Alicia Millan started this petition to NYC STUDENTS

The governor of New York Andrew Cuomo and the Department of Education wants to have millions of students continue online learning during their Spring break. Although we are already home, we should still have our vacation since we are treating online learning as if it’s a regular school day. This decision is very unjustified and not fair to teachers and students. There are already so many people working hard trying to stop the corona virus and the teachers would like to have some time for themselves and worry about their own well being instead of overloading assignments to students. And this system of learning has impacted the students heavily. Where instead of worrying about their family members, who might be essential workers, people are worried about getting sick, anyone in their family getting sick, or possibly themselves. We our forced to put our educational values over our health and well being which is very unfair and terrifying. There are already over thousands of high school seniors part of the class of 2020 that can’t even walk across the stage to receive their diploma. They can’t go to prom and spend their last few months left of what was supposed to be the best year of their lives. They’ve worked so hard to be where they are today and for all of that just to be taken away from them because of this life threatening virus. This is the least we can do for the class of 2020. So please help with this petition to make this school year feel somewhat normal with our spring break that we were supposed to originally have.
