New NJEA president says schools are ready for in-person learning

Sean Spiller: ‘People want their kids back in school if possible and done safely; let's make sure to do all we can to keep them there’

A new report from the American Academy of Pediatrics reveals more than a half million children tested positive for the coronavirus within the past three weeks just as schools reopened nationwide. Still, Sean Spiller, new president of the New Jersey Education Association and member of the NJ PBS Community Advisory Board, says his union is undeterred.

“People want their kids back in school if possible and done safely; let’s make sure to do all we can to keep them there,” Spiller said in an interview with NJ Spotlight News.
