DECATUR, Ga. — Dozens of teachers in the City Schools of Decatur district protested the return to campuses Tuesday afternoon.
They gathered outside the central district office off Electric Avenue with signs against a return. Students have been learning remotely since the start of school on Sept. 18. They are scheduled to move to Phase 2 on Oct. 12 with some students returning.
Many are saying that the plans to return are not sufficient.
One sign held by a protester read: "We shouldn't have to trust WHOLE LIVES to HALF-BAKED plans!"
Others are simply saying that while cases are high, they should continue teaching from home.
