Dear Mr. Prime Minister,
As an educator who has seen first-hand how ‘destructive’ it is when a child is not educated, I’d like to suggest a possible option re the reopening of schools, specifically for secondary schools.
Let the unvaccinated teachers teach the unvaccinated students and run the school plants on a shift system (as done last year) to rotate the said students and teachers with those who are vaccinated. Have them alternate.
Or designate specific school plants for the unvaccinated teachers and students but most of all please reconsider mandating vaccines for these students and depriving them of an education which they have a right to.
One may argue that the teachers who are vaccinated do not equate to those who are not due to their various subject areas (in the case of subject teaching) but I’m sure it is the same the other way around.
Since the schools should have qualifications information of all teachers, with some careful planning it can work on both ends.
I make this plea so as to offer another way, so that we do not end up with students out of school. The direct result of mental health repercussions and what it can lead to, in the very near future depends on it.
I know this may not encourage your vaccine mandate plan but sir we owe it to these students and to ourselves.
