California teacher who opted out of in-person learning heads to Mexico
Parents at a California school are questioning why a kindergarten teacher who opted not to return to the physical classroom is taking her virtual lessons on a Mexican vacation.
The Richmond teacher set the remote controversy in motion when she sent an email to parents on Friday, notifying them that she was heading south of the border for 12 days to attend her son’s wedding, according to The San Francisco Chronicle.
The unnamed teacher reportedly said she would be teaching part of the time from Mexico, but her online classes would be canceled on certain days.
The episode has struck a nerve with parents who have lobbied for months to return to in-person education, as vaccinations dramatically push down COVID-19 rates, according to the article.
