Unless you have been inside an elementary classroom day in and day out for the last two years (spoiler alert - I have) you have no idea how much masks are impacting student education, especially in literacy. If children cannot see teachers mouths and understand them clearly to achieve a strong foundation in reading and language, we will have a much bigger issue on our hands then the small risk of Covid. Get your vaccine and take your masks off. Let teachers take our masks off so we can do our jobs effectively. This is no longer an emergency. Keep up and do something about it…NOW…not in 30 days. We, and our students, have been waiting two years. Where is the urgency to follow CDC recommendations immediately now?!
