Williams: Teaching during the shelter in place

Did you know there is a dedicated group working hard during the shelter in place?

Teachers are still teaching. My wife gets up every weekday morning and goes online to reach her students. She spends many hours preparing lessons.

No, the teachers are not directly exposed to the virus but they are refusing to let their students down.

It will be important when the students return for there to be health checks every day of both students and staff.

The school buildings need to get the cleaning attention they have never received. For years public school buildings have been neglected. Now it is time for the California legislators to make sure there is funding to keep the school buildings in safe, healthy condition. Our teachers and students deserve the best.

The new normal for schools is that taxpayers support the public schools as a neglected school is a neglected student and educators.
