Cynthia Rosas says she is speaking out because she thinks LA parents are being misled
A parent in Los Angeles, California, told “Granthshala and Friends” on Monday that she helped organize a zoom blackout as part of a protest to reopen schools for in-learning because “There is a really big urge to get our kids back.” school.”
Cynthia Rosas said she is speaking out because she thinks parents are being misled at the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD).
The Zoom Blackout began Monday and will continue “as many days as it goes” according to a flight that said “enough is enough” and that “parents” are now coming up with more excuses and more for UTLA. Can’t wait to maintain our schools. ”
Rosas said that over the past few months, parents have learned that “they have very little voice in this whole situation.”
“We don’t have a seat at the table when it comes to the negotiations between LAUSD and UTLA (United Teachers Los Angeles) and that’s why we’re trying standard calling and voicemail and e-mail, but it’s not working Is, “” Rosa continued. “And so I’m just part of the group of parents who are really disappointed.”
Rosas stressed that he thinks the Zoom blackout is “going to give feedback to LAUSD and UTLA that they are not providing an education for our children.”
“I think every time we log in, it gives them an opportunity to say, ‘Hey, oh, we’re providing education, there’s online education, what’s the big rush to go back to school,” she explained.
“And what we’re seeing is a great urgency to get our kids back to school,” she continued, pointing to science that it’s safe for a person to return to learning.
National Teachers Association did not tell Ramar of ‘DEBUNKS’
At the end of last month, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a study stating that person-teaching is normally safe if schools take appropriate safety precautions.
Rojas said parents are “demanding” that they should have the option of whether or not they can send their children back to school.
When asked what he remembers most about going to school, Rosas’ son Nicholas Jardim said, “What I really miss the most is my friends and how I used to play with them.”
He It has been added that he is sad about the current situation that the coronovirus epidemic has caused.
In a statement, UTLA President Cecily Mayart-Cruz said, “Local and state officials did not help create the right conditions to reopen schools for in-ins instruction and protect our students and our community Teachers are being targeted for. “
Rosas said last week health officials announced that elementary schools could all open.
“I was so excited, I couldn’t even sleep that night,” she said. “I’m like, ‘Okay, that’s it,’ but then, no, the next day, no, schools are not opening.”
“And we’re realizing that they’re not even there to open up,” Rosas said. “I mean, there is no plan even between LAUSD and UTLA to open the schools. It’s been 11 months. We don’t have a plan and they want to keep the parents together.”
She It has been added that the latest update was received by parents that once all teachers are vaccinated, the schools will reopen.
In an update to the school community sent to Granthshala News, LAUSD Superintendent Austin Betner said, “The harder the decision was in school classrooms, the harder it is to reopen.”
“We must balance the learning needs of students, the cooperation we provide to working families, and the responsibility to protect the health and safety of all in the school community.”
He Insisted that “we cannot – and will not – compromise on health and safety.”
Beutner confirmed that last week “Los Angeles County health officials announced that average COVID levels were too low for elementary schools to resume.”
He Writing that “the vaccine plays an important role in safely reopening schools, especially in the communities most affected by the virus.”
He It also wrote, “Let’s get the school staff vaccinated and provide access to the families we serve.”
“We want to provide a service to the entire education community and hope that county health officials will help us open this week by providing proper doses of the vaccine,” Beatner said.
Beatner noted that on February 8, he proposed a plan to reopen all preschool and elementary schools in the school district and provide services to students with special learning needs within 60 days. He They aim to reopen all preschool and elementary schools on 9 April, but this is contingent on the availability of vaccine supplements.
