Superintendents Facing Pressure To Reopen Schools Amidst Safety Concerns | Andrea Mitchell | MSNBC 1

 

Jeff Gregorich, superintendent of the Hayden-Winkemen Unified School District in Arizona, is facing pressure from the state's governor to reopen school in person, despite already losing a teacher to the coronavirus. He says, "I don't believe that we can keep the teachers and the students safe," under the current conditions, and that he's concerned that children could spread the virus to their families, including grandparents in multigenerational homes. Aired on 08/04/2020.

    How about we start sending our kids & grandkids to school when the white house stops testing their staff 15 times a day…

      @SouthSide Chicago
      Those on the right do the exact same thing.
      How can you be so oblivious to that fact?
      Grow a pair yourself and step out of that Fox Noise bubble you’re in, son.

      Why don’t we send our kids to school and test them 15 times a day? By closing schools we are going to severely impaired minority athletics.

      We have to remember, almost all if not all Republicans and Democrats in DC send their kids to private school. They have a choice and they do not send their children to public school. Even the Obamas sent their daughters to a private school.

  2. Pure insanity, with covid19 on the rise. Assuredly schools will end up super spreader events. SAFETY FIRST.

  3. It isn’t safe to vote, but it’s perfectly safe for teachers and children to be sacrificed. Children have died. Teachers have died. What are the long term effects on a child that gets covid?

    • When you loose again that’s going to be your excuse? Being lazy is no excuse! Get off your rear and go vote! Joe clearly needs you lol.

    Also, look at the schools that have already opened, where they tested positive. We need to protect our children! They are not guinea pigs.

    • @J yet Donald Trump said what they teaching these kids at schools ain’t right check @ Chris Wallace interview choose a side that makes sense to you this president wants to open schools but complained about what kids are taught at school come on he wants everyone sick no voting.

    • @Aaliya m Yeah and Biden thinks a skilled worker in the mining industry can simply wake up one day and become a software developer. Kind of like he woke up one day and thought he could win an election. It’s cute like watching a small child play politics.

      @J
      America is better off with a child playing politics than the corrupt orange fool who’s destroying the country.

    • @Stingjay 4000 And that’s the problem with the left. Thank you! You don’t even know why you hate the guy, all you can do is recite MSNBC propaganda lol.

    • Yea that’s why Democrats murdered 61 million unborn babies for profit. They value children on the open market.

    Haven’t the governors seen news video from the summer camp in Georgia.All the kids and staff that caught the covid19 virus.Think.

  6. If our criminal president could do a complete 180 and do all the right things to control this pandemic, then we can have kids back in school, people back at work.

    ITS NOT JUST THE TEACHERS,WHAT ABOUT THE NURSING STAFF & OTHER COROLLARY PERSONAL.?
    WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WITH THE KIDS WHO TEST POSITIVE FOR THE CORONAVIRUS. ARE THERE ISOLATION CLASSROOMS TO KEEP OTHER STUDENTS FROM GETTING SICK.?

  8. Jeff Gregorich, you have my deepest respect. It’s not easy making an easy decision in very uneasy times.

    • Yea that’s why Democrats murdered 61 million unborn babies for profit. They value children on the open market.

  9. I don’t understand how any parent could want to send their child back with the increasing evidence of long term damage even in those with mild symptoms and this kawaski type disease that appears well after a child has recovered.

  10. We should sent our children back only when Barrons school reopens.👍☠️

  16. All parents in those areas where they mandate to return to school, should sign a petition that if their kids or teachers or other staff get sick or die…the Governor is liable for criminal charges.

    If you do you’re contributing to the distribution of death.

  18. Remember to Vote Ducey out when he wants to be re-elected. An orange clown’s puppet.

    “Nobody knew” = Everyone knew except me
    “Huge” = moderate to below average in size
    “Loser” = someone who makes me feel inferior due to their talent or accomplishments
    “Policy Briefing” = Watching Fox News
