The Rochester Teachers Association advocated for a full remote learning schedule to open the school year. That's exactly what the district decided to do. It makes Rochester the only district in Monroe County without any in-person learning this fall. There have been mixed reactions, with some parents saying that this puts predominantly Black and brown children at a disadvantage.
Our guests discuss the decision and the plans for the fall:
- Adam Urbanski, president of the Rochester Teachers Association
- Pablo Sierra, parent of two students in the Rochester City School District
