Teachers union calls for end of ‘simultaneous teaching’
New York’s largest teachers union is calling for an end to concurrent learning. That’s the practice of half the class in person and half on a screen, learning from home.
New York State United Teachers put out a statement that it’s time to end the practice, saying it’s unfair for districts to expect or require teachers to do it.

NYSUT says the logistics were distracting for students in both settings.
The union vice president says the one thing they have learned is that face-to-face interaction is the best practice.
NYSUT also wants state lawmakers to phase out remote learning as a primary instruction practice.
