Statement from Mayor Bowser on the Agreement with the Washington Teachers’ Union on a Return to In-Person Learning

Thursday, December 17, 2020

(Washington, DC) – This evening, after DC Public Schools and the Washington Teachers’ Union reached an agreement on a return to in-person learning, Mayor Bowser released the following statement:

“Since the summer, we have worked tirelessly to create a plan that allows for the safe return of in-person learning — a plan that meets the needs of students, educators, and families. While CARE classrooms have been limited, we know that for many families they have provided a critical lifeline. Still, we know that the best option for our young people is in-person learning, and that has remained our focus. The road ahead is long, and there is much learning loss to be made up for, but this agreement brings us another step closer to getting our students where they need to be – in the classroom, surrounded by educators and friends, feeling challenged and loved.”
