Teachers Unions Asks DHS To Move Classes Virtual State-wide
Teachers unions are urging the state Department of Health Services to order virtual instruction in all Wisconsin schools. Milwaukee Teachers Education Association President Amy Mizialko notes it’s been two weeks since the death of Heidi Husli, a teacher at Bay Port High School in Brown County. “She was 47-years-old. She was diagnosed, hospitalized and dead within nine days from COVID-19. When she was hospitalized she was making arrangements to teach her students via ZOOM class from her hospital bed, because that’s what teachers do.” Mizialko invoked Husli’s death as teachers unions called for an end to in-person classes until community spread of the coronavirus is contained.
