Pupils in San Diego are now learning in an online-only arrangement
Teachers in San Diego Unified School District are educating young kids in person before their very own pupils, Fox News has learned.
SDUSD pupils are learning in an online-only format and also are expected to move to a hybrid version on April 12, in which they'll be learning at a combo of in-person and internet formats, according to the college district site .
"We've 130,000 children who have not been permitted at a classroom for more than a year at the San Diego United School District. It is great that there is in-person learning for all those unaccompanied minors out of Central America, however that I want every kid in San Diego Nation was granted the exact same opportunity for in-person instruction," San Diego County Supervisor Jim Desmond told Fox News.
"The machine is broken when San Diego educators are teaching kids in person, however the 100k pupils of taxpaying households at San Diego Unified School District are stuck learning from Zoom faculty," Emily Diaz, an SDUSD parent, told Fox News in an email.
"We concur that each and every kid deserves an in-person instruction, but are taxpaying pupils put last? If that is a humanitarian problem then who's rescuing San Diego Unified pupils, because our leaders have failed them," Diaz added.
SDUSD spokeswoman confirmed to Fox News that the district also has shared information regarding the chance for teachers to volunteer teaching kids in person throughout their spring break this past week.
She noted she does not know if teachers are getting paid, stating that it is around the county.
"The San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) is supplying the educational program to its unaccompanied migrant children who'll be staying in the San Diego Convention Center during July.
"The instructional program will include English language growth and social-emotional learning opportunities. The teachers that are participating in the program do this voluntarily, and the app is after a COVID-19 screening protocol according to guidelines in the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention."
"For over a year, parents and pupils in San Diego County have waited for teachers to answer 1 question: When will our colleges reopen with in-house schooling just?
"The choice to supply in-house schooling to illegal migrants is outrageous and parents have every right to be mad."
That is an SOS. They need to mandate 5 times of person learning for many pupils," Diaz, the SDUSD parent, told Fox News.
"Fourteen percent of those district are pupils with disabilities and 23 percent are English Language Learners. San Diego Unified took in tens of thousands of dollars in relief funds to deliver them back in the start of the school year but just 6000 are in-house now and we don't have any clue how cash was used," she added.
"What's happening today is immoral."
