While many teachers refuse to return to in-person classes in San Diego public schools because of concerns over COVID, San Diego teachers are fine with offering in-person classes to recent migrant kids who have just crossed the border, even though they have much higher rates of COVID infection than American schools.
Fox News explains:
EXCLUSIVE: Unaccompanied child migrants housed at the San Diego Convention Center have an alarmingly high COVID-19 infections rate – but local teachers will be providing them in-person instruction before their own students.
Hundreds of migrant girls have been housed at the facility as the Biden administration is trying to figure out how to handle a crisis of unaccompanied children flocking to the southern border.
Of more than 700 unaccompanied girls transferred to the center, at least 82 have tested positive for the virus as of Tuesday afternoon, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services told Fox News Tuesday evening.

The Blaze added this:
The San Diego County Board of Education has agreed to send teachers to provide in-person instruction for the hundreds of teen migrant girls being housed at the San Diego Convention Center, while many of the schools in the district remain closed to in-class learning.
One county supervisor said of the move, “I wish every child in San Diego County was allowed the same opportunity.”
