In-person learning resumes today at Detroit public schools
DETROIT – In-person classes will resume Monday in the Detroit Public Schools Community District buildings.
Approximately 20,000 students have chosen to return to the classroom this spring amid the COVID-19 pandemic. However, only around 20 to 30% of teachers have agreed to return.
Superintendent Dr. Nikolai Viti estimates that currently only about 1,000 of the returning students are fully taught face-to-face.
“I want to send them to school, but their teachers won’t be there so it’s not a win to me, it’s not a win at all. My goal is to keep them at home until the teachers are available and efficient to go back to school and study face to face with the kids, ”said Nicole Kimble, a DPSCD parent.
Children like Kimble stay at home and learn virtually.
Teachers are offered an incentive of $ 750 more per quarter when they return to face-to-face classes.
