Worried Educator started this petition to NYC Mayor NYC Mayor Eric Adams and

NYC rolled out unsafe and poorly designed COVID measures for NYC students and staff. Where is the health and safety equity for our students and teachers? We are in the middle of an unprecedented COVID-19 surge due to the Omicron variant. The safety measures the union and city want to put in place for New York City schools are too little too late.

NYC schools should be remote during record surges- not permanently, but temporarily. It is ridiculous we are not remote until mid-January with case numbers so high! 

NYC families know what is best for their children. Let them opt into remote learning IF THEY WANT TO. Many students are high risk or live in multi-generational homes. These families should be able to keep their child learning remotely if they fear for their child’s safety. Currently, there is NO remote learning for absences unless the student is diagnosed with COVID or under mandatory quarantined. However, with the new test and stay policies- no students will be quarantining for exposure. 

Many people do not want to discuss that some students did well remotely. Why can’t we differentiate the available learning to students through remote options. It is 2022, students with medical issues, specific anxiety disorders, or attention issues may be able to focus and learn better remotely. Students who are shy flourished and found their voice in properly executed remote environments! 

Please sign and share to help NYC families have a voice in their child’s learning!
