NEW YORK (77 WABC) — The “new normal” will likely be part of students and teachers lives in New York City this fall.
Among the options being explored are a hybrid of in-person and remote learning, and split schedules, as part of a “Fall Framework” outlined by Chancellor Richard Carranza.
Teachers’ union UFT sent a letter to educators Thursday saying the city’s public schools are a “no one-size-fits-all model.”
UFT president Michael Mulgrew also said in the letter, “The virus has put us in an impossible place, so no plan will be perfect.”
Governor Cuomo, who is yet to sign off on any details, said, “What we are doing now is we are coming up with plans, we are coming up with alternatives. We are going to study them, but we have to get a better gauge of where we are with the coronavirus before we make any decisions.”
