200 Faculty Members Ask Governor to Move Classes Online
Can you imagine being a teacher or professor right now? Whether in high school or college, if you have some health risks... You do not want face to face classes this year. In high school or college. Over 200 faculty members have asked Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer to move all classes online for the fall semester and winter I am sure. There have been outbreaks at Central Michigan, North Carolina and the MSU athletes. Click here to see the story.
Click here to see the open letter to the Governor. Most of the signatures on there were from Grand Valley State. CMU, EMU and Saginaw Valley State were also represented.
The University of Michigan is planning on students returning and asked them to practice 14 days of social distancing... I am sure these kids will all honor the honor system.
MSU President Samuel Stanley Jr. is a doctor and a very intelligent man. He was one of the first in the state to say no to face to face classes.
It has become evident to me that, despite our best efforts and strong planning, it is unlikely we can prevent widespread transmission of COVID-19 between students if our undergraduates return to campus.
A lot of people believe the virus cases will explode once all the schools open for face to face learning.
