NYC Considers Remote Option For Schools


New York City students may soon have a remote option with coronavirus continuing its winter surge. Mayor Eric Adams admits there is a large number of children who are not being sent to school by their parents.

“I am willing to sit down and entertain with the UFT if there is a way to do a temporary remote option. If we can do it and it is a quality option but my goal, I want children in school.”

Adams still insists students are safer in school from COVID. The teachers union called for a remote option earlier in the school year. A high number of students have tested positive for coronavirus following the winter break. Earlier in the week students walked out of Brooklyn Tech High School to demand a remote option.
