As teachers and their unions continue to oppose the return to in-person classrooms in California, there was a warning on the United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA) Facebook page for teachers not to post any photos of their holidaying on social media during spring break. Apparently, it sends the wrong message about the teachers’ position that returning to in-person schooling is unsafe.
UTLA teachers overwhelming voted not to return to in-person schooling.
Fox News explains:
UTLA teachers have been warned not to post vacation pictures on social media as the union continues to seek a safe return to in-person instruction amid the coronavirus pandemic, according to a report Monday.
The teachers were urged to keep spring break pictures off social media because it could hurt the union’s argument that it’s currently unsafe to return to the classroom, according to a screenshot that appeared to be from a roughly 5,700 member Facebook group titled, “UTLA FB GROUP- Members Only.”
“Friendly reminder: If you are planning any trips for Spring Break, please keep that off of Social Media. It is hard to argue that it is unsafe for in-person instruction, if parents and the public see vacation photos and international travel,” a post from the group read, according to FOX 11 of Los Angeles reporter Bill Melugin.
