(St. Paul MN-) A group of teachers from Minneapolis and Saint Paul is marching and caravaning to the Governor's Residence this afternoon, urging Governor Tim Walz *not* to re-open schools to in-person classroom learning at least for the start of the new school year. Nick Faber, president of the Saint Paul Federation of Educators:

An Education Minnesota survey of teachers union members found only 17 percent support fully in-person classroom instruction this fall. Nearly one-half say distance-learning should be continued. 29 percent prefer hybrid classes. It's expected Governor Walz will announce his decision next Thursday. Republicans are urging him to let school districts make the call.
