Teachers across America are fleeing in record numbers
October 6, 2021
Schools reopening are causing teachers to quit or retire because there has been a surge of COVID-19 outbreaks due to some states banning mask mandates.
There have been more than 200,000 reported weekly cases among children in the past five consecutive weeks, The Guardian reported. With some states having no mask mandates and low vaccination rates, the spread of infectious diseases is only made worse.
Things have gotten worse for some schools; several schools and school districts, like Aberdeen School District in Washington state, and Mammoth Unified School District in California, have been forced to shut down in-person learning due to high exposure of COVID-19 or high infection rates.
