high-school students.
In an effort to meet Gov. Jay Inslee’s deadline to provide in-person instruction for secondary students by April 19, the district rushed to pull together a draft of a hybrid learning model.
