Poll: What Californians are thinking about reopening schools
BURLINGAME – (INT) - A new statewide poll reveals California parents and voters are most concerned for the health of students, educators, and families in reopening public schools for in-person instruction.
Vast majorities say the spread of COVID-19 is still a serious problem in the state and believe schools should only be allowed to reopen if they have made major changes to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, including daily sanitizing, proper ventilation systems, reduced class sizes, testing programs and required face masks.
Most respondents fear the worst of the virus is yet to come, according to the California Teachers Association.
The poll was conducted in September by Hart Research Associates among 1,257 voters and 527 public school parents.
